Traversing the infamous Royal Mile can certainly be daunting during Fringe time, but there are hidden rewards if you stay the course. Point your compass south, head towards Holyrood and seek out the historic Tolbooth Tavern. The wait here can be long - indeed there are allegedly some still in residence since the 1500's - but it's worth the stay. Fresh peas and homemade mash sit regally alongside the wonderfully juicy, meaty, gravy filled Warlock Pie, topped appropriately perhaps with a big pastry hat. No need to conjure up a reason to spend a spell here, stake your claim today!
