edinburgh scotland

I flew to a random street in the capital of Scotland. Looking at street view I was attracted by this “Standing Order” pub sign. Is it a pub? The sign above it talks about “family dining.” The line of trash bins outside leaves me skeptical that this is the sort of quaint atmospheric place to get a drink that I’d relish in Scotland, but maybe some of you Scots who I follow on Twitter can let me know what this place is like.

This picture appears to have been taken early in the morning. I like the obviously old, possibly 18th-century buildings fronting Rose Street North Lane. I wonder what the “Standing Order” was before it was a restaurant or whatever it is now.
