    Off on Saturday, get into the Edinburgh at 1pm so need some recommendations on places to go for food and drink in the afternoon (cheap and cheer full, not fused if its a weather spoons etc, and then once checked in the night time, not fussed on clubs, so late bars would be good enough...

    Group of 6 lads, and were staying just off princess street..

    there's a weatherspoons in george street, and a load of other bars down george street, and rose street is almost a street full of pubs. both run paralell to prince's street. there's also all the other wee streets off those streets, so have a pub crawl in the area. rose street is more your traditional pubs with normalish prices and food, george street has more your posery type places with prices to suit. the pubs down the small streets vary. there are your trad and posh places. prices are usually obvious by the look of the outside

    Some nice pubs on Grassmarket. Quite a few there, so you can just walk around and choose the one you like the most. Also Rose Street (lots of pubs there, but would not call them cheap) and High Street (old town).

    6 guys is nothing. it's a saturday afternoon in the middle of january when everyone is skint so won't be busy so anywhere will be glad for the custom

    the grassmarket is generally popular and busy in the evenings, particularly at the weekend and even during the week when the students are around. it's a popular student haunt. typically it's loads of mobbed pubs with little space to move. it's generally one of the cheaper areas to go out, which is why it's popular with students
