The Royal McGregor Edinburgh Reviews
Jul 10, 2007
I had haggis again. i enjoy the dish. it looks like chili mac to me. haggis is sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal's stomach for approximately an hour.
i like the presentation of the dish. i prefer to have the neeps (parsnips) mashed like the potatoes.
this in fact was one of the best steak and ale pie i have every eaten in scotland so far.
The Royal McGregor sits on the south side of the High Street section of the Royal Mile, well placed to take advantage of this busy street.
There has been a pub on this site for many years (it was previously known as Valentines and as The Covenanters) but The Royal McGregor you see today emerged from a renovation and redesign in April 2001. The name derives from the MacGregor clan, believed to be descended from Grigor, one of the sons of Kenneth MacAlpin, who became King of the Scots in 843.
Inside you find a long and fairly narrow bar, and a friendly welcome. Real ales and a full range of other drinks are on offer, as is a range of traditional Scottish and continental dishes.
