REVIEW – The Blackbird

*****

REVIEW – A meal at the Cambridge Bar, Young Street

*****

Does the Cambridge Bar offer the best burger in Edinburgh? We’ve been eating burgers at the Cambridge Bar for as long as we can remember, but decided to head backnd a check that they were still one of the best to be found in Edinburgh. With the weather cold and drizzly, we couldn’t wait to […]
