99 Hanover St might be your bag.

Depends what you define as decent and good.

La Piazza on Shandwick Place is good, very friendly staff.

Quattro Zero on Queensferry Street is cheap and cheerful but good.

Nonnas Kitchen at Morningside for Italian or Civerinos at Tron Kirk for Pizza.

Oregano is also really nice inside.

I'd avoid all of those places on match day. Laughing out loud Anywhere decent will be busy though.

The Cambridge Bar is good (great burgers too).

Holyrood 9A have just installed a new screen in time for the rugby.

The Three Sisters will show it on a big screen outside, great atmosphere but it'll be rammed.

The Pear Tree is a wee bit further out from the centre but also has a big outdoor screen.

McSorley's has a lot of space and is ok.

Sorry, I misread that as you were looking for a rugby pub.

Plenty bars on the streets off Princes Street such as Hanover, Frederick and Castle streets. Rose street runs parallel to Princes st and is mostly pubs. George Street runs parallel to Rose street and has loads of expensive bars and spice boys.

In Edinburgh for the week for, staying in Leith.

Anything decent around Leith, or in the centre worthy of a trip. Food, drink, anything else interesting to do? Only really have the evenings off, perhaps breakfast on the Saturday and Sunday though.

Loads of good pubs on Leith Walk and around the shore.The Roseleaf and Kings Wark do good breakfasts.

Royal Yacht Britannia is docked in Leith (if that's your thing - I've never done it).

Bridget Riley exhibition on in town.

Hearts or Hibs might be playing?

You need to go here, for lunch… it’s unreal.

I’ve eaten from the lunch and a la carte menu. The food is fantastic on both but the quality and value of the lunch menu is unbeatable. Well recommended.

Kitchin always a shout down in Leith. I always like Cafe Marlayne on Thistle St.

Good coffee at the little place under the penhaligons shop.
