Toby Carvery, Edinburgh

The Balm Well in Liberton was apparently visited by James VI and people from across the Continent were, we understand, drawn to the healing well which lies on the outskirts of Scotland’s Capital city.

It is situated in the leafy grounds of the popular Toby Carvery restaurant just off Howden Hall Road and the oily substance which floated on top of the water was believed to have curative powers for skin diseases.

I did not get as far as the well as I craved a thirst-quenching liquid refreshment on a warm, sunny day in August.

The pump clips I noted on entry were all of chemical beer so I plumped for a Guinness, the dark Irish dry stout is consistent and is one of the most successful beer brands worldwide.

It went down well particularly as we found one of the many seats in the spacious beer garden.

The carvery is near a busy road but we did not hear traffic noise, a major plus, and the food on the carvery looked good, but we did not have the time.

However, we are tempted to make a speedy return.
