Rex Rattus left this review about The Booking Office (JD Wetherspoon)

Guest ales here are £3.10 a pint, which is not particularly cheap by 'spoons standards. But I suppose it's all location, location being on top (literally) of Edinburgh Waverley railway station.

The interior is fairly light as there is a glass roof roughly above the bar counter, and there's also a small outside drinking area at the front, which was highly popular on a warm and sunny day. It was very busy in the general area on the Friday afternoon I visited, perhaps exacerbated by the fact that the Edinburgh Festival was due to kick off the following day.

It's another day, another 'spoons. This one was at least as good as most I've been in.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Booking Office (JD Wetherspoon)

Decent 'spoons housed in the small former eponymous building at the top of taxi road ramp which is larger inside than you might expect from its previous incarnation as a Chinese restaurant. Busy but not overcrowded on this afternoon revisit when the real ale selection from nine of 12 handpumps included a reasonable selection from the Scottish Real Ale festival list, including the Birds & Bees from William Bros (£3.19).

hondo . left this review about The Booking Office (JD Wetherspoon)

Originally the booking office for the train station which then became the parcels office then a bar and then a chinese restaurant. Wetherspoons spent around £1.9 million transforming the site. Quite a plain interior with a replica North British Railway Company mosaic at the entrance. Handy for the train station it has live train departure screens and is across the road from the airport bus terminus.
