Yeah, I do like the 9A — much better than that place ever was as the
Holyrood Tavern.  Not sure if you've seen my other mail, but I'm
suggesting it as the place to meet Dave when he's in town next week.

The Cask and Barrel is nice enough, but doesn't do food afaik.  The
Barony serves food, but it's fairly small, and usually mobbed in the
early evenings, so booking would probably be vital.

I'd be OK with either, though, if that's the consensus.  At least you
didn't suggest the Phoenix across the road. :-)

Yeah, not my fave either, though it is conveniently located, at least
from my point of view.  And only about 11 minutes' brisk walk from the
westbound platforms at Waverley.
