Forest review Rate it

A hippy vibe pervades this collective-run venue in a former church, with bands playing either in the café-bar area or in the upstairs hall. For sensitive Nick Drake types living out their private 1960s fantasy, it's perfect, and isn't without an unlicensed charm. Much of the fare on offer is underground to the point of near-invisibility, as the out-of-date website generally proves.

Forest cafe was the best place in Edinburgh but it's closed down now - the owner went bankrupt
