Looking for a late-ish evening of live music? We wandered into this unassuming, warm, and cozy pub one evening and were pleasantly engaged in lovely and foot-stomping Scottish (and Irish) music. Ensign Ewart is a 2 minute walk down the Royal Mile and a wonderful...More
Visited today and found it to be a great find. Lovely soup of the day with a bacon and brie sandwich,and a ploughman's too. Service was very quick, place was busy with a good atmosphere, and the staff were friendly. Price of food and drinks...More
This place is worth a visit eventhough it is in the middle of the tourist trap (royal mile). Friendly service and wonderful soup of the day! I liked the bread as well, but my friend thought it was a bit on the dry side. An...More
1st of All: Try one or more (we tried 2) of the Gin flights. It was such a fun way to try a whole bunch of different gins!
The live music was beautiful and changed every night! A calm way to end a busy day...More
We visited this cozy pub twice during our visit to Edinburgh.Two musicians provide live acoustic Scottish music (accordion and fiddle) nightly, roughly 9 pm to midnight. The place is small so it's best suited to couples or small groups rather than a night out with...More

Came across this lovely cosy little pub on our first night. What a find - staff were friendly and helpful guiding hubby to a nice local brew - or 3 and an amazing selection of gins. We ate here and the food was excellent. Far...More
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
