Welcome to The Ensign Ewart Pub, on Edinburgh's Royal Mile.
The highest pub in Edinburgh, and the closest to Edinburgh Castle, The Ensign Ewart has a rich history dating back to 1680, when the pub was first established on it's current site. It has changed a bit since then, but it still retains much of its original charm, and always has a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
We have LOCAL Cask Ales, a dynamic and ever changing whisky list, a large selection of Scottish gins, live music, a fresh and locally sourced food menu, and of course, the best in Scottish hospitality!
Our current opening hours are 12pm-10pm Monday - Sunday.
Food is served until 9pm.
We have an extensive takeaway menu available, including our full whisky list available to takeaway as individual drams.
