We finally reopened on Wednesday 19th May, and it's great to be back!
You can book a table here - booking isn't essential as we are accepting walk-ins, but we have fewer tables just now due to guidelines, so we advise booking to avoid disappointment.
We will be open 12pm-10pm every day until restrictions relax enough to allow us to open later.
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, live Scottish Folk music, a fresh and locally sourced food menu, and of course, the best in Scottish hospitality!
We are located towards the top end of The Royal Mile. There are steps leading up to the pavement outside the pub, however it is level with the road a little further up towards the castle. Please be aware there is a small step at the entrance to the pub, and a single larger step to enter the back section of the pub once inside. A portable wheelchair ramp is available, please ask a member of staff for assistance if required. We do not currently have accessible toilets. If you require further information please phone 01312257440.
