The Ensign Ewart
Traditional Scottish Bar
The Ensign Ewart is the nearest pub to Edinburgh Castle, Scotland's premier tourist attraction. The Ensign offers a huge amount of character in a building which in part (the cellars) can be dated back to 1603, and which has stood on Lawnmarket (one of the differently named streets that together make up the "Royal Mile") resembling its current form since 1690.
Real Ales and Malt Whiskys
Smokey, smooth and everything inbetween, our extensive range of malt whiskys are not to be missed. Enjoy one of our hugely popular traditional ales or indulge in a cold lager. We have ciders, a fine selection of wine, spirits and a host of soft drinks
The location of the Ensign Ewart and its history have helped us become very popular with visitors to Edinburgh. Famous visitors include the President of Azerbaijan and Simon Pegg! It says much for the pub that it also continues to attract regulars from the local community.
