Ensign Ewart  

The Ensign Ewart is one of the finest pubs in Edinburgh. It is situated at the top of The Lawnmarket in Edinburgh's old town. It is also the nearest pub to Edinburgh Castle. It forms part of a building called Milne's Court, which dates back to 1690. It is believed that there has been a pub on this site since that date and probably even before. The pub is named after Ensign Charles Ewart, "The Hero of the Battle of Waterloo", who captured the French standard, which was in the shape of an Eagle. Thus the symbol of the pub is an Eagle! Food is served all day for the hungry traveler, prices range from ?3 to ?6. There is also a good range of bar snacks and light meals in the evening. There is live folk music in the pub on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The pub has a large selection of Malt Whisky, including Highland, Lowland,Island and Speyside whiskies. It is recommend that you try the Macallan 10 Year Old! There is also a regular 10 Year Old and a cask strength Macallan!! The pub concentrates on selling a range of good quality cask conditioned real ales. There are three regular beers, as well as a guest beer. Beers on at the time were: Deuchars IPA, Caledonian 80/- and Orkney Dark Island. The beer is hand pumped up from the cellar.
