Welcome to The White Hart Inn, Edinburgh's most ancient tavern. Founded in 1516, The White Hart is named after the rarest of all highland creatures, which can be spotted sometimes no more than once in a century.It was used as a heraldic symbol in the 14th centuary by King Richard II, and for almost five hundred years has welcomed travellers through these doors. So why not follow in the footsteps of Oliver Cromwell, William Wordsworth and Robert Burns and come visit us for some traditional scottish food and drink, or come and see one of our live musicians which we have every night from 9pm.
