White Hart Inn information
A brass plaque outside this pub proclaims: ‘In the White Hart Inn Robert Burns stayed during his last visit to Edinburgh, 1791.’ Claiming to be the city’s oldest pub in continuous use (since 1516), it also hosted William Wordsworth in 1803. Not surprisingly, it’s a traditional, cosy, low-raftered place. It has folk/acoustic music sessions seven nights a week.
