The Kenilworth

In Rose Street, just a step away from Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle you will find The Kenilworth, a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality. The Kenilworth and its vicinity have a long and interesting history. The present pub replaces an earlier one designed in 1893 by a wine and spirit merchant. It was converted in 1904 and takes its name from a novel by Sir Walter Scott, whose portrait hangs outside. Thistle Street and Rose Street were built originally for the artisans of the New Town. Inside The Kenilworth you will have dinner in the excellent Dining Room, a surprisingly well decorated and relaxed venue that promises to surprise you.
