A long term institution in Edinburgh, Milnes is located on both the bustling Hanover Street and the pretty Rose Street in the New Town. With both street level and basement access you really can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Dating back to 1910 when London & Milnes spirit merchants opened the business evolved before becoming a fully-fledged public house in the 1950’s. Milnes has played it’s part in literary history too: The 20th century Scottish literary renaissance was pioneered by Hugh MacDiarmid who engaged in lively political and poetic debate with the likes of Sydney Goodsir Smith, Sorley MacLean and Norman MacCaig. Their discussions took place in a room in the Milnes that later became hailed as the ‘Little Kremlin’ and is still there to this day.
