About the Pub
  Sat to one side of the Grassmarket this green pub is a comfortable place to sit on a sunny afternoon people watching whilst sat outside enjoying a drink and a cheap lunch. Most main courses start at 2.99 for scampi and chips and snacks run from 1.50 for a jacket potato. This small bar goes back to the days when men used to go to market wearing swords and pistols. The market and local 'hangings' used to take place down the centre of the 'Grassmarket' which now is a popular place for the weekend revellers to start their night out! Inside the bar area is quite small with a couple of real ales, a good choice of whiskies but no wine selection. There is live music on every Tuesday and football on Wednesdays.

I found the Irish barman to be very pleasant and witty, and also very entertaining - as he got up and sang a few throaty tunes with the performer of the night, Steve Lee. Maybe the previous blogger should release the wild bee from his bonnet and relax. The WHI provides a fantastic and tranquil environment to my friends and I every time we visit.

Not Any More Venturing Into This Bar
I Have frequented this bar on and off for yrs after coming over the short distance from Dalkeith
now residing in Edinburgh i have normally always called in as
i have found it to be a pleasant bar with pleasant clientele and bar staff

However one barman with long greasy hair and with an irish accent certainly has changed my point of view and the view of my friends from Edinburgh

as this man or boy should be aptly named has certainly not got a way with him in manners
in regards serving fellow customers
yes it gets busy at nights especially at wkends but this barman has been seen to be agressive in his manner towards people and has not got a way about him towards customers
and actually i think he has something against Scottish people in general and should not be allowed to work behind any bar
as he is very abrupt and agressive in his manner..certainly he has a twisted personality

I and all my friends wont go back to this bar only because of what we have witnessed with this man behind the bar

The others all were and have always been no problems and get on with their jobs and ok at it
but this bloke as mentioned from Ireland has no way about him for working at this type of work whatsoever

And the manager of this bar really if he doesnt want anymore customers to dissapear from venturing into his bar then he'd
be wise to get rid of this
very abrupt bloke before others follow out the door

Ive personally told my friends both male/female whom frequent this bar as i did
and they also are not going back
until this guy has been sent packing.

What a good pub should be like.
The White Hart inn is probably the best pub in Edinburgh. Every time I come through the door I feel as if I have come home. With friendly staff and good beer, what more could you ask for.

I'm visiting Edinburgh from Kuwait where I work as a contract firefighter for the US Gov't. I ended up in here after I got off the plane. It was cold out but nice and warm in the pub. The barmaids were great and served some great food. I'd recomend it to anyone...

DEFINITELY NOT A RUGBY FRIENDLY PUB - AVOID
Most obnoxious pub I have ever had the misfortune to enter. Barmaid refused to serve us because we were wearing beanies. It was a six nations weekend and we were wearing Welsh bobble hats! Our offer to remove them was rejected.

What a pub!!!
It's obviously been a while since your reviewer has been into this little treasure! No television, no bright flashy fruit machine, live folk music five nights a week, it has to be one of the undicovered pub gems of Edinburgh. Everyone should go...go now in fact!
