The White Horse has been fully refurbished by its owners, and is located towards the bottom end of the Royal Mile, on Cannongate. The venue is a mixture of traditional Edinburgh bar and stylish modern bistro – popular with locals and tourists alike. It’s so close to the main stretch of the Royal Mile, it’s an easy venue to find just walking straight down the hill from the Fringe shop – and there’s a wide selection of free shows that start from mid-afternoon – before that come in and have lunch!
