A hidden jewel below the cobbles of Frederick Street. The Queens Arms prides itself on being a pub for locals and visitors to Edinburgh alike. The Queens Arms is everything a comfortable, quality pub should be, steeped in heritage with a passion for quality.

From home cooked seasonal produce from great Scottish suppliers cooked and served with care, to handpicked cask ales from Scotland’s top independent brewers, a cracking range of malt whiskies, wines, bottled beers and draught lagers, teamed with a house cocktail list – we’ve it all covered! The Queens Arms is an unusual mix of socialising whilst relaxing. The after-work crowd enjoy a well earned pint, this might lead into watching sport and grabbing a midweek bite and The Queens Arms know how to enjoy the weekends!

Leather chesterfields whilst reading the papers is always a treat, or please stop by for an intimate and cosy dinner for two in one of our copper table booths, meet for coffee and enjoy free wifi or pop in to watch Champions League football and all other major sporting events.



We entertain with live sports throughout the week and weekend, with Sky sports and BT sports on our 5 high definition screens, there is no excuse to miss any action as we have it covered. A recognised destination during the 6 Nations fixtures we pour the ales as fast as you guys can order! With a passionate and friendly atmosphere we take great pride on welcoming the competition into Edinburgh and despite the results will always maintain our friendly banter and service. Local rivalry is never a factor!




From when we re-opened in 2010, and soon after; winning DRAM magazines ‘Gastro-Pub of the year’ award, we were determined to bring you simple, fresh and delicious food served in a relaxing environment. We buy from local suppliers and use seasonal produce to create a tempting menu for any occasion, whether it’s a romantic, candle-lit meal for two, or just catching up with the boys for some scran. We have some very exciting plans coming up in the very near future including a refurbishment to our kitchen facility, and working with our chefs to bring you some more fantastic dishes to slaver over.

A vast and exciting range of drinks await you at The Queens. Fancy a crisp and zesty IPA? Or a malty and warming stout? We have a range of over 80 cask ales available to us from some great independent breweries across Scotland eg Inveralmond, Williams Brothers, Stewart Brewing to name but three.
