The Royal Oak is a real Scottish pub that has made its name as a live music venue. Steeped in history and atmosphere it is only a few minutes walk from the Royal Mile. With a fine tradition of musical entertainment every single night of the week you can hear mainly folk songs with a mix of other acoustic styles. The Royal Oak not only gives visitors the chance to hear some great tunes, but it also acts as a focal point for many of Edinburgh’s traditional musicians.

Mother and Daughter team May and Heather McKenzie have been licensees of the Royal Oak for over 6 years and have won numerous awards during this time.

Most recently the Royal Oak's very own Wee Folk Club, which meets every Sunday, won the very prestigious Trad Music Award 'Folk Club of the Year' 2008.
