71-73 York Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3JD 0131 557 9539
You will find The Conan Doyle in Edinburgh within a short stroll of Picardy Place, Cathedral Lane and Queens Street - however you won't find another like it.
Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.
Located close to the pub is Picardy Place, where the pub's namesake, the great author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, was born on 22nd May 1859. Today, an over life-sized bronze statue of Conan Doyle's greatest creation, Sherlock Holmes, stands opposite his birthplace. The most famous fictional detective is portrayed in meditation on the death of his author.
Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer everything you’d expect to find on any respectable, British pub menu, and so much more besides. Boasting an array of delicious sharers, through to classic main dishes, and succulent burgers, there’s a selection to suit every appetite.
The Conan Doyle is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of iconic and great British pubs — held in the highest of regards for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
We don’t have a pub garden but at The Conan Doyle we do have a small urban outdoor space for you to enjoy a drink, some food and a great atmosphere.
In some places we may need to be flexible with our opening hours. Please check before you visit by heading to the The Conan Doyle Facebook page.
