Beehive Inn

The deceptively spacious Beehive Inn has had its drinking licence for over four centuries, existing in its current incarnation since the mid-1800s. It's easy to get lost in speculation about exactly what this little pub has borne witness to (it's hemmed in between the macabre Grassmarket gallows at the front, and the craggy shadow of Edinburgh Castle at the back), so why not do so while chowing down on one of Beehive's traditional pub dishes in the Dining Room?

After all, there's no better way to reminisce about hangings in days of yore than with a plate of a hand-battered fish and chips, or perhaps a British beef pie served with 1730 special pale ale gravy. As far as eating al fresco goes, the impressive split-level terrace has a spectacular view of the Castle and a good smattering of picnic tables – so if you're heading down, fingers crossed for a sliver of sunshine!
