Sat outside to have a drink. Bar wasn’t to busy so there wasn’t a wait at the bar.

Prices are a bit in the expensive side.

The pub did smell strongly of Fish which was a bit off putting when you enter. The food looked alright but looked a bit like standard pub food and nothing special.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback.

With regards to pricing, unfortunately this is something that is outwith our hands, although I will feed this back to the relevant people.
Our food is most definitely pub food, we never deny that. We feel there is nothing wrong with pub food done well, which is exactly what we are striving for.
We do sell a lot of fish and chips, its one of our most popular dishes. I will be sure to make sure we are putting the appropriate measures in place to combat the smell at peak times.

Thanks again for your comments, we hope to see you again in the future.

Vicky.

Went here as part of my stag do celebrations and remember it being very lively with some great music (some old cheesy songs thrown in by the DJ). The staff were very efficient, especially as the place was heaving! Definitely recommend if you're looking for somewhere to go with friends, have a few beers and a dance

A great bar to visit in the grass market on a sunny day. Seating outside at the front and much more in the beer garden.

The Beehive is a cool little spot – they have a rear beer garden, as well as ample outdoor seating out front – this allows you to people watch across the whole of grassmarket. It is actually a pretty large building with three floors, though the action seemed confined to the ground floor. They have a pretty standard bar food menu (though I never ate there)…it is also where the Literary Pub Crawl meets and departs from each evening…The Beehive seems a pretty good choice

Visited this pub twice and ate on both occasions. Food was tasty. Very nice pub with good Guinness. Staff were friendly. Service was a little slow during peak times. Definitely worth a visit.
