Shared fish platter for two absolutely excellent. The ambience is fantastic. I was so happy to find that the Beehive is as good as it was when I was a kid. We emigrated quite a while ago so I was so happy to revisit & find the standards so high still.

Great food, a fun place for kids to play in the secret garden play area, and a good environment. Sometimes feels a bit over cosy inside, but definitely my favourite place to go with the family.

The Beehive is a very good bar whether its a meal or just a drink you are after. I have been for both and have never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly, polite and efficient. The menu itself has adequate choice, as has the bar. Serving a reasonable selection of well kept real ale. I have no complaints with... More

We were a small works party of 11 having christmas lunch at this venue. We were able to forgive the fact they were running 30 minutes late due to a) they were honest about this and b) the meal was faultless! The portions of the main Turkey dinner was HUGE!! There was not a single negative that I could point... More

Sharing seafood platter, good variety and very tasty, easily adequate for three of us even without chips. With chips would have left no room for mains! Steak pie packed with tender meat, good pastry, more veg than we could handle. Confit of duck leg "beautiful". Very pleasant staff, three real ales on offer, and just enough tasteful Christmas decor to... More

Booked a table for 6 for a family Christmas lunch - 3 generations - so you need to please everyone ;) You did!!! The food was excellent - we were all served at the same time - no waiting around while some-one's dish is not ready etc so that was a good start! Huge portions that were thoroughly enjoyed, sticky...

Having been to a big Xmas fair and being very nearly knackered we decided not to go home and make lunch but to visit the Beehive, we were not disappointed. It was warm and cosy, we found a table easily, my wife had a ham hock on brioche from the light lunches she was impressed, it was very tasty. I... More
