The Beehive in White Waltham, overlooking the village cricket ground and a gentle Berkshire landscape, is something of an institution in these parts. The Beehive is a wonderful village pub in the beautiful village of White Waltham; it has a huge reputation in the local area and is a favourite local for many in the village. At the Beehive we aim to protect this reputation, we aim to create a delicious seasonal menu. Throughout the year we want the menu to represent Britain and our wonderful produce. Dishes that are heart warming, affordable and packed full of flavour.

    Absolutely outstanding food, and lovely friendly service. Definitely returning, and their sister restaurant The Crown in Burchetts Green is on the list for a visit.

    Really nice pub with really good food. The Welsh rarebit was delicious as was the roast beef although it wasn’t very hot. The desserts were amazing. I think being seated in the restaurant is an advantage and we were sat part in the bar part in the restaurant

    Food was excellent and hard to fault at all. The rabbit lasagne and monkfish in particular were stand out. Great cocktails and short, but good wine list. Our server was very good, but she was rushed and seemed to be trying to do everything without support from the rest of the team and her manager which left a few gaps. Could and should be better for where this place prices itself. Overall, it’s a lovely, if pricey, place with amazing food, just needs to sharpen up on the service side of things.

    Warm welcome for supper with friends at the Beehive. Our waitress was super friendly and efficient. Delicious gnocchi for mains and plum soufflé for dessert. Always love a meal here. Laid back but feels special every time.

    The Beehive is a gastro pub and is considerably more expensive than the average. One therefore expects something very special. The menu was quite limited and I couldn't find any lamb as a main course. The courses were beautifully presented but the food was mildly disappointing. Pork a bit dense and difficult to cut; chateaubriand not the tenderest but quite flavoursome; monkfish nothing special. The triple cooked chips and the buttered green veg as (expensive) side dishes were fairly mingy quantities and suitable for only one person really. The bottle of Spanish red wine was £46 and I wouldn't pay more than £12 for it in a wine shop. A very pleasant seating area but, as so often encountered, noisy people on tables close by made conversation quite difficult. So, all in all, at £95 per head all-in I wouldn't be in a hurry to return unless someone else was paying.

    The food was very poor and mean with the portions. Its an expensive restaurant with nothing to back it up. The Gazpacho was tasteless and chicken liver parfait was tasty but way to small with soft bread. The main courses were really poor. The Gnocchi tasted old and sour. The monkfish was over cooked with tempura prawns that had no batter coating. The vegetables with the fish was mush and spicy sauce that tasted nothing of Makhani. The triple cooked chips were bought in frozen chips that caterers can buy. They were not even close to being triple cooked chips. The desserts were good. Service although friendly was very slow. It took nearly half an hour for our order to be taken. This is a very poor restaurant.

    We have been here several times. We always look forward to the wonderful food for a top chef. However this time we were a little disappointed by the available menu selection. There 3 fish dishes and one very expensive stake option or a game meat. Not a great choice on this occasion. The food we had was exquisite and beautifully presented it’s just there was to much fish.

    The food was very good and the front of house staff very pleasant. As it was hot there was an offer to open the front windows. We were a little surprised to hear so many old planes using the local aerodrome but it did not detract significantly from an enjoyable lunch.

    We had a lovely evening but found the menu too “ fishy” and one of the party, who doesn’t eat fish, really struggled to find something they fancied. The food we had was excellent and service very good. However we found it very expensive for what we had. £48 for Chateaubriand and £45 for Grouse! Ended up paying just under £100 per head.
