Three of us came in for bottomless brunch on a Saturday afternoon. I had attended this once before with my boyfriend and had promised to take my two friends this time. It was fairly quiet and I think we were the only ones on the bottomless which is crazy because it's such a good deal! The food was lovely, we had 3 different dishes and all were excellent. My vegan option was really nice. Lots of pornstar martinis, as well as some prosecco. The 90 minutes goes quite quickly but the staff were good and kept us topped up. We stayed for a few hours after as it is a really nice chilled out place; great for a catch-up with friends. Will be back again, thank you!

Had a great meal as we have had before. It was plentiful and very very tasty. The atmosphere was fantastic so much so that we stayed for four hours and did the quiz which is not for the faint hearted. Thanks to Chris (forgive me if wrong) and staff for a great night.

Our first time but defo won’t be our last.
Sunday roast was lovely, well cooked, plenty of meat and a varied assortment of trimmings, we didn’t need to order any extra sides the selection we were given as standard was plenty.
The staff were very careful to accommodate a food allergy, ensuring they understood exactly the allergy in question. We did have an issue with our bill when drinks from another party had been added by accident. This was resolved and the manager handled it well. Mistakes do happen but it’s how you rectify them which matters so well done to The Hive, we look forward to returning very soon.

Venue was nice and spacious and we were seated right away. Board games were a great way to educate the kids while we waited for food. Only issue was the music was far to loud but the staff did turn it down when asked.

Lovely evening meal. Food was fab. I ordered the prawn & chilli starter with fries as a main meal and devoured it. Just the right portion size for me. Was Abba night so loud music but we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thank you

Great food and service as ever. Staff very kind to our kids and plenty of colouring and games to keep them entertained. We were driving but the cocktails looked brilliant too - and half drive in happy hour (4-7). Highly recommended!

Third visit to watch the football - great service and atmosphere. Just gutted that they ran out of steak.
It was a reduced match day menu, and I’m not a fan of burgers or chicken wings.

Lovely place staff great but was a little disappointed with the food. Tasted great but we ordered a salad starter but paid extra for the large main version which to be honest we thought it was the starter size and had to check! Otherwise tasted great but portion size bit poor for the price especially when you had to pay more for adding extra on it such as chicken prawns etc otherwise was just a salad.

Highly recommend the hive, we have regularly visited and have always enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere! We tried the bottomless brunch which really was amazing, staff were attentive and service was brilliant! We shared between ourselves and the portions were big so got to try a few different items!! Some of the best cocktails in Manchester and was welcomed that there was no alcohol alternatives on the menu … the hive really is the best addition to Stretford we have had in a long time!! Thank you Chris and the team :)

Had Sunday lunch here. To be honest I wasn't expecting it to be great, due to bad experiences when dining out in Stretford, in the past. Here, the food was fabulous. I had the lamb and it was cooked beautifully. My friend said the same about the belly pork. Will definitely eat here again and would recommend to my other mates. I'm all for supporting our local eateries as long as the food is worth paying for. This is one on my list.

Had a lovely day of food and drinks with the family. Only negative was the lamb was served rare which was not to our liking and I also made a note when ordering for one meal to have no veg, this was ignored so my dad only had a tiny dinner. Aside from that it was great. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and a fun quiz to end the night
