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

Good ok. Had the seafood gyro. One prawn.one piece of calamari, 3 small pieces of salmon and a thick flatbread. (To fill you up) Waitress brought the food and asked us if we wanted any sauces, we said mayo only to realise that they charged £1.50 for a little pot of mayo containing less than a teaspoon full of mayo. This is a pub, in Stretford, nothing more, so why?

I booked a table no problem. Had a choice to eat inside or out. Very friendly and helpful staff. The service was good and food was amazing. Served on a hot plate meant the food stayed hot to the last mouthful 👍. Only one miner hiccup they ran out out of skimmed and semi skimmed milk which meant I couldn't have a skinny latte. But they made up for it by giving my friend a free glass of prosecco for her birthday. Lovely place to dine, food amazing a f lovely staff 😊

Gets very loud on a Friday/Saturday but that’s fine if that’s what you’re after. Service was great. Drinks were good. I would recommend the zombie!
