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.

    Excellent food, service and a little gem of a restaurant. Friendly staff and food was of excellent quality. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars for service was that I felt perhaps they were one waiter too Light but that’s only a very, very minor blemish in what was otherwise a thoroughly excellent evening. Well worth a visit.

    We visit The Beehive several times a year and it has always been one of our favourites but our visit last Saturday was a disappointment. The menu has less appeal and we found it difficult to choose both starter course and mains. Overall the food was OK and the service excellent but at £155 for two it leaves us with doubts about a follow up visit.

    Not a cheap night out ( we did go quite large on wine) but taking that aside the bill would have been £170. Quite heavy for a a pub meal - two people, two courses. That said this isn't normal pub fare - Is it as good as Kerridge in Marlow? It's not far away but in this author's humble opinion not quite but still outstanding.

    Absolutely fantastic food in a lovely, restful dining room. We had the renowned rabbit ravioli - lovely. And monkfish, in a beautiful sauce. and gorgeous puddings. It's a steep price to pay BUT places producing dishes of this very high quality are sadly rare, and - we've paid almost as much elsewhere, for a great deal less! Service is excellent and very professional - great to see the attention paid to such things as renewing used napkins, and topping up glasses ... staff keep a vigilant eye on the tables and discreetly anticipate diner's needs. We will certainly be back and before long!

    A comfortable gastro pub in an attractive setting with an interesting menu. Service was OK but the tasty appetiser and home made bread only arrived after the starter. The wine list was short but not overpriced and 1/2 bottle carafes are a good option. The main problem was the food prices which we felt were excessive for a pub setting and the standard provided. £34 for a fish dish with potatoes or vegetables at £6.50 extra. Puddings were £10+. We have paid significantly less in Michelin star restaurants. In summary good food but too expensive.

    We had the most delicious lunch - fresh fish perfectly cooked in the lightest of batters - proper chips - and real peas - mushed ! The dessert was equally good. The staff were very helpful and efficient. I can't wait to make a return visit.

    Great service & food. Very expensive + 12.5% service charge - but understandable given the painful time the gastropub industry is going through. Keep going Beehive!! Gerry 8 July 2022

    The snacks were amazing, best salmon dish I’ve had. The mains were quite a let down, over cooked roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. The service got two out of four meals incorrect, please just write down orders to avoid this happening. I’m allergic to peanuts and received a meal with peanuts in that I did not order. We also had glasses of wine and a beer added to our bill without us ever ordering wine or that specific beer. The Yuzu margarita was the best margarita I’ve ever had and watching the cricket match was also an added bonus. I would like to go back again but maybe on a day when it’s less busy so there aren’t so many mistakes.

    Higher quality food in this Gastropub. The rabbit ravioli alone is a reason to visit. Inevitably prices have risen post Covid making a meal here on the more expensive side but the quality makes it worth paying more in my opinion. Somewhere more for a special lunch/ meal than everyday

    Booked a table for my wife and I and was not disappointed the food was very good and well cooked and beautifully presented. I would say that it is good value but do not expect a cheap night out if you have not been before. The whole experience for us was very enjoyable and we would definitely return and recommend the Beehive to other patrons.

    I was looking forward to our visit but was very disappointed. Firstly, it took nearly an hour for our mains to arrive. I had a Thai inspired fish dish that had no Thai flavours, it was basically just a piece of fish with a salty green sauce and a few tiny shrimps, for £34! And then they add 12.5% for service. Felt sorry for the waiter who was nice enough but we heard several tables complaining about the wait and the food.

    For what's it worth - it is too expensive given the quality and quantity of food. This was my second visit and I found it a little wanting. The waitress serving us looked half miserable. I also found it too loud with people speaking louder and louder just to get heard (note to boomers - wear your earpieces). For a non-London restaurant and in a pub, it's too pricey. We were 4 people of which 1 was a child. We had 1 starter and 2 alcoholic drinks (from 6 drinks). In total £223. The bread was pretty dire - it was essentially burnt toast. Given that price expectations are higher and this restaurant did not deliver. The online menu on their website is also out of date and does not reflect the price increases which have obviously gone up to match the high inflation.
