The Beehive White Waltham
Great place for lunch with friends. The set menu has fair choice and interesting dishes at a very reasonable price. Their beer is still well kept!
All excellent except the beef roast gravy. Was very thin and watery. Really needed a thick deep sauce to tie everything together.
Having looked at the Estrella list of Top 50 then I was really excited to visit the Beehive. I have been to approximately 20 of the Top 50 Gastro Pubs listed. And I guess I was expected top be blown away from a pub ranked 8th.
The experience was all good but not as exceptional I had anticipated. No reason not to attend
A wonderful location, a great country pub with fabulous restaurant and a menu selection that is first class, a regular trip out for us and highly recommended
Arrived early, so had drinks at the bar. Offered menus and led to our table. Surprised to find friends seated opposite, so had a good catch up chat. Ordered the fish pie and mussels. Both were delicious and a good portion size and very tasty.
We decided not to share on puds so I had a delicious pistachio soufflé and my dinner guest had the chocolate fondant.
All polished off with coffee and tea.
A delightful evening meal in great surroundings with discreet staff.
Go and enjoy the experience
Our 3rd time at this wonderful restaurant.
The food and service very special. The food at the Beehive is really, great! Beautifully cooked and lovely in the way it’s presented.
For us it’s worth every penny and always a lovely place to dine
Very good , excellent service. A little more expensive than expected but ultimately worth it.
Location is good, would be great in the summer. We arrived about 30 mins early to have a drink 1st. Proprietor remarked how early we were, although the table was ready. Staff rushed to take drinks order before I'd even put my bag down & 1 of our party wasn't at the table yet! Food good, not amazing for the price. Hard to attract attention of staff after the 1st flush of rapid drinks & menu ordering. Will try it again in summer, away from the busy xmas period.
Great food and wonderful staff, they made it a memorable experience for my fathers 88 birthday
Fantastic as always, had christmas party of 8 and service was amazing and the Party menu food even better. Great wine list too. It’s such a consistently amazing restaurant, you cannot go wrong here.
This was a lovely pub with great atmosphere & good service. I wax a little disappointed with my food because it was just not warm enough when it arrived & my friend & I thought it odd not to offer vegetables that we then had to order as an extra. For a pub meal with one glass of wine, I thought it was over priced .
Don't over expect in terms of the volume of food ( which was good.) My expectation was set by having Sunday lunch there some 18 months ago. I was underwhelmed.
Lovely venue and service, great food and selection - highly recommended.
Posto molto tipico. English pub con cibo ottimo. Personale molto attento e preparato.
From start to finish a great experience, we could not fault the service and the food was outstanding all delivered in very pleasant surrounding and environment, will no doubt be back again and again.
Friendly and efficient service. Light and comfortable ambiance. Excellent food. Would recommend.
The food is fantastic - but what makes the place special is the staff, if only all restaurants could be like this ...
Really enjoyed the parfait ...I had a lovely piece of cod for my main and my partner had the roast pork ...however the roast potatoes and the under cooked vegetables were disappointing...the potatoes had no taste and had a weird smell to them other than that it was ok
Very nice food - great flavour and top quality ingredients . Recommend the venison which was devine
Delightful dining experience. Excellent warm welcome. Food outstanding. Always busy, which is a good sign
Excellent Lunch on Sunday, excellent food and naturally attentive service, all very good and loved the table by the log fire.
Great food. Excellent service. Good choice of wines and by the carafe too. Will be back!
Bit expensive for everyday eating but lovely for informal occasion. Service generally good, but had to wait ages to order as could not attract anyone’s attention & extra wine order requested twice as had been forgotten. Restaurant v busy (Saturday night) and quite noisy.
Great food, lovely staff which made the evening extra special as we made this a venue to meet family we had never met before.. thank you all
staff were lovely food was excellent is a little expencive but sometimes you don't mind if its really good will go back
The food was excellent and the staff coped well with the dairy and gluten intolerance of my two guests. The Viognier was also excellent. The acoustics are not brilliant, loud conversation at adjacent tables was intrusive. I asked for the WiFi code but never got it.
Food fantastic, service questionable, sent food to wrong table, plates delivered to wrong people and facing wrong way. Long wait between courses. Been many times before and will come again.
We had huge expectations but desperately disappointed. We had hoped it was going to become our new favourite out of London gastronomic restaurant. Rabbit lasagne was a highlight but the fish and chips tasted strangely fat free (possibly one of those fat free fryers?) and sadly not better for it! Extremely quiet in the restaurant hence a complete lack of atmosphere. Oh well........
Excellent quality of food , drink and service . Narrow, but varied menu with vegetarian options included
The servers was polite and helpfull , but service was a little slow but it was sunday afternoon and they was very busy . The food was good except roast potatoes was hard as rocks , they shouldnt have left the kitchen especially as thesunday roast was a premium price £20 +
We highly recommend this gastro pub and will definitely go back again.
Stunning food, as always.. Great place for a wedding lunch!!.. 😉
We have been to Beehive before and it was wonderful, however this time even before we manage to sit down and settle the waiter was asking what would we like to eat, one of my friends thought that the waiter was very pushy. Overall we will return, but hopefully it will be better.
Exceptional food, exceptional service, a wonderful evening. Thank you!
Superb food and service in this lovely owner operated pub/restaurant overlooking the quintessential English Cricket Pitch. Very serious cooking from Dom Chapman and team served by a friendly and enthusiastic front of house brigade. As Michelin would say Worth a detour!
Food and service was of a very high quality and delicious however the menu was a little restrictive in options. Ambience was pleasant until later in the evening when a large party arrived - it became difficult to hold a conversation over the table.
Although the waiting staff were very pleasant and professional, I felt a little intimidated into making food choices quite quickly and then had to wait a long time to settle my bill. This may be due to staffing levels on the evening but overall, I would eat here again.
Three of us each ordered different dishes and loved every mouthful. The dining room has a light yet cosy ambiance and the staff were professional. We would go every week if this was our local which I wish it was.
Food was nice but portions very small and therefore very expensive. Service decidedly average
excellent food, great service, overall, it was a wonderful evening. would happily go back and would certainly recommend to friends and family
First time at the Beehive and we thought it was very good all round
