The Beehive White Waltham
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
Great food super staff lovely place. Going again for Sunday lunch.
A lovely gastro pub in the Berks countryside. Lovely dining room overlooking the cricket ground, the food & service were excellent and I will not hesitate to return and take friends & family
Very good choice for a relaxing and enjoyable Sunday lunch with its own distinctive character and location opposite the village cricket ground. Great should the sun shine with a pint on the terrace and a match in action.
Very friendly staff. Good service and good food. Ambiance was congenial. Would recommend to friends.
Perfect as ever, cannot fault the food, service or atmosphere!
Was very disappointed on this visit, food and service both poor. A stark contrast to previous visits so not sure what went wrong. Wine was undrinkable and waiter got very snippy about it although another waitress and bar manager agreed the wine was “corked”. Food was ok but nothing great compared to many previous visits. On paying the bill 1 couple on table gave half cash £120 to other couple who wanted to pay whole bill in card. Unfortunately left the cash in the bill which was taken without any comment.... luckily realised mistake and went back for £120 cash, staff seemed surprised we had gone back, surely no one leaves that much for a tip, especially when service charge is included. Left a bad taste that they hadn’t pointed out mistake out?
We have eaten at this restaurant a few times in the last year and experience has generally been very good. However last Saturday one dish , the prawn and salmon starter was lacking in salmon compared with previous experiences. This was politely pointed out to the waitress who advised us that kitchen staff member preparing the food had changed from the usual one. Upon receiving the bill I was disappointed to see that no notice had been taken of the complaint, we were not only expected to pay the full bill but also the additional service charge. This suggested to me that no one had taken any notice of what we had said.
Not impressed at all
My pork was tough other than that a nice place to visit
Pleasant lunch with my wife. We sat at a table beside the large opened bi-fold windows. Excellent idea giving the diners the feel that they are eating outside without having their food blown cold by the wind.
I had fish and chips. The fish batter was a teensy bit oily but the haddock inside was perfect. Triple cooked chips on a par with Tom Kerridge's. My wife had roast Cod with a potato and chorizo broth which was well presented and tasty. Our Greengage Tart was OK but at £7.95 a little pricey.
Wine list is a tad on the expensive side. (fine dining priced wines but not fine dining wines)
However, the overall experience would certainly encourage us to return. Plus it's good to see that Dominic Chapman now has his own place, having eaten his food at The Royal Oak and The Hinds Head and always enjoyed it. (Bring on the Longhorn Chopped Biftek my Son!)
Love this place. This time we had a light lunch of two starters each ....both equally delicious and served with hot rolls...great cooking and lovely ambience.
Loved the food as always. A little bit of a wait between starter and main but food worth the wait. The basked Alaska might pair well with a tart purée to break up the sweet meringue and ice cream.
Fantastic meal with top notch service !
Beautiful setting also ....
Everything cooked to perfection and the homemade bread is awesome !
The only complaint we had was 2 of 4 within our group thought that the food was extremely salty.
Food was excellent and service better than has been on previous occasions.
Michelin star in the offing! Such beautiful food. Very good service.
Birthday celebration for five adults. Great ambience, nice large table, excellent menu . The food was all of a really high quality and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the whole meal. First visit to the Beehive but definitely not the last
Service was very friendly and with a smile from everyone,food was served efficiently,and was very good.
Bland and very expensive cod main course.
All very dull.
Veg charged in addition
Good food in a nice setting
Always a lovely meal at the Beehive
All excellent as ever food lovely great service. Would highly recommend
The food and service were excellent and catered for our dog as well (even though he tried creep under a hedge)
Lovely food, but it took a long time to arrive for a table of 7 for lunch despite the restaurant not being full.
We’ve eaten here several times and have been disappointed on most occasions, but we keep trying as it’s fairly local. This time we were served a bottle of wine which was horrendously corked, only to be told that this was the style of the wine. The second bottle was fine, but if they think the first bottle was ok, I hate to think what the winemaker has been making.
For the prices, you would think they would recognise a badly corked wine at the very least.
Excellent food and service, what’s not to like? Only disappointment was that it’s been on our doorstep for so long and we hadn’t tried it. We’ll be back 😊
Perfect evening as the sun set over the green. But at a crucial point the sun shines directly into many diners eyes. The time will vary each day of course but a blind to pull down briefly would be great.
Excellent food and staff were very helpful advising a vegan we had in our party.
Thanks for a great evening.
Another lovely evening at the Beehive and very much the best place I have found in Maidenhead area. The quality and variety of food is really good and service and value excellent.
Fantastic restaurant overlooking the cricket ground. Great ambiance and well constructed table arrangement. The service was impeccable and the food was even better. Would like to see a couple more things on the menu as there were quite a few fish dishes which was great for me, not so much for my other half.
Overall, a very impressive restaurant. We shall be returning.
Excellent selection on the menu. Steak was cooked perfectly and served with a smile. They also make a great Aperol Spritz.
Excellent Sunday lunch. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Excellent and creative cuisine, delightful staff. Lovely location opposite village cricket pitch.
Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous location- what’s not to love
We arrived on time and got seated. Took a long time to take our order.
Then took a long time for the first course to arrive.
Then took even longer for the main course to arrive.
The steak was very chewy.
Their was obviously a problem in the kitchen.
The dessert arrived quite quickly.
The whole meal took over 2 hours to serve.
Other times it has been very good, but not this time.
Our food was very good and the chocolate fondant I had for dessert was one of the best I have tasted. I thought the main course potion of cod could have been a bit more generous especially given the price. Service was a bit slow on this occasion as I think there was an event on in the pub later that afternoon. The waiters were very helpful, professional and friendly. The restaurant has a light, airy feel and has a lovely outlook with the village green and cricket match clearly visible to diners. Would definitely return as the food was of a very high standard, lovely restaurant and gorgeous village setting.
