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.

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.

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.

Menu nice, but a bit limited. Perhaps add a healthier fish and chicken option?
Food delicious anyway, nice service, good wine list.
Still trying to work out why an Aperol Spritz costs £9.50!

Our first time at the Beehive and probably our last! We decided on the Beehive due to its location relative to us and the friends we were meeting. We were asked to take up our table, whilst quietly having drinks outside, as there was going to be a rush at 7pm. There was no rush! The food overall was ok but certainly not worth the prices. Our friend ordered the Chicken Pie and it was served very blandly with just a spoonful of mash. No vegetables at all and were told we could order additional veg if required. When paying just under £20 for a Chicken Pie it should at least be worthy of a small amount of veg, if only to add some colour to the plate. The rest of our meals were very ordinary at high prices for what was served and the way the food was presented. All together a pretty poor experience! When the bill was presented it had the optional 12.5% service change, which I chose not to pay as the service was not up to the quality of the restaurant and most certainly not the prices charged! Not what we expected.

We chose from the a la carts menu but we’re overall disappointed. My wife had venison with mash. The mash was almost liquid and not appetising. Our guest and I had fish and chips. Our guest found the chips over cooked and too crispy. All in all not a good experience.

An excellent night out.
The rabbit lasagne and pie are favourites of ours and didn't disappoint.
Great service as always.

The food was great, no doubt. Unfortunately the service was poor in every aspect, borderline miserable staff. I wouldn’t rush back purely because of the experience. Such a shame because the food has been prepared with amazing attention, but clearly not into the service.

Had high hopes as I’d been told the restaurant was lovely so I booked it for my husbands birthday. The place is lovely and the staff were friendly just think it’s very expensive for what it is. Could have got just as good a meal elsewhere for a lot less.

A very enjoyable meal . The pub is located in an attractive spot opposite the cricket field. The food was good and well presented. There was a good range to suit all of our party.
