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.

Fantastic meal. We all enjoyed everything we had. The venison dish was probably one of the best I've ever tasted. Delicious.

Amazing food in a beautiful setting. Only slightly spoilt by the dozens of flies and wasps that attacked our food. We will be back.

Wonderful atmosphere. The food and service was excellent. Location is idyllic facing the cricket pitch. Tablea well spaced. You are left to enjoy your food and chat. You are not hurried but are able to relax. I would highly recommend the Beehive.

The food & service at the Beehive is always lovely. The rabbit lasagne was the highlight, so delicious. The venison was beautiful but nearer blue than rare in parts but thats a question of preference. I‘d eat the gooseberry & green gauge crumble again and again. Great treat for a Sunday lunch.

Overall we had a nice meal and the staff as always are very helpful and friendly but, we have had better food there on previous visits. It wasn’t the normal standard for the price we paid. Hopefully it will be next time we go.

Our first post lock-down restaurant meal and it was a perfect Sunday Roast. Three courses of Sunday roast that were all high quality produce, beautifully cooked and plentiful..... and I am both a food snob and very greedy!!

Our first AC (After Covid) venture out with friends for a restaurant meal and drinks.
All went very well, Dom and his team made us welcome, and have maintained their high standards after what must have been a very difficult few months during lockdown.
We look forward to returning in the near future.

Our first meal on the first day of restaurant reopenings since lockdown. All was a bit tentative as service staff and diners alike adjusted to the new normal. The food was up to the pre-lockdown high standards we’ve come to expect and service was particularly well performed in respect of social distancing guidelines.

This was the first day after lockdown, and clearly everyone was a little nervous as to how it would go.
We had eaten here before and as before the food was very tasty. We would like to offer a word of appreciation for the professional attitude and pleasant atmosphere that the staff had created. Needless to say that we will return, and wish the staff all the best for this difficult period.

Spur of the moment decision to eat out, was very quiet but then it is odd times, food not bad at all but relatively high price for just above pub standard food, mat well revisit but a little bit soulless.

The welcome was warm - the soup (artichoke) delicious - the main course ok but not exceptional and the soufflé was yummy - though I feel the ice cream took away from the delight of the soufflé - not rich enough and when melted and reduced the quality of the soufflé. The service was excellent and the overall experience was good. I feel this venue has yet to find it’s true identity but it certainly has many of the ingredients which make a restaurant a must go to destination.

Food was generally good. Of 5 diners most were happy.
But I had the Beetroot and goats cheese tart to start and the pastry was a under done. For my main course I had the Chicken and Ham pie, but this was only a very thin pastry lid over a ceramic dish (I prefer a full pastry pie) and the filling was more like a watery stew than a pie filling. so somewhat disappointed this time around (our forth visit)

What an amazing pub. The menu is fantastic. Really good choice. Stylish but not pretentious. But, it is the quality which really makes this place special. This is actually worth travelling to eat at. We came up from London because we were visiting someone local but I would actually make the effort just for the food. These really were the best chips I have ever eaten. The service was great. Discreet but not too intrusive. The pub is lovely. This was a really surprising treat.
