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.

Went on a busy Tuesday, but didn't feel rushed. The staff were really attentive, the place is large and open so I didn't feel crammed in. The food was hot, fresh and delicious and the spiced banana soufflé is not to be missed!

Probably the best fish n chips we have had since Scarborough in 2006.
Excellent service, lovely wine and very good puds…nice warm bread rolls to start as well.

We came to The Beehive to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. It was a really lovely evening and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Beehive to friends and family. The food was beautiful, the service was great, and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Thank you Beehive team, we can’t wait to return

Good menu choices, excellent service - friendly & professional.
Would suggest fresh sourdough bread rather than toasted, easier to dip the garlic sauce!

A welcoming dining room with well spaced tables overlooking the garden and cricket pitch. The menu was well considered with something for vegetarians as well as meat lovers. My venison dish was superb and my wife’s lemon sole was perfect.
The service was delightful and we finished our meal with coffee on the sunny terrace.
The only disappointment was the apple tart, I think maybe they had run out of ingredients as the apple content was minimal and it was mainly pastry.

It was a sunny day so we sat outside at a spacious table with shade. Service was good, not over pushy but there when we were ready. Good choice, very well cooked and displayed. Clean, casual but thoughtful decor. We even had local planes in the air doing acrobatics!

There’s a lot of thought and a good deal of love going into this food. Rabbit lasagne should not exist in the real world and yet here it is with humble ingredients elevated to new heights. I don’t remember a better starter….not ever. Grouse and game chips to follow with er…gravy. A Northerners idea of Nirvana. A silky, dark red number to partner perfectly pink grouse and served with a pot of bread sauce as the classy backup. What a gem of a place. Just go…

I’m loathe to write this review as I don’t want to risk not getting a table in the future……. But feel I must.

The Beehive is BRILLIANT. It’s our ‘go to’ restaurant and never lets us down. The food is amazing (the rabbit starter is one of our favourite dishes ever), service is excellent (the young lady that served us yesterday was so cheerful, happy & helpful - a delight) and the location especially in summer opposite the cricket pitch is lovely.

Please visit but no so I can’t get a table though!!

Unfortunately our taxi let us down so we were a little late. This was not an issue for them and all the time the staff were attentive but not overbearing. The food was all delicious and we came away extremely satisfied. Certainly looking forward to going back

Lovely food and drink and a good atmosphere. Did find it a bit loud at times depending on whether other diners were facing in your direction, but overall a great night. We will be back! Really nice to have somewhere not too expensive, but still with nice food, not too far away.

A pleasant experience, good food,friendly and attentive staff, and although quite expensive, definitely worth it. If I am to be picky, the New Zealand Sauvignon could have been served colder, and I was disappointed that although booked through Open Table, the Open Table Dining Cheque recently issued to me was not accepted, and could not be offset against the meal. Overall I would highly recommend the Beehive.
