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.

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…

Delicious monkfish main, and steamed treacle pudding. Wine was very good too, and the ambience & service were excellent.

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.

The menu provides an excellent range of dishes to suit the vast majority of palates and diets. The dishes are freshly-cooked, most appetizing and sufficiently sized to satisfy most appetites. Service is attentive, but not intrusive and the ambience, particularly on a summer evening, is delightful.

A very good experience with a warm welcome and excellent service. The food is all home cooked and really made our day. We visited almost two years ago but the pandemic stopped us going until this visit, and the quality and ambiance were still as good as ever. We shall recommend to all our friends.

We went to celebrate my daughter’s graduation.

We had a nice evening. Service was good, food was delicious , though I may have been expecting slightly more refinement. The tomato salad, for example, was just too big as a starter.

But generally very good. Recommended.

Fab food and service. One of the party was allergic to dairy and they adapted the menu accordingly. Very unusual for places to do this to the extent that they did and much appreciated.
