A word from Golden Bee - The Broadmoor
What was once an authentic 19th century English Pub has become one of The Broadmoor's most vibrant dining destinations. Fantastic pub fare (including The Bee's famous Fish & Chips), yards of ale and plenty of English charm are just a few of the reasons guests enjoy the lively atmosphere at our cheerful British pub.

    My wife and I are comparing restaurants locally for their fish and chips offerings. The GB fish is outstanding with a thin, crispy batter coating on a fresh slice of tender fish served piping hot. The fish is the best we have tried. The chips do not share the same characteristics, however, being cold, limp and, as a consequence, excessively greasy. Come on, world-famous Broadmoor! Get a clue. I could understand how a low budget operation might make this mistake, but it is inexcusable for a Broadmoor venue, even if it is only the Golden Bee. These chips were so bad that I rated down the otherwise excellent service for not rejecting it on our behalf before serving it.

    In our group of six we ordered 5 different menu items and each of us were very pleased with our meals. We came to celebrate a birthday and were assigned to a table which suited this purpose beautifully. A little off to the side, yet able to see around the restaurant and soak up the ambiance.

    As a native to CS, I have always held this establishment in high regard due to its obvious connection to the Broadmoor. I made a reservation for my anniversary and was sad to see we were seated in the bar, next to diners in shorts, out in the middle of the isle, with not even enough room at our table for our cocktails and dinner. Also-our appetizer and dinner came at the same time. After completing our meal, our server walked by 5 times and saw my empty plate...finally another server took our plates. We also had to wait for our check... Overall, very disappointing. While new money pays big tips, its the word of mouth of the locals that keeps you strong in the lean times. Cater to those that live here...not just the rich and elite.

    The experience at the Golden Bee at The Broadmoor was very suburb! From the moment I made the reservation, to our group being seated and throughout the entire stay, the staff at the Bee was on top the whole time. We could not have asked for a better time. It was a bit hot in the corner where we were seated but no other complaints ever crossed our minds.

    If you like English pub food in a real British Pub without going across the pond then this place is for you! Great fish and chips, shepherds pie and yummy beer cheese are all to be had as well as all yards of ale (or smaller). The old time piano player was great and the sing along lots of fun

    This is about as authentic a British pub experience as you will find on this side of the pond. The food is genuine pub fare--which isn't necessarily a plus--and the beer list is authentic as well. The service is cheerful, fun and attentive. The piano player was good and the decor was very interesting. A great place for a low-key dinner at the Broadmoor. The kids menu is OK but not unusual and the staff was great with the kids. Fun place, great bar.

    Dined on 6/22/2014
    When my friend and I chose to sit upstairs, there was one other table of two in the room and the atmosphere was pleasant. However, within minutes of our placing our order, a three-generational family entered loudly and remained loud during the remaining time of our stay. Both the gentlemen and the women talked and laughed at high volume. At one point another group of about six or seven guests came upstairs and appeared to be deciding whether to have lunch in that room or not. Shortly, they left the room, and I believe our inconsiderate table neighbors contributed to their decision to eat elsewhere, hopefully still in the same facility. So, I have no true rating for "noise level" because "energetic" does not suit the negative situation.

    My wife and I received a gift certificate from my visiting brother. We read previous reviews and couldn't believe all the negative replies. My wife had the BLT and I had a hamburger. The BLT was great with thick tasty not to fat bacon and the hamburger was very good also. I waited tables for years in college and Courtney was an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10. Don't believe other people reviews because I don't believe they are accurate and some people you can't ever please. Highly recommend the Golden Bee especially upstairs in the open air and ambiance. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and will definitely eat here again.

    I've been going to the Bee for 30 years. The renovations are excellent but I miss the atmosphere of the original place. Food is good but this is a place for drinking and not necessarily for an excellent meal. The drink prices are steep but the fun of a half or full yard should not be passed up.

    We visited The Golden Bee for our 2nd year anniversary. We LOVED it's unique atmosphere and food choices. I absolutely loved how bees could be found everywhere throughout the restaurant. I would highly recommend this as a great choice for anyone celebrating a special occasion, or who just wants a break from the typical restaurant.

    We ordered the fish and chips.. the fish was slimy and gross. I really didn't want to complain, but the waitress saw I wasn't eating my dinner. She brought me the BLT instead.. .This was good.. but too much fat on my bacon.. I just wasn't impressed by the food, and the drinks were over priced. I would not return or recommend to anyone. Left disappointed.

    The Bee now makes it's famous ruben on a hogue bun. It has gone from the best in the country to the worst. No german potato salad either. I have been visiting the Bee for 5 decades and have never been more disappointed with the menu changes than now. The pot pies and fish and chips have not been changed and are very good.

    We have been to the Golden Bee several times and we always have a good time. They have recently expanded so there is more seating but booking a reservation is almost required now to get in. They have a limited menu but everything on it is excellent from the lamb burger to the chicken pot pie to the pork belly. They have traditional English beer selections and serve it in varying sizes including half yard and yard glasses. I would recommend the Golden Bee but remember to make a reservation. Cheers!

    Frankly, we were shocked that this restaurant stays in business. Their "highly-acclaimed" fish and chips was extremely disappointing -- the batter was soggy, the fish was lukewarm and tasted like dirty water. Bangers and mash were, simply, inedible. The sausage had a terrible taste, almost as though they were spoiled. The salad didn't have dressing, only lemon juice. Adding to the terrible experience was the very poor, disinterested waitperson. It was almost as though she was used to people not eating the food and being unhappy with the restaurant. Save yourself the trouble of going here.

    Do NOT get the BLT. The waitress tried to warn me, but unfortunately I didn't listen. The bacon was very fatty and hard to eat. We were very disappointed with the Golden Bee and expected it would be better considering it is part of the Broadmoor. Would still be a nice place for a pint, but the food was sub par.
