About 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.

Golden Bee - The Broadmoor Ratings and Reviews
So overrated! Food was absolutely awful, so over priced for what it was. Ambience grim, dated staff confused didn’t know which table to bring food too. Manager arguing with staff at front desk. Overall disappointing so many better pubs with nice atmosphere and good food in this town.
I am a Colorado Native and my best friend took me here for my go away dinner before I leave to get my Masters in Europe. I have never been here before but it quickly became my favorite restaraunt in all of Colorado. Our server was Caitlin and she took such great care of us; making sure our wine and water never ran out. Have already reccomended this place to anyone who will listen. Keep doing you Golden Bee, you're doing everything right.
Our table for 2 felt like an afterthought. We were against a pillar and the table wasn't big enough for our drinks, dinner plates and the crackers. We asked to have the crackers removed. My chair was hitting against another one and my husband was in the aisle.
Our salad came out with our dinner. Our waitress offered to put our dinner under the heat lamps until we were ready? Honestly, I expected more.
While I realize that it is Christmas time and there were tons of Christmas parties, if don't have the room, don't try and squeeze another table in.
Overall, very disappointing. We will not return.
As always, the Golden Bee staff was great, and the fare was excellent. This is a very fun spot to come to for great English Pub fare, including wonderful fish & chips, as well as for a half yard of ale. The atmosphere is fun. The dress is very casual. Families with small children are welcome.
Enjoy some fried pickles to start, then go for items like a Bee Burger, shephards pie, or shrimp and grits. You can't go wrong with anything here. Enjoy the live piano entertainment, and the joyous vibe of the establishment. Remember that your server will be tossing a textile bee onto you! Have fun!
Beautiful restaurant; could have more authentic English Pub decorations. My main complaint is just with what I ordered. The French Onion soup was the worst I have ever had; too dark and a strong taste that stayed with me all day. Very disappointing since that was all my friend and I ordered. She had about 3 bites of her soup and I ate half of mine, so for the price of $25.00, I definitely do not feel it was worth dining at the Golden Bee.
We had the most wonderful family celebration at the Golden Bee. Great food, great service. My only problem with the evening was the fact there is no cell service down there and we had a situation arise where others were trying to get a hold of us and could not.
One of the hostesses did not greet us very well. She assumed we hadn't made a reservation without giving us a second look. Another hostess then took care of us after we said we had made a reservation. We thought the food was very average for the price, the burger was undercooked. Our server was very friendly, however, but we probably will not be back.
Arrived in advance of our reservation time however table was not ready for nearly a half hour following our reservation time Food was average and cooled down upon serving. In their defense I know it is difficult to serve a large table timely. Overall it was a nice evening but I’m not sure I would do it again.
The restaurant is supposed to be an authentic British Pub so one would assume the Fish & Chips would be authentically British in taste and texture as well, but lo and behold, it was awful! The automatic 20 percent service charge added to the bill was also an unpleasant surprise. Disappointing on all levels.
Every person I encountered from start to finish was extremely attentive. Above and beyond to make sure everybody was comfortable and enjoying their experience. I was dining alone and never made feel awkward, which is a rarity - as I dine alone a lot on business. . Thank you for a great experience!
Having been to the Golden Bee before, I was quite disappointed. The music was only OK, at best. The piano player was not up to par (in fact not good at all) and the sing along was mediocre. When I made reservations I mentioned we would be celebrating my birthday. Although he sang happy birthday to another patron and he received a dessert, my birthday was not mentioned nor did I receive a complementary dessert. The service was excellent and the dessert we paid for was delicious; only the entertainment was disappointing.
Do yourself a favor and visit The Golden Bee. First came to this restaurant with my parents, many, many years ago and since then it has been expanded and it always was a favorite special spot but more so now. Really love all the historical pieces --- like sitting in an English or Irish pub. Excellent food - fish and chips top notch - lamb burger excellent. Service was outstanding, friendly and just the right tempo! A Five Star Rating! Can't wait to return.
