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.

Absolutely fantastic! The service, food and ambience were faultless and we couldn’t have asked for better. We were a party of four celebrating a wedding anniversary and we all had different starters, mains and desserts. All were amazing and there were clean plates throughout. Thank you to the brilliant staff who couldn’t have done more. We will be back!

The food and service was excellent. Attentive, informative but not intrusive. The food was absolutely delicious.
The only negative was that the pub area where you can usually sit and have drinks before or after the meal, was not available, occupied by diners. Hence the only option was to hope the table was ready and go directly to that. I do hope that The Bee Hive keeps a pub area to have a drink before the meal as this has always made it overall a lovely experience.

Despite this it was a lovely meal (though definitely costly) in a lovely environment.

Excellent food and good service. Had long wait to order though and consequently ate too late for me to fully enjoy. Had tried to move booking earlier and failed although there were free tables earlier.

We decided to share a little scotch egg for a small starter and it was amazing, such perfect flavours.
We treated ourselves to the Amazing roast beef which did not disappoint. For dessert I managed to fit in the cheese cake with blueberries and granola and it was so light and tasty. The service felt relaxed, but superb and not rushed in the slightest.

Nicely spaced tables, excellent high quality food, and comfortable and non fussy service offering a selection of adventurous and more conventional options. All dishes all we tried (snails, game, sole and fish and chips were well cooked and presented. Not cheap - we had 2 courses with sides, a bottle of wine and some soft drinks and it came to £50 per head including service. Worth it for special occasions

This was our second visit in 6 weeks. As before it excelled in everything. The interior has a nice calm feel and the tables well spaced. The shortish menu has plenty of enticing dishes, I had the venison with celeriac, spinach and gorgeous mash, quite delicious. The service was charming and relaxed. It’s rare to find such an all round success.

I had booked in advance and received an email to confirm I was attending.
All the serving staff were very friendly.
Good selection on the menu and I had the octopus, halibut and finished with the spiced banana soufflé.
The food was nicely presented and very tasty, with lovely sauces.
Well worth a visit.

The food is always excellent and interesting. The Yorkshire pudding melted in the mouth and the fig tart and honey ice cream were out of this world. Staff always friendly and knowledgeable . We have eaten here several times over the years and the standard never fails. Looking forward to going again
