Had a lovely meal at the beehive, very good value for money and like the fact that if you can't manage your dessert after the plentiful lunch you can take it home in a little plastic tub. Proper traditional pub -it's a bit like going round your grannies for lunch!

Nothing was too much trouble for Alan and Sally, from kindly allowing us to park our motorhome in the carpark overnight, to serving up one of the best pub meals I have had in a very long time. We both had the homemade Steak Pie - huge portion of delicious pie and gravy complimented by perfectly al dente vegetables and... More

Spacious carpark, pretty beer garden with outdoor covered smoking den with wood burner in winter. Inside was old fashioned county pub decor with clean and smart tables. Food was traditional and I cannot complain about portions. Quality meats and well cooked vegetables. Adams Ghost Ship ale was magnificent. One of the best pints around. Staff were very friendly with old... More

I am so pleased to have this gem of a pub within 15 minutes walk. The beer is always just right with Adnams Southwold and Ghostship on tap. Girly lager and Cider are also available. The Landlord and Landlady are always welcoming and friendly. I have never eaten there, but the food looks great when it's served up. Dogs are... More

Took my daughter and her fiance for Sunday lunch without booking. Pub was busy, but the staff checked food availability and fitted us in without drama. A lovely roast beef with trimmings and a perfect pint of Adnams.

We went for Sunday roast and wasn't disappointed. Lovely pub which I'm guessing hasnt changed much for some time but that is part of the appeal. The staff were very friendly and nice. The roast was delicious although massive!!! We really enjoyed our meal here and will 100% be back.

It was my birthday and as it fell on a Sunday my son (who lives in Surrey) said he would like to visit and take my husband and I out to lunch. As this public house had been recommended to us by a friend and we had, in the past, visited regularly decided to give it a try and booked... More
