Ye Olde Beehive Inne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Visited Ye Olde Bee Hive on two occasions in our week's stay on holiday in Runswick Bay.
On our first visit the Lobster dish we both ordered was exceptionally good. The lobster was boiled, served with delicious chips, salad and mayonaisse. For deserts we had the largest eton Mess in England, which was very nice, I must say along with homemade blueberry bread and butter pudding served with ice cream. (We were told Custard is never available!) However the Bread and Butter pudding was also very nice.
Although we had previously reserved a table, on arrival we were told the restaurant would not be opening this evenng and advised to take a seat in the bar area, we didn' think this was a problem.
Second Visit- My husband rang the Bee Hive to confirm if Lobster would be on the menu and also to reserve a table. On arrival we were told the restaurent would not be opening and advised to take a seat in the busy bar area, again becoming used to the format, this was not a problem. With the drinks order, due to confirming earlier that Lobsters were on the menu my husband went on to order the lobsters which we intended to enjoy once again as we had done earlier in the week at our previous visit.
We were told that the chef could prepare any dish, however ot turned out all the lobsters being served that evening were thermidored, with no choice otherwise because they had already been prepared??
The lobster was coated in a plain flour based sauce, which actually spoilt the lobster.
Having finished the main course, we requested the dessert menu. The waitress came back and advised us along with another couple who were staying at the Bee hive, there were NO DESSERTS tonight ??
There was a family enjoying the evening due to it being one of the childrens birthdays, again NO DESSERTS?? In fact when they placed their food order, one of the children asked for some sausages, only to be told, there wasn't any after being told there was??

Basically if you do what you are told when you arrive at this place, you are fine, the hospitality is basically down to the host showcasing his clever sarcastic humour in front of the customers, trying to be funny!!!

A big warm welcome from Mandy & Keith on our arrival and the offer of tea/coffee much appreciated as we stepped through the door into calm and tranquility. A great place to unwind and enjoy fantastic food and hospitality. Nothing is too much trouble and all your needs are catered for. A beautiful room large but cosy and the sound of silence was amazing. Situated in a lovely location with so much to see and do just a couple of miles along the road. We can't wait to return and would recommend this to all and if you're just passing through stop for a meal, beautiful home cooked food, very generous portions and all locally sourced. A real hidden gem!

We had a wonderful welcome at the Ye Olde Beehive Inne in June. The photographs don't do this place justice a wonderful pub with a great atmosphere full of history. Excellent local food great selection. The landlord and lady were warm and welcoming couldn't do enough for us. This is one of those rare spots which truly feels like your coming home. Comfortable and romantic. We shall definitely be back in August can't wait!

We booked mid june and on arrival we were greeted with a lovely old rustic building, brimming with colour from the floral displays outside. We met the landlady Mandy and landlord Keith inside where we were offered a cup of tea. Myself and my partner were taken aback by the hospitality and thoughfulness that i think you can only get from a place like this, if its a holiday inn or a travel lodge that extra detail isnt there and i got the sense that it was more than just a business with the owners.
A few examples i can say is that they had bought a bath toy for our two year old prior to our arrival and they washed his comfort teddys for us, one night when he was restless he nearly fell asleep on Mandys knee while she was giving him a cuddle so we could enjoy our meal. Nothing is too much trouble.
The room we were staying in was immaculately decorated with views over the fields, the place itself is on very quite road with minimal traffic even on the busiest days. The bathroom was exceptional with a lovely hot power shower and a huge bath.
On a night Keith cracked us up with his stories and his wide knowledge of the local area. The food is stunning, all home cooked from local suppliers and massive portions, the Whitby plaice i ordered was really a Tiger shark in disguise.
I cant fault our stay in anyway (apart from the weather) and the people who leave negative comments on here are on another planet or there are two Beehive Inns in Whitby, im not sure.
Dont let these people get you down guys, you made our stay special, we loved every minute and we will definately be back.

A wholehearted welcome from Keith and Mandy set the tone for our weekend. Clean, cosy and comfortable rooms. Excellent food and drink. Keith is one of those old fashioned landlords who does his best to make sure his guests get the best from their time in the area. When considering staying here it is important to remember the building is a working pub, several hundred years old. Not the place for you if you prefer modern, soulless chain hotels, but we will return.
