The Beehive

Squaremeal Review of The Beehive ?

Run as a boozer since 1884, this Marylebone watering hole now leads something of a double life under the stewardship of owner/restaurateur Claudio Pulze. “Rough drinkers” mingle with “posh-ish lunchers” in a dark room with flock wallpaper, green banquettes, shelves laden with maritime knick-knacks and an unusual curved corner bar. Food-wise, the international menu throws up the odd surprise such as marinated salmon with red chicory and carasau (Sardinian flatbread) alongside more obvious gastropub choices including salads, steaks and a chorizo burger with crispy onion rings, Red Leicester cheese and hand-cut skin-on fries. Blackboard specials are not quite the norm, but not too scary either – think chicken paillard with radish salad. Drinkers satisfy their cravings with Meantime brews on tap (Pilsner, LPA, stout), bottles of cerveza, sherry and some enterprising wines, including exclusive Eiswein.

What a fabulous surprise! We arrived expecting nothing more than your usual pub-grub but left feeling very pleased with ourselves for having found such a little gem! Well kept draught bitter (Truman's Best) a very decent selection of wines and well-priced food served with a great smile made for a very fun evening. My lamb and chorizo burger was cooked just how I asked and delicious, served with some mouthwatering hand cut skin on chunky chips, crispy onion rings, red Leicester cheese and enough mixed...

We chose this pub for a Thursday evening get together for 5 girls as it was the most centrally located for all. The pub was packed with a great atmosphere, if slightly tired interior. We were late giving our orders whilst waiting for a friend but were kept amused with good red wine and bar snacks and attentive staff checking in on us, asking if we were ready to order. All of our dishes were lovely, great colours and flavours – perfect pub grub.

I stumbled across this rare place while having a catch up with some friends. It had a great vibe as soon as we walked in. The menu wasn't what we were expecting with lots of tempting choices. The price was great, the service was great and the food was great what more can I say! We will be back!

Meeting friends on a bank holiday can be problematic so after some research, I decided to suggest The Beehive, due to its convenient location for all. I knew it would be a little left field, and indeed it was. Good pub classics alongside Italian inspired food was let down by a strange format. I really enjoyed my halloumi and pesto starter, and tucked in to the special of pan-fried skate with new potatoes, green beans and salsa Verde. Both courses were a feast for the senses. However, unused gastro...

Just got back from lunch at the Beehive and what an absolute disappointment. It is up there with my worst five meals of all time. My friend and I didn't fancy the whole “pub grub” fayre and so ordered some starters to share instead. The Grilled Halloumi on bruschetta consisted of a deep friend piece of rubbery cheese plonked on some toasted brown bread, slathered in mayonaise (!) and one slice of dry tomato with some pesto from a jar squiggled around the plate for effect. I'm sorry, but has the chef...
