SquareMeal Review of The Beehive - Crawford Street

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 leaves to make it worthwhile while daughter's fish 'n chips was deemed “fabulous” with mushy peas “just the right side of mushiness”! Her boyfriend's beef burger with pancetta, cheddar cheese & fried egg again with hand cut skin on chunky chips with both burgers being served in classy brioche type buns. I couldn't fault this place – great buzz, great food and waitress Maria made it all go with a smile…just wish we could have stayed longer!!!

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!
