We are thrilled to announce that The Beehive has moved up to the number 7 spot on Estrella’s Top 50 Gastropubs in the UK!
When Dom Chapman revealed long-awaited plans to open his own pub after a career stunning diners and critics alike with his lavish cooking, expectations were high. It’s fair to say Chapman and his team at the Beehive have exceeded them.
The Beehive is nestled in the tiny village of White Waltham, a brief drive from Maidenhead (and a stone’s throw from a few fellow Top 50 Gastropubs).
The pub is a true labour of love, with its elegant three-course dinners. It is a gastropub equally ideal for a long, sun-drenched afternoon lounge in the garden as it is for a cosy, boozy winter night nestled in its traditional bar.
Menu highlights include wild mushroom, stilton and onion and red pepper tart with dandelion salad; lasagne of wild rabbit with wood blewits and chervil; roast English partridge with chipolata sausage, bread sauce, game chips and gravy; and lemon drizzle cake with raspberries and yoghurt ice cream.
The Beehive also offers a wide selection of cask ales and draught beers as well as an extensive wine list showcasing a wide variety of regions and vintages.
Head chef and owner Dominic Chapman was a contestant on BBC 2’s Great British Menu and turned heads shortly after launching the Beehive with his simple modern dishes.
