Welcome to The Beehive newsletter. I cannot believe that we are already in the run up to Christmas! Our Christmas Party Menu is now live on our website and many of you are already planning your Christmas and New Year parties – please book early to avoid disappointment at this busy time of year.
Thanks to the support of our loyal customers, we are in our fourth year at The Beehive and are proud to announce that we have been recognised by the following prestigious guides:
- Dining Pub of the Year for Berkshire in the Good Pub Guide 2019
- The Beehive is awarded 6 points inThe Good Food Guide 2019 (6 = ‘exemplary cookery skills, innovative ideas, impeccable ingredients and an element of excitement’)
- We also maintain our two AA rosettes and a listing in the Michelin guide.
This autumn we have introduced a new Classics Menu, a great value lunch and dinner menu offering 2 courses at £19.95 or 3 courses at £24.95. This menu will change daily and offer some wonderful classic dishes for a quick lunch or good value dinner, available now until the end of November.
The change of season brings a new menu. Autumn brings some wonderful produce. Game is now at its best and we will be offering Roast Partridge with Crab Apple Jelly, Hare Pies, Roast Teal and then Pheasant & Mallard later in the season.
October brings delicious Scallops and the return of Lemon Sole, Cornish Bass and amazing fresh Sprats. We pride ourselves on our fish and with daily deliveries from Looe in Cornwall our menu will always feature some of the best fish our UK waters have to offer.
Wild mushrooms, Cobnuts, Jerusalem Artichokes, Apples, Pears and Blueberries will also feature on our menus. A wonderful time of year in any kitchen.
We are also planning a selection of winter events for you to enjoy. We kick things off on Wednesday 17th October with a Wild Game Dinner and on 12th November we see the return of our Flavours of India dinner.
We are in the process of launching a programme of new lunchtime cookery classes, talks and demonstrations. The first of these will be a Christmas Canape, Party Food & Drinks Masterclass in late Nov/early Dec. Please keep an eye on our website for more details, or contact us.
Please see our website and follow our seasonal menus, events and news on our new masterclass programme.
Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to seeing you soon.
