It was a clever idea using a double decker bus as the cafe. The sandwiches we had were delicious as was the little pot of honey icecream. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Sadly the harvest flies had just come out and were as annoying as midges though thankfully did not appear to bite. Didn't have time to wander round... More

Called here to get some local honey. A small shop area sells a selection of honey related products including soaps, cards and obviously honey! A number of rooms off the shop have plenty of diagrams, photographs and specific information of great relevance. Also history and pictures of the chain bridge itself, a short walk away. Don't miss the live bee... More

My first return visit here in several years, and once again I'm amazed at how anything so good can be free, considering its a private enterprise. The 'bee museum' remains as fascinating as ever, and there's now both a 'jonque '[ as my mother used to style it ] shop and a cafe in a double-decker bus. I'd already eaten,... More

We went to learn about the bees and see the open hive, but it was much more than that. A fascinating history of bee keeping, a shop selling delicious honey and honey products - the honey cake was delicious. We then discovered the children's playground where my 3 year old grandson had fun, but the highlight of our visit was... More

My dad has a love of all things mechanical, historical, engineering, cake and honey. So the Chain Bridge Honey Farm was a must. We spent the most part of a day looking at old tractors and machinery, visited the museum which was from a bygone era and watched the birds nesting in the eves and nooks and crannies. Lunch on...

My mother really likes their honey, and sometimes can't buy it where she lives, so I am sent to stock up. For the first time we had a snack there, and the home baking was very good, excellent orange and almond cake. The honey products are very good, the lip balm is excellent, as is the polish.
