Set in the harbour with indoor and outdoor seating The Hive is in an enviable position. Very laid back atmosphere but the service was prompt. Their homemade hot dogs with various toppings seem very popular. My party had 2 different hot dogs, a burger and the crab & chilli risotto. All very nice meals. All followed by delicious ice cream...

We were looking for a restaurant serving fresh fish.The Hive is just that place. Outdoors on the terrace you are next to a great display of fresh local caught fish.Don't leave without visiting the shop. A very relaxed terrace with great views of the river and old harbour. The service was friendly .Not long after our drinks were served, our... More

A really nice spot to sit outside and enjoy Aberaeron and the lovely painted Georgian houses. I had a crab risotto which was really nice and my husband had mussels which were cooked really well. The beers we had were local and very enjoyable. We did not have to wait very long to be served and all those who served... More

We recently spent a two-day break near Aberystwyth and called at The Hive for coffee on two separate occasions. Lovely views of the river from the outdoor tables, very nice coffee but very unfriendly staff.

We had a lovely meal yet again at the Hive. Great staff fab food and "a doggy bag madam no problem" Nothing too much trouble. Love the way the menu changes, always some thing new to try. Just wish I could make it to the puddings always too full after the main course If your looking for a great night... More

The hive does the best ice anywhere in the entire world and I have travelled an awful lot of it so feel qualified enough to say that comment on here.... We also sat down for dinner... More

The place itself has a great view of the harbour. Just been for food and can't say we were to impresed. The service was slow and when we had to complain regarding the chicken burger it wasn't handled in a very appropriate way. However the food was hot and the ice cream was lovely so i would say it's ok... More

We stopped at the Hive twice during half-term, on our way to and from Pembrokeshire. Service a little frosty on our first visit, but coffee and cake were good (if a bit expensive), so gave them the benefit of the doubt. On our second visit, we really felt like we were causing them a great inconvenience (fancy wanting food!), and... More

Found this little gem by accident. Stopped for drinks and ice cream. Had wonderful range of desserts, and the sundaes and chocolate brownies were to die for. Didn't eat here, but the menu and setting looked lovely.
