Very Nice if not a bit small on the servings

Ordered the mussels as a large meal which was big enough for me, and very tasty. My fellow comanion ordered the ristoto which was also very nice but the serving was a bit small for the price of the meal. The service was very good the waiters making sure that we were well looked after. Would go back... read more

Over rated and over priced £18 for 3 ice creams never again. Would not recommend this eatery for families far better cafes in Aberaeron and better value for money. No atmosphere. Carrying dirty full garbage bins through restaurant, not good, health and safety ugh!!!!!

It was the first time me and my family had visited The Hive today for my son's birthday lunch. My father's burger was burnt; when a waitress was informed she made no apology whatsoever and long after everyone else had finished their meals, my dad's unburnt burger arrived. I've never come across staff in a restaurant that are quite so... More

We visited on a lovely July day as we liked the look of the place and its location. We sat in the Courtyard and a waitress came over with menus. We then waited and waited but no-one came back. My husband went inside and asked if we could order in there but was told someone would be out immediately. Still... More

Super setting by the harbour the most delicious ice-cream but The Hive itself offers great atmosphere and a great and varied menu. Staff so helpful, good coffee and tea and brilliant bar. Outside seating too. Well worth visiting Kath Editor Welsh Country magazine

We decided to come here after the array of wonderful and mixed reviews on various places in Aberaeron. It was near to where we are staying and the menu looked reasonable. It was a good call. We both had Hake as the main course which was a good portion, very tasty and accompanied by chips, our choice. Service was very... More

If you love the idea of honey ice cream then this is the place for you. Try the black currant and honey or the coffee and honey and see what you think: I'll bet you'll agree with me! Went there twice and would go back...if the waistline allowed it. A little pricey but lovely ice cream.
