We stopped off here after a family day out and really regretted it. First as we walked in the barman spoke to us like we shouldn't have been there, then a girl picked up the pieces and took us to a reserved table which wasn't been reserved?! As we sat down she said "menus, order at the bar" and that... More

Visited today and the young lady behind the bar was extremely rude! After working in a customer facing role myself for a number of years I would never have given this type of service and made people feel so uncomfortable!! Avoid at all costs

My partner & I went to the Honey Bee on 17/05/15 for afternoon drinks. The staff was friendly, and gave a good service. The menu had a good variety, and reasonably price. The honey bee was comfortable & had a good atmosphere. We had a nice afternoon.

Ok for that quick meal but not for special occasions. Don't take bookings and a lot of staff changes. No sign of any management.

For the past 3 years we have visited the Honey Bee for Xmas Day Dinner and this is fine. Although at £60 a head it is very pricey. The place does have its good and bad days although recently more bad as whenever I visit the service is somewhat disappointing.

I have not visited here for about 12 months until recently. Came for Sunday lunch. I managed 2 mouthfuls of my roast beef because the rest of the meat was not edible. Incredibly tough to the point I couldn't cut it. The vegetables were nice but the roasts weren't well cooked either (I expect roasts to be crunchy these were... More

Chose to eat here due to being close to the airport and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. I was expecting the same thing from a pub chain but the food was hot and tasty. I would definitely return here if ever we need somewhere to go when in this area

What a big disappointment!! We must of come on a really bad day as I was expecting a lot more. To start the service was a joke. From being seated to eating the main was about 90 min. Would of possibly forgiven this if the food was decent but out of 6 dishes only 1 was good. The starters was... More
