Went early Saturday evening with my wife, seated right away, left with menus, drinks order taken right away, and drinks brought within a couple of minutes. Had soup and warm bread for starters, then a fantastic steak each, with brandy peppercorn sauce, lovely well cooked chips and onion rings. Staff kept us topped up with drinks. My wife had sticky...

The Honey Bee is in a handy location between the M56 and Wilmslow and has good access from either side. It has plenty of seating, both inside and out, and provides good pub fare at a reasonable price and served both within a very reasonable time and nicely. Judging by the buzz on a Friday lunchtime it has to have... More

Called late afternoon as we prepared for a holiday next day, came across it by chance as we turned left and could quite easily turned right and never found it. What a delight and I would imagine in summer the place is hugely popular. Meet and greet by the bar staff was smiley and slick and we had soon ordered... More

Lovely pub, serving delicious food. Best chips I've eaten in a long time! Offers both table service and order at the bar, which is good. Will definitely be back.

Admittedly, the restaurant was not very busy but the table service was excellent until the very end of our visit. A warm welcome and we were seated immediately and given menus. Our waiter was friendly and attentive and appeared to be enjoying his job. Choice of food (especially for vegetarians like me) was excellent. It's a light and spacious place... More

Gave a phone call to The Honey Bee and booked a table for 6pm on Sunday evening. Seated straight away and ordered one Sunday roast turkey and one cod and chips - nothing complicated you would think. Well 55 minutes later and asking on 2 or 3 occassions when we might expect to eat - 2 very tepid meals arrived.... More
