We had a rendezvous here, close to Manchester airport, easy to find. Nice food but the service was a bit tired and miserable. I actually caught our waiter pulling a face as we dithered about whether to eat in or out. In the end we carried our own food out and spared him the effort. There's room outside to relax... More

My husband and I recently visited the Honey Bee for lunch with our 18 months old toddler. I loved the décor and wished we could have stayed outside but unfortunately the weather didn't allow for that to happen. The service was very friendly but a bit slow. Once the food arrived it was lovely and we couldn't fault it. We... More

We only choose this as it was close to manchester airport for picking our daughter up, very disappointed it both the food and the decor, felt more like a hungry horse and food didn't do any better, best advice is carry on driving and spend your money somewhere else

I am so sorry that I imposed my family on the staff of the Honey Bee. Slow, miserable and so keen to say NO! They seemed happiest as we left when we had the full range of... 'enjoy the rest of your day' ' take care now's'. My day would have been so much better if we had gone elsewhere.... More

Arrived at the Honey Bee at 12, we were the only customers. Our order was taken and took over 20 minutes to arrive. The food was cold and of a very poor standard. And as a chef I would have been embarrassed to have served food of that very low standard so therefore will not be coming back and certainly... More

I went with family for lunch. It was fairly busy but not full by any stretch we waited ages even just for our order to be taken.I had a pepsi which tasted off which I informed them of and they replaced it with a bottle of coke, fair enough. I then ordered a pepsi again for my next drink (presuming... More

After an absence of more than seven years, my family visited this large, imposing building on the outskirts of Wilmslow, to celebrate my wife's birthday. There is an attractive outdoor seating area and various indoor areas. Internally, it is very clean (including the large toilets) with modern furnishings and is very light. As it was a gloriously sunny day, it... More

Absolutely appauling customer service! We arrived and the waitress took our drinks, starters and main orders. The drinks arrived after a fifteen minute wait which should have set alarm bells ringing but we gave them the benefit of the doubt. Shortly after the starters arrived but they weren't very nice. After 40 minutes we noticed the table which ordered ten... More

Visited this pub on Thursday lunchtime. The attitude of the female member of staff behind the bar was appalling. Unhelpful, unfriendly and unprofessional. We decided not to stay and went across the road to the Cheshire Smokehouse. What a difference. They were welcoming, friendly and the food was superb. The Honey Bee management could gain a lot by sending their... More

Visited here on a stay at the Airport Inn. We both ordered pies and were happy enough with the food. The staff were friendly on arrival and quick service once the food was ordered. There was some delay on paying the bill but all in all enjoyed the food we had. Would visit again.
