“Perfect English Fish 'n Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Visiting Colorado Springs this week, and I wanted to visit The Golden Bee. What a delightful dinner! We had fish and chips, cooked perfectly, and an amber beer. They serve a really yummy cheese dip with crackers before. Loved it!

“Will Not Return”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Waited 2 hrs for a table after being promised a spot by the inept "keepers of the gate" (they don't take reservations)...ok it was Sat nite Labor Day Weekend but... the whole waiting process is chaos...food looked like plain pub grub...they won't seat after the piano music starts...I suggest this place does a review of it's seating system...many angry customers. No way will we return.

“Great history, and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Food at The Golden Bee is excellent, as is the service! They serve the best chicken pot pie I have ever eaten. For a special treat, try the deep fried Mars bar. If you're heading there for dinner, be sure to arrive before 7PM or you might not get a seat. This is small restaurant, so seating space is limited. I ate there 3 times in one week, so you know it's great!

“The Golden Bee for good pod and good fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012 via mobile

Close quarters making for good camaraderie with other patrons! Everyone joins in on the fun of celebrations, singing, enjoyment. Ample portions of hearty tavern food, good service, accommodating and friendly. Get 'Bee'd' for your birthday! I just did!
