Booked dinner for Friday evening and seated upstairs. It featured live music but a suggestion is to try to get a table downstairs where there is more atmosphere. The food was good and overall it was an enjoyable experience without being particularly memorable.

Unfortunately we arrived after 8 and that is all they wanted to do was rush us to close to close down the restaurant because there wasn't many there. There was no crushed ice so they couldn't do us many cocktails. Steaks was nice but only came with chips even though it said on the menu it comes with onion rings.... More

I wanted a light bite as I'd had a huge lunch. The chicken goujons with chilli sauce were very nice and a lovely large pinot to wash it down with. It was prettily lit with a great fire place. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.

Popped into the Hive for coffee after work as we do quite often, the place is amazing. Chilled staff, fantastic food and really good coffee. One of two places in Aberaeron that you will get some really good (not pub grub type) food. A quick bowl of crackling and off for a wander up the prom, seriously good way to... More

We've been to the Hive 3 times now and it never disappoints! This time we had the Hive fish pie which is delicious! ! I recommend it to anyone who loves fish especially locally caught!

a birthday treat for a group of us, we indulged in starters, mains and puddings, the food was very nice, well cooked and served hot but the service wasnt great, we waited ages for each course and even longer for the bill, having to remind her to clear our plates etc. We would return but not put up with the...

Ate here with my husband tonight. We both had the risk it for the brisket burger which we enjoyed. While waiting for our meals a gang of men came in and really spoilt the calm atmosphere. They were quite rowdy, loud and swearing despite children being present in the restaurant. The gang were gathered blocking the bar so staff could... More

Would recommend for drinks, lovely setting and cosy inside with nice decor. Food and service is hit and miss, some dishes lovely and others very average. Definitely think staff need better training!
