“Found the food to be okay”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The atmosphere was good but felt rushed due to the place being so busy. The food was not bad but it wasn't great either (had the steak). Service was fine, and cost was okay.

“The Bumble Bee is very popular”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Good staff, really nice local restaurant and the food is excellent. The only problem is parking at certain times of the day, especially on a Saturday or Sunday. Not too bad if you have an early lunch or evening meal.

“Lovely Evening”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

My daughter had a small birthday party here recently just after the re-fit. They thoroughly enjoyed there evening. Staff and service were excellent my daughter said that the guy serving them looked after them well, nothing to much trouble and with a gang of 14 year olds they probably gave him a run around. They all thoroughly enjoyed there meal, all served and presented lovely, very good value for money.

All in all good evening was had and I'm sure they will return soon for another party.

“A nice place for lunch”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is a very nice family pub. Its a chain but the food quality is very good and the menu is varied. Ther was a family area with large tables and a play area for small children. We had a longer wait for our food than we would have liked but when it arrived it was nice and hot and well cooked and the portion sizes were good.

At 2for1 (about 10 - 11 pounds) its very good value for money as well.
