L-shaped room with the bar in the centre of the L. Decently done out but nothing to recommend it beerwise. Not worth a return.

The Beehive is a back street pub that looks like it has been done up from the outside.
Once inside i had a drink in an oblong shaped room which was bare boarded,the seating was normal tables and chairs.
There were four pumps on the bar but the only real ale was Doom Bar,this drink was ok.
There is a smaller room behind the bar which also had normal tables and chairs.
Background music was playing.
This is one of the few pubs left in Walworth that have real ales on the bar.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Beehive

There is nothing really wrong with the place - just the sort of stripped pine and candles on the tables part-gentrified establishment that you would expect to find at this distance from central London. Quite a selection of whiskies if that's your thing, but only two of the four handpumps had clips on, and both of those were for Pride! Not worth going out of your way for.

There were four handpumps on the bar – two were unused; one had a Bombardier clip turned round; and the fourth was dispensing London Pride. I had the Pride (of course) which was OK and at £3 a pint reasonably priced. This looks like an estate pub with delusions of grandeur. It’s bare-boarded, with plain wooden tables and chairs. There is a TV screen, but when I was in it was showing Sky Sports with the sound muted. There was some music playing in the background, although not too loudly; in fact pretty well drowned by half a dozen mirthful girls having lunch (luckily for me) at the other end of the bar from me.
There looks to be pretty good food menu. I had a tuna ciabatta sarny, that came with some sort of crisps, and a bit of salad – not too bad at £4.99. The wines on offer were listed on a large chalkboard above the bar. This is one of those pubs that have been made over to such an extent that they retain little or nothing of their original pub character. A decent ale would help. It’s an “OK” bar, but there are better pubs about.
