The Beehive is a very good village Pub. It has a great selection of beers, at reasonable prices, and has a good number of ciders, which suits me. It's not a Wetherspoons but it's comfortable and welcoming and the food is well-prepared and affordable. £7 or £8 a plate for straightforward Pub Grub.

Access is easy and there seems to be no trouble with children or pets. Not only would I go back to this pub, I already do. My pal and I meet every Friday for lunch-time drinks in and around Milton Keynes/Towcester and we regularly visit the Beehive, (every couple of months or so.). The Staff are friendly and make you feel at home.

A traditional boozer overlooking the village green, this seems to be a popular meeting place for the locals, and it was good to see it reasonably busy of an early evening on a recent mid-week visit. There is a beer garden alongside to make the most of the pleasant outlook, although on this occasion it was largely covered by a marquee. Whether this is usually the case, or whether there is an event coming up, I’m not sure.

Inside it’s a single room, L-shape bar with old wooden boards on the floor and some vinyl tiles around the bar, many of which were missing. The bar is stone built, there was a dart board and trophy cabinet at the rear and there was a log fire blazing away which was a nice touch on a rather cold spring evening. Various beer mats adorned one of the ceiling beams and there were a few tankards hanging up there as well. A number of old pictures and local black and white photos hung on the walls, and the bay windows housed a collection of old china mugs and copper cider ladles. A small blackboard listed forthcoming events such as karaoke and a charity raffle.

The menu was a very basic pub grub affair, with a small selection of dishes such as lasagne, cod & chips, ham, egg & chips, etc., with most of the mains around the £5 - £6 mark and there was also a few sandwiches. My Scampi & Chips was as decent as it can be, and was quite good value considering the generous portion size.

Beers on tap were William Young’s No. 3, Timothy Taylor Golden Best and Wells Eagle IPA. Good choice of ciders with Stowford Press and Scrumpy Jack on tap along with Weston’s Old Rosie and Bee Sting Pear cider served up from boxes on the end of the bar.

Bar staff all seemed friendly and helpful, and all in all I’d say this was probably a great village local. It doesn’t have quite the cosy ambience of many country pubs, and it’s clearly not a food destination, but neither of those are necessarily bad things. Good beer and company are obviously very important.
