Moby Duck left this review about The Beehive

A good looking wedge-shaped Greene King pub set on a steep hill intersected by a road either side.Inside I found a long multi-roomed ,split on several levels interior with a welcoming open fire at the top and widest end on what was a very cold January day. The servery runs along the rear wall as you enter, the bar top was mounted with six handles all in use and not being a Greene King beer fan was pleased to note half were guest ales. I went with a pint of Hop Kettle Duet #5 the others on offer were, Old Specled Hen, London Glory and House beer Two Bees from the GK stable, the other two guests being White Horse Porter and Goffs White Knight.I was plesantly suprised by the warmth and proper pub feel about the place and would be happy to include it on any pub crawl of the town.

Description of premises as per Alan's review below. Since then it must've been through some changes as there are now 6 hand pumps complete with tasting notes around the fireplace and no mainstream lager present.

As mentioned steps are everywhere in here and there are also some quirky narrow tables just to the left on entry from Prospect Hill in the top area with benches along all of this wall in the bar area.

The pub comes complete with a black cat that appears to Lord it over the top bar area.

Overall a very pleasant pub just away from the town centre. And as a Camra 2016 entrant is probably popular with real ale fans.
