Our Hives

We are Buzzing to introduce you to the White Bears Bees. Honeybees are essential to the UK’s domestic food production. British fruit and vegetables and our meat and dairy industries all depend on bee pollination. This is why we have made the decision to re-activate the hives in our garden. We are passionate about the welfare of bees and are so pleased we can take this step towards sustainably produced honey.

Our Hives are only just starting up but very soon we hope to be producing enough honey that there will be hints of it throughout our menus. Follow our honey journey on the Bee Blog.

Sunday Roast

Serving up multiple cuts of roast meat, an array of seasonal trimmings, Yorkshire puddings and lashings of gravy, perfectly paired with our Bloody Mary’s. Vegans are in for a delight with our vegan roast.

We had a party of 10 people on a Saturday night and couldn’t have asked for better food or service. Everything was timed perfectly and tasted amazing and there was nothing our servers Lucy and Luke couldn’t do for us. Thank you for a fantastic night!
