Popular White Waltham pub, The Beehive, has been selected as one of the Top 50 Gastropubs in the 2024 Estrella Damm rankings.

The countryside pub is nestled in the heart of White Waltham, overlooking the village cricket ground and offers a robust menu of heart-warming, affordable and flavour packed dishes with quintessential British produce at its core. The pub’s menu celebrates the changing seasons, and its kitchen sources produce from the nation’s uplands, pastures, meadows, woods and hedgerows as well as local rivers and seas to create a roster of dishes that represent British dining at its best.

The Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropub awards were first launched in 2009 and celebrate hardworking individuals and businesses within the gastropub industry. The rankings are determined by a 350 strong team of industry experts from across the country that comprises pub operators, food writers, pubco catering development managers, executive chefs, celebrity and top hospitality industry chefs, pub guide editors, industry chiefs and food operators.

In the commentary, The Beehive has been described as “a beautiful British country pub offering a delicious menu, fine wine list and great cask Ales” and a “true labour of love”. The rankings also praise the ambiance of the pub, claiming it is “ideal for a long, sun-drenched afternoon lounge in the garden” as well as a “cosy, boozy winter night nestled in its traditional bar.”

The Beehive was recently taken over by Restaurateur Ruchi Mehrotra from Tangy Treat Ltd in November 2023. She is working alongside Head Chef Alex Parker who commented on the achievement: “Being in Top 50 list and securing rank 22 is a great achievement for me and my team. I’ve been a chef at The Beehive for 3 years, we’ve got a lot in the works and the future is looking really exciting. A huge thank you to the whole team and of course, our guests who have helped us put White Waltham on the foodie map!”
