We had an early dinner one evening and we really enjoyed ourselves. The service was outstanding too. I had a cheese soup with ale in it or something and the wonderful wedge salad. It's a beautiful building.

The bar proper is so beautiful. Wow! Beer selection was broad - and enjoyed the draft selection. Two at our table enjoyed the chicken pot pie - and just the right size. Fish and chips got a good vote. Mussels were cold when they arrived....More

It has been many, many years since I've stopped in to the Golden Bee. It hasn't changed but does look like it could use a little heavy maintenance to maintain Broadmoor standards for an English pub. The beer selection continues to be excellent even though...More

Early evening dinner with my wife. Hadn't been there in years. The food was excellent as expected. The best fish-n-chips in town. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. We definitely would go back.

I have been going to the Bee annually for years. It is a lot of fun. However if you are coming here for the food or service you would be dissapointed. Eat before you go and enjoy the beer there!!
