This is a lovely pub, a home from home and well worth the trek from Norwich city centre. Friendly staff and a decent selection of ales served in tip-top condition. Unmissable.

The Beehive is a good 25-30 minute walk west of the city centre. It is located in a residential area and has a friendly clientele, as well as friendly staff. There are 2 main bars with a smaller drinking area in between. 7 real ales were on - Winters On The Beer City, Brandon Norfolk Poacher, Downton Honey Blonde, Green Jack Golden Best & Orange Wheat Beer, Fullers London Pride & Oakham Scarlet Macaw. The cider was Broadoak Draught which is fetched from the cellar and was very refreshing after the long walk.

Visited again on Xmas Eve, just as good as ever, 7 beers available, and full of friendly locals, a real thriving local.

Nearest pub to my parents house to escape to when visiting them, a cracking local, one side a public bar with bare boards, the other a lounge with big comfy sofas. Always a friendly welcome from staff and locals alike, does 6 local beers on draught, when I visited they had beers from Humpty Dumpty (Reedham), and Wolf (Attleborough) and very good they were too. Sells bottled Elgood Black Dog mild plus a selection of interesting lagers/ Belgian beers too. It never ceases to amaze me how Norwich can support so many good pubs......

Great little local boozer tucked away in one of the nicest corners of Norwich. Superb selection of ales at affordable prices (they usually have 4 or 5 on, which never dissapoint), dart board (all too rare in pubs these days, especially decent ones) and a beer garden. Even the dirty trough in the gents has a certain charm. The old landlord opened early on the day of my wedding for me and some mates to have a few drinks, that's the sort of pub it is, I'm pretty sure the new landlady would do the same; its a very friendly and accomodating place. Not sure why its unknown to most people from other parts of the city, but its probably best kept that way.

Was worried I wouldn't make it to this pub as it didn't open till 5pm, but was so glad I went towards the end of my Norwich crawl. Found a couple of Tindall beers and enjoyed the conversation with the landlady and one of the locals who knew my old stomping ground at Hartlepool. Great atmosphere and great beer.

One for the locals and why not? The small public bar was full of customers in conversation rather reminiscent of the hum from a beehive! In contrast, the lounge was virtually empty in spite of the comfort offered by the biggest number of leather “Chesterfield” sofas that I have ever seen in one pub – six in all- two of them six-seaters. Good range of real ales with two from local Wolf brewery plus one from Tipples (another local) and three from elsewhere. Unfortunately not really within easy walking distance of Norwich centre but it does open all day till late.

Nice pub with good beer. Had first beer festival this year which was spot on. Left my festival glass there so landlord gave me his spare. Good man. Will definately visit again to sup ale on the biggest collection of chesterfields I have seen in a pub.

Cracking freehouse with superb collection of ales. Visited for first time Sunday just gone (though knew of it's reputation for long while), where they had a mini beer-festival (their first) in their garden. Friendly people, nice bright and individual decor inside pub - cracking pub, and not too far from The Fat Cat and plenty of other excellent pubs this side of the city.
