If choosing a pub involves ticking boxes, then The Beehive will keep you busy. Externally, it's 18th century, stands in a pleasant village, overlooks a cricket pitch and from its beer garden there are distant views of woods and rich pastureland. Inside, while contemporary in style, you just know it has always been the focus of village life. Real ales are from nearby breweries, and the bar also does snacks, such as rollmops and Scotch eggs. More box ticking will be required for award-winning chef Dominic Chapman's menu offering wild Berkshire rabbit and bacon pie with mash potato; roast Cornish cod, creamed Savoy cabbage, haricot beans, tarragon and bacon; and blackberry trifle.
