For fresh, seasonal plates and wood-fired pizzas, look no further than this characterful pub, which has offered a warm welcome since 1855.
Named after the town of Beehive in Ireland where James Colvin, the founding publican, was born, it was one of the first Public Houses to open east of the Yarra river and still boasts its original interiors.
Enjoy delicious nibbles, including wood-fired olives, with a glass of Australian fine wine while you wait, before choosing from fresh oysters, hearty salads, mouth-watering meat dishes straight from the grill and pastas that pack a punch in the flavour department.
Tuck into classic pizza recipes such as porcini and margherita, or opt for something a little more avant-garde, like garlic chilli prawns. All the bases are super thin with a gluten-free option.
If you’re a hungry history lover or a fan of quality food in an atmospheric setting, look no further than The Beehive Hotel! Located on Barkers Road in leafy Hawthorn.
