Cuisine: A La Carte, Australian, Public House
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $35+

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.

The food was delicious! Would recommend

Went for lunch at the Beehive and had a wonderful experience. The meal was delicious and the service excellent. The menu was extensive and 99 % gluten free. We commended the chef and he told us that even the gnocchi was gluten free and freshly made by him.

Love the atmosphere. Great, old cosy pub. Cosy and contemporary. Can still see it's a lovely old pub. Amazing how quiet it was considering your on a very busy intersection.
Arancini was the best I've ever had. Complete winner.
Pizza was a little too smothered in cheese. Couldn't taste the prawns much and the completely lost the ricotta. Shame coz I could tell it was fresh and tasty. Pizza base not home made?
Steak was well cooked with good flavour but a bit chewy which was a real shame. Seemed like it wasn't an overly good piece of meat. Overall a good local pub.

Great little pub with excellent food. Cheeseboard shared between 4 of us a very generous starter. We had porterhouse, party, gnocchi and burger for mains, all delicious and my daughter who’s gluten intolerant loved the choices on the menu. Our waitress Catrin was very friendly and professional. Well worth a visit.
