The Beehive London W1

Just five minutes walk from Baker Street Station and on Crawford Street, The Beehive is a small pub that serves great food and seems to have a buzz (sorry couldn't resist that) that will make it a regular haunt.

I went on a Friday night and as there were 9 of us we had booked a table - I get the impression that it is busy at weekends so is worth booking. Clientelle were young professionals out after work and serving staff were efficient. The menu is wide enough and you can opt for a full three courses. We decided on just the one - I went for a homemade burger. To be honest I have found that a burger is a great measure of a place - if they can do a good burger made with good quality mince beef then they get a large tick. My burger was good and served with a fried egg on top and an extemely light and fluffy white bun. Accompanying chips were golden and chunky.
