The food we all had was well received and of good quality. Our waitress was excellent and looked after us well. Downside only one cask ale available and this ran out part way through visit causing our group to decant to another pub!

The waitresses were lovely - the food was ok but the manager has a bad attitude ,is rude and clearly turning a blind eye to the crowd of men taking
Coccaine - we were unfortunately on a table right next to them . Despite the little bee being our local we won’t be going there again ! Horrendous - we couldn’t wait to finish our food and get out of there :-(

We arrived after booking a table for 6 adults and 2 children may I add from 2 households.. the tables were quite far apart so we asked if we could move closer we was advised from the staff this was ok to do so when we was approached by a door man who said we couldn’t we then checked with staff again who said we could and then once again the door man said we couldn’t and that it wasn’t up to the staff it was up to him and off we did he would leave the premises and they would have to close. This resulted in us only staying for drinks and going elsewhere for food. The staff did there upmost to accommodate and had no issues. I feel I would recommend to a friend but not in a large group

By chance our table was booked on the England v Germany match so pub much busier than originally thought. However Rachel and her colleagues were tremendously helpful and found us an outside table as the back of the Little B. We had a wonderful night , enjoyed the excitement of the football fans..though from a distance...

Perhaps the evening of the England Scotland match was a mistake. But we thought 5pm would have been ok! We go to the Little Bee quite frequently. This hopefully a one off.

Second visit in recent times. Service very friendly and efficient - Nicki particularly so.
My food and my daughters was very good, my wife had the Yorkie Wrap which she did not rate - chicken a bit dry and the Yorkshire Pudding wrap was a bit rubbery, however she really enjoyed the sticky toffee pud. Certainly the Little B will be on our regular list.

Food was excellent and service also good - unfortunately England were playing in the Euros and coverage was on the screens in the pub - so it got quite loud and noisy

Food was very good, especially for a pub. Presentation of the cheesecake was of a decent class restaurant standard. The two girls (young ladies) serving us were very pleasant and efficient. My wife and I eat out a couple of times a week, Covid permitting, at a full range of pubs and restaurants and found the Little B to be a winner. I am sure it will now be a regular for us.

The food did take a while to come out, however, staff did explain they was a chef down and we did get a discount on the final bill, which was not expected but appreciated :) Overall the service was excellent all staff we're polite and helpful. Will definitely visit again.

We all said we’d definitely eat here again( 6 of us) as the food was lovely and very reasonably priced, we all loved the bell idea and found it quite funny. The waitress service was excellent, they were both very pleasant and couldn’t do enough for us. Thanks for a lovely evening and we will definitely be recommending it to our family and friends 💯

Gravy was like water and tasteless!! Meat seems to be a lot less than previous meals on Sunday dinner.. I did point out to staff it’s minor issues and won’t stop me returning.. but hope gravy changes and more meat on Sunday dinner .. very small 2 slices
