The Beehive, Swindon   23 comments

Update 2012-04-07: now thatI’ve been here a couple of times I see that they do have some reasonably priced ale (GK IPA is dirt cheap) and they warm up to you if you are similarly sullen and quiet.  The music piped in rules and they get pretty good live acts in (one of the guys from Dr. Feelgood is playing tomorrow night).  My original write-up, which resulted from my initial impressions, remains in the rest of this post:

On our way to Fratello’s for dinner before the Wyvern Theatre for the traveling production of “An Inspector Calls”

An old joke:  This guy sees a kid selling lemonade in front of his house and as it is a bit warm out he stops and asks how much for a glass.  The kid answers, “£750.00.”  The guy replies, “Lad, you aren’t going to sell much at that price.”  The kid snaps back, “I only need to sell one glass, geezer.”

A pint at the not especially friendly Beehive cost £3.70.  Joke is on me, and if you are all lubed up you can get this sort of ass drilling humour here.  If not, zoom out a bit and you’ll find something cheaper (but doubtfully better) a short walk away.  Stick with it, though, and the place will grow on you if, for no other reason, the exit is the Tardis.
