HONEYBEE INN
Doverdale Lane, Doverdale, Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire 

 

Situated in a spectacular rolling countryside setting, the amazing Honeybee Inn is Britain's only honey farm pub where honey is actually produced on the premises - and has been for at least 900 years. A plethora of honey-making memorabilia from centuries past adorns this huge and delightfully appointed pub which is sure to enthral all the family. Honeycomb ale is always available in addition to a menu that offers many delicious dishes made with all types of honey.
 

 

The interior workshop offers the chance to actually see
the honey extraction process taking place. A shop inside
the inn has a huge range of honey and related items

available for purchase. Dozens of large hives are
scattered around the outside of the inn with at least a
dozen or more active at any one time, mostly near the
pool at the bottom of the hill. It is said that even today
the local inhabitants of Doverdale still smear their newly
born children with Doverdale Honey in a ritual which
predates Christianity. The health giving and medical
qualities are said to prove its worth.
