Welcome back to the Beehive

About Us

Named after the town of Beehive in Ireland where James Colvin, the first publican, was born, The Beehive Hotel first opened its doors in 1855. One of the first Public Houses open East of the Yarra river, the current building has stood proudly on Barkers Road, originally named Beehive Road, since 1882.  
While The Beehive has changed much throughout the generations, the original interiors are still featured today - giving off a rustic and earthy feel. Our establishment has a long-standing tradition of being a much loved local meeting place, and we intend to maintain that tradition for generations to come. As a local family, our goal is to restore the venue to its origins of being a family-friendly and food-focused local public house that encapsulates the iconic Beehive Hotel and its rich 160-year-old history.  
Driven by a strong passion for tradition and history, we strive to maintain good old-fashioned hospitality. Our delectable menu items are sourced from the highest quality of local and International produce, and paired with the finest wines that Australia, and the world, have to offer.


The Pizzeria at the Beehive is the heart of our establishment, and we pride ourselves on always delivering a truly memorable pizza experience.  
We source only Denominazione d' Origine Protetta produce direct from Italy in addition to premiere quality ingredients from local suppliers. Our delicious buffalo mozzarella, juicy San Marzano tomatoes, Italian yeast and Neapolitan flours are masterfully prepared by our traditionally trained chefs. Our wood-fire pizza oven is a product of master craftsmanship, fired by a combination of Australian reclaimed hardwoods and a special wood product sourced from Italy.  
Our wood-fired pizzas pay tribute to the masterful techniques and dedication to perfection found in time-honored traditions of the old world, combined with an exuberant passion for innovation and a desire to integrate the freshest flavours of the new. Your palate will melt at the classic taste of our true Neapolitan-style pizzas and light up with excitement when you try our Beehive originals.
