The Bees’ Knees
At our brewery site in the picturesque village of Laneham, near Retford, North Notts, we also have an onsite pub, The Bees Knees, run by Landlord David. The Bees’ Knees team offer a warm welcome to fans of top quality real ale, with a great range of Springhead and other craft beers, as well as real ciders. They also have an excellent selection of spirits, with over 50 different gins on offer, and fine wines. David and team serve a full menu of quality beer-matched meals, snacks and desserts, along with regularly changing specials. All of the food is cooked onsite from scratch, using only the finest quality locally-sourced ingredients. The food and drinks at The Bees’ Knees are also complimented by lively chat and a great atmosphere.
The pub comprises three rooms, with the main bar, dining room, and snug with a real fire to keep you warm on long winter nights. It also has a lovely outside decking area for the summer. There are also traditional pub games such as darts, dominos and cards, occasional live music evenings including Sunday jazz, and a piano available for a good old sing-song!
The Bees Knees is also the starting point for tours of the brewery. For more info, or to book your brewery tour, please contact David on 01777 228090.
