“Visited your new restaurant for the 1st time last night and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Lovely staff and very welcoming and knowledgeable about the food and drink. Looking forward to coming back again” Michael
I would highly recommend the Hive. My fiancé and I absolutely love the authentic home cooked Greek food. Generous portions, plenty of choice and a great selection of wines and beers. The owners, Emma and Stuart are always so kind and welcoming during our visits. The Hive is also a great place to pick up locally made produce such as honey and chutneys. A relaxed atmosphere for an evening meal, very clean and always playing great music.
I recently wanted to surprise my fiancé with a meal for his 40th birthday. Since all restaurants are closed due to lockdown, Stuart offered to prepare a meal for takeaway. Emma and Suzi cooked up a wonderful feast, including a traditional slow cooked lamb Kleftiko with seasoned rice, dips, bread and salads. It was beautifully presented and it made having a meal at home into a restaurant experience!
My 5 star review is based on their food – I’m convinced this is the best restaurant in the area. This place is a refreshing change when you get tired of restaurants who don’t ‘make’ the food they serve. When you learn that the chef lived in Greece in a Greek family and when you know important ingredients are imported for an authentic flavour, you can start to understand why this place is different. It really raises the bar for the area, everyone within reach should go.
Fantastic food. Delicious sea bass steamed on top of a bed of sauteed potatoes that had been marinated in oregano, olive oil and lemon juice, with a crispy Greek salad. The best we have ever eaten. You must try it!
Delicious food, had a chicken gyros, filled to the brim and very tasty! Good selection of drinks and the staff were very friendly! They do cakes and tea/coffee too!
“A great evening at Kypseli in Cranbrook recently, this is wonderful authentic Greek food with a local twist. Loved the moussaka and home made hoummus and what makes this place special is the love that reaches out from the kitchen to your plate! What better than live music and dancing after a great meal! Thank you Emma & Stuart, see you soon and T.Wells awaits your arrival later in the year!” Paul
The food was delicious! I visited the Hive last month and as a Greek person with high expectations in Greek cuisine, I can say that the food served there is amazing! In addition, the environment is pleasant and the staff friendly and polite. An excellent place to visit. Great job, guys! **** Google Review
Lovely setting & amazing food. Everyone was very friendly and we had such a great time! 100% recommend.
Saw the Greek Restaurant by chance online. Ordered a feast the day before and collected yesterday. The ordering process was easy and Stuart was helpful, even when I didnt fully consult the ‘boss’ who wanted something different! I had the Lamb Kleftico and my wife the Chicken and Pots. Both were really tasty and fresh. The Lamb was tender and the cooking juices tasty. The chicken was really authentic and my wife loved every bit – even chewing from the bone. We began with the Greek salad (fresh and traditional) and hummous and tzatziki (both fresh and clearly homemade). We followed with baklava and they were not too sickly sweet but crisp and delicious. Stuart was really helpful in bringing the meal to the car for me. We would recommend and will definitely be back. John
We came in the evening and, my god, the Anglo-Greek food by Emma was delicious! 😍 really warm friendly hospitality and a beautiful place to chill out- thanks for having us!
“Lovely, friendly hosts. Excellent food, we chose the taverna table. Amazingly generous and the hosts definitely went the extra mile for a 70th celebration. Flexible spaces for work , networking and play. Sound proofed areas. Exquisite decoration throughout. Definitely returning.” Caroline
Thank you very much for the Greek feasting hamper on Saturday night. It was all absolutely delicious and was very well received. I was very happy with everything. Absolutely the right amounts of everything too – a bit left over which was finished off the next day.
When we passed the Hive we were drawn to the Greek menu and ordered a take away Greek Feast for two, for the next day, with the lamb Kleftico. The meal was simply delicious. We chose two dips, with pita bread, the salad was very fresh and the lamb was so tender and tasty (and wrapped using bee ribbon!) . There was plenty of food to tide us over the next day. Would certainly have again. June 2021
Great addition to Cranbrook High Street. We’ve used the Hive for arranging meetings, business entertainment and social events. Great work space, delicious food and an excellent new wine selection. Worth a visit for locals and if you’re visiting the town.
Thank you so much for the really lovely take away you organised for us last night. The food was, as always, excellent. It was beautifully presented and packaged too. A real treat for a Monday night.
Once again, thank you and look forward to another excuse to support your local business.
