If i could only pick one favourite here in the UK (let alone on the bike), The Hive would be it! A warm welcome always awaits from the friendly team, where inside the decors combines Cotswolds chic with a modern twist.
The cake and menu changes on a daily basis and there’s always something new and unusual to try – rasberry and coconut, lemon and passionfruit and biscottee to name a few.
The coffee is from Union coffee roasters and always very tasty – I can highly recommend the Cappucinno – very chocolatey.
In terms of hot food there’s a wide range of choice. I can highly recommend the homemade quiche which is served with a choice of salads, including the Hive slaw which is simply devine! The sandwiches are served in their own sourdough – the roast ham and sticky pickle a great choice.
