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!


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.

Liz from Cranbrook

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.

Catherine from Cranbrook

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!

j Warram

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!

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.

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.
