Designed by the architect of the Pittville Pump Room, John Forbes, the oldest part of the building dates from 1822 and was recorded as The Beehive in the 1850s census. Wool auctions are reputed to have been held in the rear upper assembly room during the 19th Century and this room was apparently used for meetings of the Freemasons during the 20th Century.
The Beehive is one of the areas very popular pubs and restaurants.
