The Hive is situated in an historic, converted wharf located in the centre of Aberaeron, with stunning views over the river Aeron and picturesque harbour. The Hive has recently been taken over by the Davies family and owners Rhys and Rhodri run the successful Ice Cream Parlour, Café and Licensed Restaurant serving delicious food - there is serious eating to be enjoyed here! by the fire in the café, in the spacious conservatory or outside in the courtyard overlooking the harbour.
The menu at The Hive focuses on the rich and varied supply of freshly caught fish and shellfish including oysters, mackerel, sardines, lobster and crab. Apart from seafood, there is a range of other mouth-watering dishes to choose from. The Hive menu has an innovative, fresh Mediterranean characteristic, where the finest produce, sourced locally where possible, is paramount.
Set in such a beautiful location there is little more enjoyable than sitting watching the sun setting over the harbour sipping a cool drink…… Alternatively, sitting cosily around the fire with a warming coffee!
The Hive has been the home of Hive Honey Ice Cream for 40 years, now widely known for its unique flavour and quality.
