After a long history, this pub was converted into a Thai restaurant which actually did sell Real Ale. In May 2014 it was taken over and closed by Hawthorn Leisure, who have applied for planning permission to convert it into a house. When visited in June 2015, the building was on the market and clearly abandoned.
A local campaign was launched late in 2015 to try to get the pub reopened. For more information about the campaign see www.thebeehivehorringer.co.uk or contact Peter Crofts on 01284 735044 or at petercrofts@bt internet.com.
In August 2016 it was announced that a local businessman has bought the pub and intends to reopen it in the near future.
Built circa 1830, it was a flint faced, cottage style pub with a series of seating areas.
