We appreciate being seated even though our open table reservation didn't go through. The pork appy was a highlight as well as the tart cherry dessert. The cod was very flavourful.

In between our tour through the Garden of the Gods and visit to the Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Golden Bee. The initial greeters could have been a tad more welcoming. I felt like we were an interruption. When we were shown to our table, I nearly asked for a different one, as ours... More

We have dined at this pub eatery at the fabulous Broadmoor many times on previous visits here and always loved it. Sadly this trip the fare was seriously subpar. We both had the fish & chips which we had enjoyed on many previous visits. This time the fish was cut much thinner and had a mushy texture. The batter was... More

We always like to take guests to the Broadmoor as one of CS top attractions. Relatives visited & we wanted to have a meal after a walk through the grounds. The Golden Bee was perfect. Getting the souvenir "bee" made an impression. The menu is reflective of the English theme, although not extensive. Quality was very good and we enjoyed... More

Came here on a Tuesday night for 8pm reservations. Definitely make reservations in advance, the place was packed. The ambiance is awesome, really feels like you're in an English pub. I can't say enough good things about the piano singalong - the guy playing was awesome and everyone really got into it! I had the fish and chips, which were... More

I have been a visitor to the Golden Bee for nearly 50 years and I'm sorry to say that it just isn't what it used to be. Our dinners last evening were lack luster. Their usually excellent and signature fish and chips was only, soggy and tasteless. The Shepard's pie only a bit above average. As a Mug holder I... More

Beer cheese soup was tasty and the chicken sandwich was good as well. Portions were on the small side but priced fairly. Service was very slow even on what appeared to be a quiet afternoon.

When you pay $12 for a mixed drink, you would think there would be a little alcohol in it. Go with a beer or wine and hope that they're not watering it down behind the bar. I guess they did give us a free bee sticker, so maybe that should count for something. 🐝
