About Our Bees
Our two bee hives are placed to the rear of the Roof Terrace’s gardens and we employ eco-friendly methods for bee management and hive maintenance. Bee friendly plants have also been established around the hives. Our first batch of honey was produced in August 2015 and is used by bar staff in our cocktail menus.
