A little pub history

Waterwells, where the Bumble Bee is situated, is mentioned as early as 1605 and was the part of a parish noted for its many fresh water springs. In 1901 the land was mainly meadow, but by the 1930's large orchards had been planted, probably to supply G.H.Mayo and Sons, cider makers and fruit merchants.

Make a day of it

Just a few miles from the Cotswolds, the Bumble Bee is set in beautiful gardens near Waterwells Business Park.
