Located on Grosvenor Road in Altrincham, The Hive by VH_Interiors is an independent shop run and owned by Steven & Gareth.
The Hive opened in 2018 as a showroom for the larger pieces we couldn't display at our nearby market concession, but at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 we made the decision to leave Altrincham Market after 5 years and focus all our energy on The Hive. 
In January 2021 after a lot of hard work, we rebranded The Hive as a General Store & Beverage Bar and we were able to open our doors once again in April 2021. We are now open 6 days a week (Tuesdays to Sundays) and we are loving the feedback you are giving the General Store & Beverage Bar!
The General Store is stocked with a range of products including:
  • Plastic free cleaning accessories
  • Eco friendly cosmetics
  • Confectionaries such as sweets, cookies, cakes and tray bakes
  • Reclaimed antiques and homewares 
  • Candles and aromatherapy oils 
  • Greetings cards 
  • Locally grown seasonal flowers
The beverage bar serves:
  • Espresso based drinks made using coffee beans roasted in Cheshire
  • Small batch teas blended in Greater Manchester
  • Award winning single origin hot chocolate
  • Milkshakes & Iced drinks 
  • Biscuits, cakes and tray bakes made in Lancashire
The Hive is dog friendly and easily accessible by car, foot, bicycle and public transport. See our tips below.

  • By Bicycle: We  have a Sheffield bicycle stand in our courtyard for you to use. It can hold 2 bicycles and it is covered by CCTV for extra peace of mind.
