Loved everything about this classic hotel. Great room on the top floor - cosy and snug; Fabulous location - scenery and views are beautiful; scrummy breakfast - plenty of choice whatever your taste; friendly bar with good choice of ales and snacks; cream teas also available. They even have a bowling green.

The Bear is a rare haven of civilisation and taste – its always a pleasure to visit. The drinks are not cheap, but are very well made, and the atmosphere is up-scale whilst avoiding any whiff of golf-club-chic.

Very nice place to stay for few days. The view from some rooms is impressive on the valley . You just need to ask to be on the right side . Great place for people who love walks in free space in the green amount the free cows. Would be nice if the place would have reliable wifi.(works only some... More

After a long hike from Stroud to the Bear at Rodborough, a much needed lunch was called for. A lot of the tables inside were taken so we opted for one of the tables outside next to the croquet lawn. This is a lovely hotel, bar and restaurant with some great architecture and roofs. The menu was fairly standard gastro... More

We chose to have lunch in the garden, ordering from the bar. I asked about gluten free and the person taking my order asked me to go to reception to get a GF menu, reception sent me to the restaurant, the restaurant said I needed to go back to the bar and ask there. It's hard enough when you have... More

A great nights sleep, peace and quiet, large comfortable bed, with view of the common. Excellent evening meal beautifully served, it is a pleasure to eat in this dining room. Great breakfast, porridge just perfect, as were the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and the egg royal. We love the quirky corridors and intimate lounge and cosy bar. We look... More

Had a fabulous lunch at The Bear of Rodborough with my son Justin and daughter-in-law Nikki over from Perth, Australia. Great service, fantastic food and the very best surroundings - so classy and comfortable. We cannot wait to return.

I visited the hotel for one night on a business meeting. Rooms were clean and the king size bed was comfy. Staff were all polite and approachable. I would have liked more vegetarian choice on menu. Portions are a little small for all dishes. But the food quality was great! As we were there for business meeting we were all... More

I made a return visit to The Bear this last weekend and upon arriving I had been given a complimentary room upgrade which made a great start to the weekend. From the single room that I had booked I was given a large double room outside of the main building. The room was spacious and comfortable with all the usual... More
