The owners have clearly got a good eye for decor and my room above the pub did not disappoint. Opening the door you certainly get a 'wow' factor. The double room was huge and extremely well appointed with lots of extra thoughtful touches. There was a desk & chair, full length mirrors, flat screen television, large wardrobes, tea, coffee &...

Fantastic pub in a lovely town, great host and the pies are the best ever tasted. The rooms are lovely, characterful and well-appointed. We had a great time and can't wait to go back. Philip and Kevin have done a fantastic job. Really can't praise them enough!

We had a lovely couple of days here . Room was beautiful. Loved the idea of breakfast in the room ie cornflakes, breakfast bars or porridge and a completely stocked fridge ... would highly recommend .

Nice place with friendly and efficient staff. Food okay (my fish and chips were a bit on the greasy side but acceptable). Could do without dogs being allowed inside but that's just my feeling, others might disagree.

Had a great time here last night. The pies were very good, the staff friendly and the carols around the piano excellent. Small, big appetites and coeliacs catered for. A really good atmosphere. We'll be back.

My only experience so far at The Bear Inn is for a Sunday lunch on 12th October but it really is one of the best Sunday lunches I have eaten "out" and with such reasonable prices. Beautifully cooked in every respect - meat/veg (not under or over cooked) and lovely roast potatoes. My only comment is that even choosing the... More

My idea of heaven, the pies really are first class and the choice of real ciders will satisfy the most hard core cydrons. The selection of pies is amazing and though they take proper and real time to cook you will not be disappointed. Worth booking in advance if you don't want to wait. The pub is nicely restored, very... More

I stayed at The Bear Inn 2 nights ago for 1 night. The town is picture perfect and the Inn is lovely. The pies in the bar/restaurant are amazing! The guy who was working behind the bar was helpful and friendly however, they needed more staff as he was acting as waiter/barman/concierge/glassy/ etc all by himself and was run off... More

I recently stayed at the Bear inn with my fiancé as we wanted a w/e in Bath, but not at the prices that were being charged in the city centre, the inn was clean and tidy and the staff very friendly. We stayed in room 1 and was very impressed with the standard of the room, esp for the price.... More
