I was recommended this Hotel as we were going to a wedding nearby. Having looked at the website it looked a very nice Hotel & at £80 per night thought it would be a ideal place to stay. But when we arrived & had to enter through the back door (the only one !! ) to check in, it looked... More

We stayed in one of the self catering cottages over the weekend. The bed was comfortable and the location quiet. However, the kitchen facilities were very limited -there was only one mug between three people - and there is no wardrobe. The extra bed is an air mattress. Breakfast was average. Overall I felt the price of £115 per night... More

The bar/restaurant area was like the antiques roadshow...a strange and facinating collection. Room was adequate but could have done with a bit of updating, the shower room was good. Great location in the middle of nowhere but the sat nav was defeated so relied on a friendly local. Maybe some signage at the nearest crossroads perhaps?

Choice of Beef (rare, med or well done), turkey, lamb, pork with plenty of vegetable, boiled, mashed and roasted potatoes and yorkshire pud. Excellent quality, piping hot and plenty of meat given (sometimes carvery's aren't that generous with their portions). Beautiful view. Two vegetarian options (brie, cranberry, hazlenut and mushroom wellington and squash and beetroot fritter). My husband wasn't hungry... More

Costs twice as much as some chain restaurant carveries but is 5 times better. Best selection of beautiful roasts including rare,medium and well done beef. Chef serving meat is friendly and rightly proud of the product. Good slices of the meat without the conscious assessing of portion control you find elsewhere. Have been a number of times over the years.... More

We come here several times a year with family. The carvery is very good although on this visit the roast potatoes weren't up to their usual standard. Desserts are generous and a good choice. Sunday lunch is carvery only but if you visit at any other time their menu offers a great selection.

We made a late decision to visit the Peak District over the Bank Holiday and found every hotel we tried either too expensive or full. We eventually found the Bear. It was a little further away from where we wanted to stay but it looked ok. The stay as a whole was mixed. We did enjoy our stay but with... More

Met family for Sunday lunch. Very limited choice of starter and desserts to start with. The service was poor, one young waitress walked off mid order! The carvery choice was lovely, meat of good quality however, all the veggies in our group (who only shared the veggie option in common) suffered "consequences" the day following the meal. Worrying. Desserts were... More

4 of us went to eat at The Bear on Thursday evening with a little trepidation after reading the reviews....... however we all had really good meals and the service was excellent we will be back. The pub itself is very quaint and the views from the beer garden are stunning.

This used to be one of the best places in the Belper area to go and eat. I had not been for a meal for at least three or four years but because of its esteemed standing as a place to go for great meals and special occasions we booked a table and went for an evening meal. I was... More
