We were advised to visit Devizes on our Cotswold tour by the TripAdvisor members so we stopped at the white Bear for lunch. The pub is on a good setting, the food was lovely, very reasonably priced and service was great. I will visit the white bear again on my next trip as Deviizes is a lovely village worth visiting.

We called in to Devizes by chance on the way to Bath. The White Bear was the first place we saw and so we took a chance and went in. Food was good and very reasonably priced. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. Search this place out for good value!

We stayed here when in Devizes for dinner, and had room 5 (double en suite) - a lovely room, newly refurbished and brilliant for the money! The room had everything we needed, and my only complaint was it was baking hot in the morning (my fault, they did tell me how to turn the heat down :-). I'd definitely stay... More

We stayed two nights in the White Bear in July and had an absolutely lovely stay. Our room was cozy and comfortable (even during an unusual heat wave!), breakfasts were perfectly prepared and very generous, and the beer was great! Fiona and Geoff made us feel right at home. When we come back to Devizes—and we will—this is where we'll... More

We stayed at the White Bear for 2 nights on our way to London. The rooms in this pub have been redone and our room, which accommodated 2 adults and 2 kids was more than adequate, had plenty of light and a beautiful new bathroom. We were very comfortable and enjoyed a delicious breakfast cooked by Fiona every morning. This... More

A lovely place to stay with delightfull home made traditional english food! Nice beer selection and cozy athmosphere, it made me feel like at home. And because I'm from Bulgaria, one of the evening we got a traditional dish from my country! Thank you Fiona, thank you Geoff!

After a long morning of driving, we chose this quaint little pub to have lunch. We were welcomed by a friendly woman, who we later found out was the recent owner. Travelling from Australia, my husband was not familiar with the different beers. He was most generously offered a few samples before deciding on one to purchase. The food was... More

Often call in here on my way around Devizes. Great little pub, lovely staff and great beer. Very central to town centre, opposite the Castle Hotel. Highly recommended. I will certainly visit again and again!

A traditional pub steeped in history and ghostly tales,the warmth and welcome enhanced by Fiona and Geoff's hospitality. Traditional 16th century interior warmed by wood burning fires and a welcome from locals willing to share their tales. Bedrooms were large and spaces with modern en suite shower and toilet facilities with every requirement. Freshly cooked home made delicious range of... More
