We often call into the White Bear for lunch whilst shopping in town. The food is always excellent, wholesome and cooked very well by the Landlords wife. A lovely friendly couple. There are specials on every day and the steak and kidney pie was particularly good yesterday! The service is good and the restaurant cosy. We will go back again... More

We stayed over for the Devizes beer festival weekend at the White Bear. For such an old building the room was a great size, newly refurbished with a large shower room. The bedroom was lovely and light. As our room faced on to the road there was some noise at night from revellers returning home from the Beer Festival but... More

The White Bear is a delightful traditional English coaching Inn, with excellent food and accommodation. Located a short distance from Devizes Market Place and shops, the building dates from 1567 and is Grade II Listed, being a building of special historic merit within the town centre Conservation Area. I visit Devises annually and have stopped in many of the hotels... More

A warm and pleasant welcome on arrival, good food and plentiful (man size portions.) Very comfy bed and a well presented room. The shower was very invigorating in the newly installed en suite. Breakfast was also a plus.Will definitely be staying here again.

We stay in Devizes once a year and this is the best place we've stayed for many a year. Very friendly landlord and lady, good breakfast and evening meals, good sized room with a very large modern shower. And importantly for a pub, very nice beer!

We were given room 3, which was a nice size with a huge shower. We only had breakfast as they do not do an evening meal early in the week. The owners were very helpful sorting out where to park (there is no car park) and where to eat. Breakfast was ok, but didn't enjoy the coffee.

Lovely old pub in the centre of town. Regular landlady was away but her relief was very helpful and friendly despite being on her own. Room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. Breakfast was generous and freshly prepared. Ideal overnight stop on our 2 day walk down the canal from Pewsey to Bradford on Avon. Note: they don't do evening... More

A charming old pub set in the heart of Devizes and close to Avebury and other points of interest. Geoff and Fi were the perfect hosts and helpful in making my stay a pleasant one. Given the age and authenticity of the hotel, the room was comfortable and spacious with an excellent en suite. For anyone looking for a base... More

Really friendly pub. Great pub to go to whether you are a local or from out of town. Geoff and Fi make everybody welcome. Lovely Wadworths beer, expertly kept. Food is brilliant especially Sunday lunch, usually three meat and two veggie options with very generous portions. Don't miss the quiz/theme nights. Five stars for sure.

Charming old pub with excellent draft beer and cider and delightful landlady and landlord. Breakfast was good too. There seems to be a dearth of accommodation close to Avebury so we were pleased to find such a pleasant place to stay. Free wifi works in parts of the building including the bar.
