Super pub in central part of Devizes. Mostly if not exclusively Wadworth Ale which is not my favourite brewery but the Old Timer was very nice. Great atmosphere, good service and hope it continues to do well.

£75 for a night b+b was not worth it. The cooked breakfast was utterly dire, and the rooms/bar were a little scruffy. Good choice of real ales, so for a drink was OK, but closed early in the evening. It was also difficult to find and there is no parking - you have to find your own.

The food was excellent hot and a large choice, the pub was friendly, warm with a traditional feel about the place. The accommodation is welcoming and has been newly refurbish making it combatable. Fiona and Geoff made us very welcome they both... More

Homely place to stay. Not posh, but it has character. Very friendly. Does the job. Breakfast is perfectly OK. It's all very authentic. And a nice change from the "plastic" hotel chains. Real place. Real people. Excellent location near the centre of things. And great value for money. I recommend it!

What a lovely location for this little gem of a pub. Brilliant location for exploring devizes and surrounding areas. Landlord and landlady had great local knowledge that they were more than happy to share. Meals are very reasonably priced and tasted delicious, nothing was too much trouble which was great as we were travelling with children. Can't recommend it enough.

We had a beautiful room, very spacious with a really comfy bed, and an amazing shower with room for two! The White Bear (which I believe is the oldest pub in Devizes?) is a truly stunning building, it's like stepping back in time, a real delight. Breakfast was beautifully cooked, and served in the quaint dining room, which feels really... More

Great 2-night break. Landlord and landlady made us very welcome. The room was bright, airy and very clean. Watched local carnival from our bedroom window. Landlady cooked a lovely breakfast and she was full of local knowledge. A lovely stay....and would consider a revisit. The pub itself was lovel and full of character. Low beams. Oldest pub in Devizes.

Good food and great ambiance with a friendly staff made it a good idea to stop for lunch open till 3:00 when many shops closed at 2:00 it's the oldest pub, dating back to the 17th century. Somewhat limited beer on tap selection through.

Mrs LP and myself, along with the older, male, LP junior, were getting desperate for somewhere to stay in Devizes on the bank holiday Saturday, as we had a major family event to celebrate (my mum's 80th). With nothing available through the normal internet sites, Mrs LP resorted to the old fashioned telephone. It transpired there are two rooms in... More
