We are a young couple just exploring the town and looking for somewhere to have lunch. This place is ideal, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food was lovely, very hot and plentiful. Very reasonably priced. There is also a good selection of local Wadworth Brewery Ales. Highly recommend and we would come again if in the area... More

Lovely friendly pub and normally we have a great Sunday lunch but this time we left a bit disappointed. We waited for ages for our meal and when it arrived the beef was a bit chewy and there was just enough veg for two but there were four of us which made it a bit awkward when dishing up with... More

A place that I would not recommend to anyone. The whole dinner was microwaved. The potatoes & stuffing were rock hard & there was no presentation. Ideal if you're a dog lover as they allow them in the pub.

The White Bear is a pub which runs a small B+B. The pub is quaint and serves excellent Wadworth ales. The couple running the pub and B+B, Fiona and Geoff, are extremely friendly and make you feel very welcome. Fiona cooks an excellent English breakfast and has now started cooking evening meals on top of lunches. We didn't try the... More

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.
