Popped in with friend for an evening meal, had fish cakes starter (not always a popular choice however this was lovely) then Cajun chicken and sweet potato... This was so nice, I'm sure it had crunchy cheese chips too.. I really enjoyed it. I finished with meringue with fruits and cream...lovely, even if it did fill me up. The service... More

Landlord was a really unwelcoming character. Was rude and downright nasty with the children. He didn't want us to pay by card despite spending a fair bit on lunches. Wouldn't visit again didn't feel welcomed at all, he really wasn't bothered about us being there at all

I stayed at The Bear recently and throughly enjoyed my stay, staff were helpful and friendly, and I had a great room overlooking the square at the front. Breakfast was superb with lots of choice and room service was quick and efficient. I also thoughly enjoyed dinner on my first evening there and felt my stay represented good value for... More

This certainly is not a 120 pound a night hotel, but just a step up from a B&B. Dirty and outdated bathroom with a peeling ceiling and stained wall paper in the bedroom. Good breakfast, though. And right in the heart of Devizes.

I booked two rooms for the same night and the same price. One turned out to be large and with a lovely view. The other was cramped with a view of a junk-strewn flat roof just outside the window. The hotel charged exactly the same price for each room and showed no interest in being more equitable when we complained.... More

Generally, a very comfortable hotel with good overall standards. The breakfast was excellent on all three occasions sampled and the quality of ingredients was first rate. The only downside was that the room service could have been better. Annoying that toiletries were not replaced after use and the waste bin was not emptied once during my stay.

As part of a local business group I often meet in the bar at the bear for an informal committee meeting. It has a nice quite bar which suits our needs so when we needed a venue for a larger regional meeting it was the obvious choice. Firstly the positives - as there were certainly more of them: the room... More
