    I have been to the Bear many times. Whether it is an excellent pint of 6X in the rickety market bar where you can see the brewery from the window, traditional ham, eggs and chips for lunch or an informal dinner, the Bear never disappoints. On this occasion, it was a last minute early supper with relatives. We tested the... More

    Although I have not stayed at the bear I did spend a very pleasant few hours chilling in the bar/lounge area. I had lunch which was very tasty. It is the second time I have visited the bear and the 2nd time was just as good as the 1st. The staff are excellent especially Oliver and Charlie they both gave... More

    Very clean room, and quite cool on a very hot night. Comfortable bed. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Had a nice meal on the rear outdoor terrace which was inexpensive. Floors are old and creaky, but I think this all adds to the hotel's character

    Stayed at the Bear whilst on business, it was great to stay in a hotel with character rather than the usual corporate chains. My room was on the second floor, huge with a lovely bathroom overlooking the market square. Really loved the traditional feel with the original uneven floors. The Bar area and courtyard patio were both very pleasant and... More

    taking our own luggage upstairs and down - there is no lift - was of course a little difficult as we aren't as young as we once were. My husband managed to get us a room on the first floor, which compensated slightly for this. The room was large and clean ad the bathroom was good with shower over the... More

    Hotel very nice with on site parking. Check in great and room spacious with the up and down floors that you would expect in a hotel of this age. Bed very comfortable and bathroom had everything needed. Had to keep windows shut as noise from road and people outside would have kept me awake. Would stay again if in the... More

    Its a bit unfair to rate The Bear on the pies alone, but they really are good. However. so are the rooms, the rest of the food and the staff. The hotel is a lovely, very old and creaky building which makes you feel instantly at home. The location is ideal. Parking is limited although there are public parking options... More

    The bear provided a very good one-night stop over on the way to a wedding. The room was comfortable and quiet, the staff were very pleasant and helpful and the hotel had a warm character and appears to be a popular meeting and eating place in the town. Decent parking behind the hotel was a bonus.

    Enjoyed first class Sunday lunch in The Grill.....plentiful portions, well cooked and presented, served by professional waiter. A real treat. Highly recommend. Pleasant atmosphere, decent space between tables, no sense of rush. A good, all round experience.
