Had a lovely lunch here. The bar area is nicely presented with an old worldish, rich charm. We were running late but the staff were great and still took a food order from us. The food was served in good time and was nicely presented. Steak and ale pie was a bit dubious, I would say it was more of... More

Had a very pleasant stay in the bear hotel, the staff were all very polite & helpful, the food was very good & the rooms are clean & tidy ๐Ÿ˜Š The bed was extremely comfortable but a little high ha ha. It's a very old but very quaint hotel & I will definitely stay there again ๐Ÿ‘.

Attractive place, with a relaxed feel. Before dinner we nipped to the bar but the barman never ventured to our end so we eventually went to him where he explained that as he was working on his own he wouldn't serve at the end we'd been standing. Either that or he just didn't notice us standing there. I wonder.... Anyway,... More

The restaurant was lovely in an old cellar room, very comfortable, nice location. The food was very good and the menu selection was varied, something for everyone. The only thing that let them down was the slow service, there were only two other people dining when we visited but it took over 2 hours for a three course meal. The... More

When we stayed at the bear we had the Amex cottage. This is a self contained small cottage with its own small lounge and kitchen. There are two bedrooms, the master is a good size with television. The other bedroom is very small and really only suitable for a small child. The cottage is only about 100 yards from the... More

we only visited for food. the food was nice however the service was quite poor. 5 were eating but it took about 20 mins for the food to come and we had to ask for cutlery admittedly they were busy but you would expect everyone to be served together. once we finished they didn't come to clear the table. it's...

We had a wonderful welcome and a lovely meal. My mother, who was the birthday girl, was given a complimentary glass of wine which was a nice surprise. We all had the pork loin with mustard mash which was delicious. Very interesting dining room and full of antiques. Will definitely visit again. The Bear ticks all the boxes!
