Having not been back to the Dales for some time I was very much looking forward to my trip to Masham and it didn't disappoint in any way!! Picture postcard little town with a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We arrived in the morning as we wanted to get around both brewery tours and after stopping at the hotel before... More

Stayed earlier this month after eating here previously. Really pushed the boat out and stayed in the penthouse - does this have the wow factor! Huge windows to both sides with good views (and electric blinds ha ha) massive bath and walk-in shower, huge comfy bed, seating and quality working desk, little fridge with water and fresh milk, bath robes,...

After being invited to a shareholders cream tea on Wensleydale Railway we decided to stay for a couple of nights in the area and chose the White Bear. What an excellent find. Just off the Market Place in front of Theakstons brewery with a faint aroma of beer in the air. Lovely pub/hotel with large comfortable room and huge bed.... More

This is the second year we stayed at the White Bear, after enjoying the previous visit so much. The location of Masham is great, very peaceful, easy access to other bits of Yorkshire and two breweries in walking distance (both that run tours). The rooms are large and finished to a high standard, with quality bedding and towels, although there... More

Following excellent reviews, my wife and I had dinner here recently whilst staying down the road at Swinton Park. It was a Monday night and the restaurant was fully booked and so we ate in the bar area. There was an excellent choice of ales and something for everyone on the menu. We shared the Camembert to start then I... More

Masham speaks for itself and the White Bear is an absolute gem. I've lost count of the number of times I've stayed here, it has never disappointed, the rooms are individual, spacious and modern. The food is always excellent, staff, very friendly. Obviously it's Theakston's flagship pub and what a pub it is, try it, you'll keep going back!

I ate here last Saturday whilst on holiday in nearby Bedale. The food was absolutely gorgeous and very reasonably priced. My favourite part of the whole meal was the beer bread, made with the on-site brewery's own ale :) It was totally more-ish and seemingly they are asked for the recipe and 'doggy bags' all of the time. All-in-all, we... More

We love Masham and having stayed at the Kings Head several times previously chose to stay overnight at the White Bear for a change. We were not disappointed, the rooms were clean and spacious. The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. The guys were happy with the selection of ales on offer and the food was excellent. The sitting... More
