We were attending a family event near Esher with our son and daughter-in-law and their three young children, and The Bear provided an excellent overnight stay. The three rooms were pleasant and well equipped (fresh milk in the fridge for tea and coffee was a welcome addition to the normal hotel fare), the staff very pleasant and helpful, a late... More

Excellent service. Very friendly staff. The manager, Chris, couldn't have been more helpful. Food was excellent and a brilliant selection of craft beers. I can honestly say that this was the best value for money hotel I've ever stayed at.

I stayed here this week for one night. The room I had was quite small but big enough for what I needed. The bed was comfy and although it's quite a busy bar downstairs there was no noise disruption in the room. Breakfast was pretty good as well & not over priced. I didn't have an evening meal here so... More

Visited this pub on the way to the races. We ordered a pint of Guinness and they couldn't pour it for toffee. It was half head and half pint. When asked to top it up the staff were very rude and initially refused to top it up. When pointed out we were paying for it they topped it up but... More

Called here for a meal and drinks during this years Volksworld Show at Sandown Park Racecourse. We all ordered food which came very quickly. The food was very well presented. We had a load of Peronni's & had a good time, the atmosphere is excellent and it can get very busy.

The bear has a wide selection of beer and wine. A beautiful selection of food from sandwiches to a hot meal. We ate a sandwich it was huge served with chips and side salad.

Nice location, breakfast was odd - had cereal and yogurt but not as a buffet so you had to ask without really knowing the choice! Room was fairly plain, bathroom needed a good make over - wallpaper coming off the wall and everything just a bit outdated. quite expensive for what you get
