I've had lunch at the White Bear several times. The location is stunning - beautiful, rolling country side, just a short drive from South London. The pub itself is old - 16th century - with low oak beams, old furniture and decorations, and a nice fire. The beer is great - the real ale selection is first rate. The food... More

No, we keep coming back because it's friendly, welcoming, homely, dog-friendly...and because the food is simply excellent. In probably a dozen visits over the last couple of years we've never had a poor experience here. We bring friends, family, anyone and the result is always the same. A pleasant meal in excellent surroundings, reasonably priced. What more could you ask... More

Been to white bear several times now and it never fails to impress. The drive to the pub itself is beautiful especially in summers. Booze is reasonably priced and they have good variety of food for adults and kids. Portion sizes are quite big. They do an excellent BBQ in summers.

After not being able to find anywhere reasonable priced to spend New Year's Eve with Friends we booked a table for the White Bear. We have spent many a good evening here, the food is always excellent and very well priced. The decor is old and original with open fires and candles. The staff are always polite and friendly and...

Came here for a last minute meal with family. The menu was just ok ... Had the steak and ale pie ... But it wasn't what I expected... No soft pastry ... Although the lady did tell me it wouldn't have pastry all around ... But not only was it not a pie in the traditional way it was so... More

This is my fourth experience this year to the BP and I've yet to be dissapointed. This restaurant / pub / Hotel which is part of the Nelson Group (I think) also runs the Fishpool Inn, which is not too far from here and again brilliant. Whatever their business model is, its certainly working. Both places are consistently good food... More

We used to live close by and would always be a great place to go for a celebration meal with family or just a quick lunch with the wife. Now we live a little further away we can't make it as often but when we do we love it. The food is great and the best lamb shank around! Friendly... More

Our daughter recommended The White Bear, so we booked to meet up for lunch with some dear friends. What a pretty restaurant set in the Countryside. Beautifully decorated for the festive season, with a roaring fire. The warm and friendly welcome from the staff was much appreciated, and our meal was so very good. We shall return in the Spring,...

We had a family 80th birthday Sunday lunch here last weekend, and 14 of us sat down, albeit on two separate tables, and had a wonderful meal. We had a waited assigned to us, as you usually order at the bar. He couldn't have been more helpful and entertaining. Our meals arrived surprisingly quickly for such a large group, and... More
