Out from London for a Sunday drive, we were pleased to stumble on this apparently ancient hostelry and, as it was nearing lunchtime, decided to stop. Clearly a popular destination, the place was already hectic at noon, the bar staff not yet geared up hence very slow service for drinks. The pub also operates a pay on ordering system which... More

For a number of reasons we have not visited this Restaurant for a number of years. It has retained its 'rustic' atmosphere. We visited on a Wednesday evening which was quite busy. Menu is typical 'Pub Food' and lacks a little in sophisticated choices but, quality was good. Did not like the requirement to order and pay for food in... More

This has always been a popular place for me as an 18 year old through to my 60's. What has changed over the years are the owners but the food, and drink selection quality is excellent. The decor has not changed much in 50 years and the pub has a real atmosphere to be experienced in all seasons. Roaring fires... More

Visited after dinner for some dessert. Seems to be located in the middle of nowhere, more so when driving there at night. Despite the location, the place was crowded. It's really old, very charming and with a great sense of occasion. The desserts we had were better than average, but not outstanding. Staff were polite and friendly.

What a let-down! Called to book a table for 10 adults and two children under two a week before visit. Made clear that we needed two high chairs. This was confirmed and repeated by a member of staff over the phone. Arrived and a staff member informed us that they do not cater for children and they would "just have... More

The food at this pub is absolutely great and it's setting is gorgeous. The beer is also good and Sundy lunch is just great.

We had a really nice meal at the White Bear last night, which was a Sunday evening. Overall the experience was good, fairly reasonably priced and we will be coming back again. Staff were friendly and the service was quick. We found the service to be a bit too quick but that was probably because we arrived in the last... More

I have been visiting The White Bear for many years and the pub is as lovely as ever. However, the food today was a great disappointment. Grossly overpriced, no children's menu, long wait for the food and not of a good enough standard for the price when it eventually arrived. I will go there again but only for a drink... More
