Eaten here lot's of times and it's never failed to disappoint. It's good old fashioned pub grub and doesn't break the bank to eat there. Whilst you wouldn't say it was fine dining it's certainly one to visit if you have kids. They always make the kids feel special and go out of their way to accomodate any food specific... More

It's twelve months since we were in the area and last visited The White Bear when we were disappointed then after many enjoyable meals so we thought we would try it again. We were disappointed again although we couldn't get a seat in the restaurant which was our own fault for not booking, we were offered a table in the... More

We spent a very enjoyable evening at The White Bear, Stillington. The place has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. Our food was excellent, plenty to choose from, we settled on Whitebait & Pate to start, followed by Gammon and absolutely the best Lasagne I have had in a restaurant, proper chips too and all...

My wife and I were fortunate to get a table booked for our favourite eating pub the White Bear at Stillington, a place where we are never disappointed. As well as the normal evening menu, a special Valentines-themed three course menu was on offer and given that our table was stren with decorative hearts and rose petals we chose from... More

We had a delicious family Sunday lunch for 7 of us on the run up to Christmas. Prawn cocktails were tasty and plentiful, well cooked roast beef and roast turkey with lots of vegetables and all served hot. Fantastic children's meals and our 3 younger members were made very welcome. Excellent service and friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Visiting the York area my wife and I were recommended to visit this pub for our evening meal . Having experienced many recommendations in the past and decided it was down to the individuals taste we decided to risk this venue and travelled to find the pub and risk if it suited our expectations . Boy o Boy we were... More
