Me and my family recently spent a week in the lovely village of Stillington and saw in our cottage visitors book that The White Bear Inn was highly recommended and soon found out why. From the beer, of which there was a great variety, to the food and customer service it really was a top restaurant/pub. We ended up eating... More

Visited on a bank holiday Monday. They were serving roasts but we opted for salmon, steak and ale pie, and the lamb henry. Table service was just right, they didn't pester but we didn't have to wait to order either. The food was incredible, as were the portions. I've never eaten so much lamb in one sitting! No service on... More

Excellent food and service. The roasts are really good and vegetables plentiful and never over cooked. Starters and puddings if you can manage them are yummy. Still don't know how they do it at the price but glad they do. Highly recommended.

We decided to half the sarnies so we could each try. Mine was covered in gravy. so a little bit messy. But everything was fabulous. The staff... More

Good beer, good pub food (the haddock and chips was superb), lovely friendly staff and a great landlord who made us feel really welcome. What more could you want from a village pub.

Busy pub & restaurant....we were shown to a table quickly and served politely. Our fish pie and venison steak arrived in good time & were really nice. Would recommend this inn.
