Good pub food with a wide choice on the menu supplemented by a specials board. Pleasant staff and friendly service Good choice of real ales compliment the food, obviously popular with the locals.

We were staying near Stillington and called at the White Bear by chance. We were just in time for the Prime Time (early bird) menu. The food was excellent, with generous portions, the place was very busy so the atmosphere was very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely eat there again if we are in the...

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

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

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
