We called in just on the off chance of of a late sunday lunch(5pm)the welcome was so friendly from all the staff. I had the roast beef which was excellent. My partner had the bacon chop with cranberry and camembert topping which was extreemly tasty and well cooked. Alround a good find. Well worth a visit again.

Wonderful value for money when you go for the early doors - and the same goes for normal times - booking recommended.

Despite the restaurant being fully booked, the lovely staff found us a table in the bar, provided attentive, prompt, and friendly service. An interesting selection, not what I'd expect to find on a normal 'pub grub' menu, decent portions of piping hot, well presented food, the hand cut chips are a must! We couldn't have asked for a better experience,... More

We arrived 5 minutes before food was due to finish and we were still welcomed. We had a Sunday lunch plus pudding. Food was good and plentiful. Staff were very helpful despite our late arrival

There was a good selection of food and lots of specials. Everything thing is "pub grub", not gastro, but that's what we enjoy, simple food cooked well cooked. Our party had roast pork loin, salmon, fish and chips and chicken pasta. Nice ale too. The waitresses were lovely. Each of us would visit again. (they just need some coffee!)

We met up with family from Scotland who were on holiday in the area and booked 8 of us in for a very late Sunday Lunch. Staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive. Two meats Sunday lunch was excellent. Everything served hot, great choice of vegetables. Very well priced. Meals served quickly and efficiently. Will definitely revisit when next in the area.

We called in to the White Bear on the off-chance of getting a table which we did - the last one! The welcome from the Bar and Restaurant Staff was really friendly and attentive. We settled just for a main course, my guest having the Herb Crusted Poached Salmon (very tasty), whilst I had the Home-made Chicken Kiev which was... More
