Ladies Wot Lunch

We are regular visitors to Alcester on a Monday and decided on this occasion to have lunch at the Bear. There is a good choice of food on the menu, all of which is reasonably priced. We took advantage of the Seniors menu - two courses for £8.45 and we were not disappointed. I had the Broccoli and... read more

We visited the Bear lunch time, the service was good, we were afforded a friendly welcome, the service was good and the food excellent. It was a very lovely way to spend a couple of hours, chatting and eating, in pleasant surroundings, without any hassle.

It's no surprise this pub is often pretty empty considering our experiences of what we assumed to be the management. Despite our efforts to be friendly and helpful towards them we were spoken to very unpleasantly - it felt like they were used to dealing with unfriendly customers, or maybe they just have no customer service skills. No class whatsoever.

Have enjoyed eating at The Bear for about the last 5 years on a regular basis but was very disappointed again today to find it was closed to the public due to a wedding reception being held there. This has happened so many times over the last 6 months that we will not be bothering to go there again. Funerals,... More

Reliable little place in small town. Food was well cooked an presented. I can't workout why it's cheaper for a pensioner than for me to earths same food. The pub was empty when we went. I wanted the meal deal advertised on the board outside but it's only available to people two years older than me! I don't think that's... More

Looked a good menu outside, only wanted sandwiches good choice, reasonably priced and served promptly with a nice side salad. In warm and comfortable surrounding. Will be going back again next time we are in Alcester.

We visited the lovely town of Alcester last weekend. It was a lovely day so we sat in the court yard. There was about 10 of us and we hadn't booked but still we were served fairly quickly and a wait didn't matter as we were catching up with news. The staff was very friendly and pleasant.
