First visit

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.

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

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. Most of the... More

We called in at the village of Alcester to dine at another eaterie but unfortunately it wasn't open on a Tuesday so we had a re-think and decided to take a chance on The Bear Hotel. The staff were very warm and welcoming, the menu was varied and reasonably priced. My husband chose the gammon and I had the spinach/... More

We had a very lovely evening with good food, until we were chased down the street and rudely accused of not paying for our meal, after having paid and leaving a tip! Received no apology, definitely needs improvements on customer service!

We regularly pop in to The Bear for lunch when we go to Alcester. Food is reasonably priced, home cooked and always piping hot. The staff are very helpful, friendly and polite especially Adam who gives first class service. We will continue to give our custom.

Had a meal there recently.... No atmosphere at all pretty sterile..... Food was ok nothing special in my book. Won't be eating there again. On a cold evening it's a good idea to turn some heating on! Was cold inside.
