Excellent Food and value for Money. My partner and I visit the Bear Inn on a regular basis, mostly for Sunday lunch. Colin and his team never fail in producing an excellent Sunday lunch along with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. I would certainly recommend anyone visit and experience this for themselves. First Class!

The food here is excellent value and is always cooked beautifully. Its very rare you find a fillet steak with homemade chips and sauce for around £15! Service is always prompt and friendly. Would especially recommend the Sunday carvery, always a choice of 4 meats and the gravy is amazing!

Had an amazing meal today in the Bear Inn. Fabulous food as usual, great service, very friendly.

I highly recommend this place to go whether it be for a Sunday carvery lunch, an evening meal or a... More

The food was perfect and plently of it, could not be faulted at all, in fact we went back the following day instead of going somewhere else. The... More

I won't repeat what others have said, but this place is a real find. Superb carvery, and Colin isn't stingy with the portions, and you are encouraged to have a slice of everything if you have trouble choosing. You can have your beef either well done or rare (how rare is that, 'scuse the pun!). Desserts are not normally my... More
