visited on the spur of the moment. Food the best I've had in a long time - definitely not your run of the mill pub grub here, it lives up to its name of a gastro pub. Brie wrapped in Parma ham - a real treat, breast of lamb just fell apart on the plate & sticky toffee pud was... More

My husband and I were treated to dinner at The White Bear tonight by my very kind Aunt-in-law [!], and what a treat is was! We arrived ahead of the rest of our party and settled down in very comfy sofas: my husband quaffing a pint of a jolly good beer and me happily sipping a piping hot cup of... More

4 of us visited this fantastic little pub, excellent choice of specials on the board!! In fact we all chose from the specials! Nice atmosphere, clean , nice music, good service from the girls waiting on! Worth a visit! Not cheap but quality, and we don't mind paying for quality!

lived near the White bear for years and never eaten here as looks like a old boys pub for local bar flys! But I'm very glad I did, the pub was warm cosy and comfortable, but the food was the gem! All 4 of us had the most wonderful food and were totally indulgent! Service was great and staff friendly... More

We went here for a family gathering just before Xmas 2014 and had a really good meal, real ale and cosy atmosphere. Every course was good with very reasonably priced wine and drinks from the bar. If you haven't been here before then you really should give it a try I doubt if you will be disappointed.

Visited with the wife and in laws ... The place oozes charm and immediately gives you a nice relaxed feeling. The menu was varied and gave you plenty to consider. When the food arrived it was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The service was good... Attentive but not pestering Will definitely be going back!

We came here for a family birthday celebration. We all live locally and heard good things but have never stepped in the building before. There was an excellent selection of home cooked food at a reasonable price. The staff were very helpful and we had a great time. I would recommend for a special occasion.

I visited The White Bear in October 2014 and was very impressed with the whole package. The location is very nice, it avoids the hustle & bustle of busy town/ city centres and lends itself to the lovely atmosphere created within. I went on a date but it seemed to be suitable for all occasions - family, friends and more!... More

My wife and I ate here a couple of weeks ago we have eaten here maybe 3 or 4 times a year over the last 15 to 20 years, we should go more often. We must try harder. The food was perfect as always, meat of the highest quality, wonderful sauces and superb friendly service. The wine list is pretty... More
