My husband and two teenage daughters brought me to The Bear for Mother's Day, and what a treat! I could have eaten any one of the starters and mains: had chicken liver parfait with homemade chutney, he had ham terrine all looked fab and tasted as good too! Then he had sirloin and I had roast pork, both with crispy... More

We were going to a wedding reception and thought we would try for a last minute meal. Very glad we did! The starter was bootiful followed by a perfect rib eye steak and trimmings. Downside, there was no room left for a sweet. Staff were friendly and helpful and it was well worth being a little late for the reception

Our first time eating in our local pub. Food was strangely mixed. Starters were excellent, ranking with some of the most expensive restaurants we have visited including Michelin starred ones, but the mains were closer to pub grub, not unpleasant but not the creativity that the starters had. Puddings were somewhere between these. Service was fine and friendly, surroundings were... More

I had phoned and reserved a table for Valentines Night and looked forward to this after the good reviews, and due to illness I was going to request a table for 2 instead of 4, so I phoned back approx. 3 days before to be told that no table had been booked and that they would phone back and see...

We were really looking forward to having our Sunday lunch here and weren't disappointed. Unfortunately neither of us was really well enough to fully appreciate the food and the little restaurant was very noisy, so we ate up and left. We both had the soup which was very nice but I wondered about the necessity to have it garnished with... More

Came for Sunday lunch with five adults and a two year old. The food was fantastic with beautifully cooked beef roast dinner, crispy roasts and perfectly cooked vegetables. The starters and desserts were just as excellent and the staff were friendly, efficient and cared. My daughter had fish, chips and peas which were crispy and very tasty. We will definitely... More

Visited The Bear on Feb 16th for a Sunday lunch and can report that their Sunday lunch is superb. The vegetarians in our party had plenty of choice and were full of praise for their dishes & the meat eaters said the beef and pork could not be faulted. John & Juliette were the perfect welcoming hosts and the wherry... More

The best Sunday lunch we have had. Perfect service and exquisite food in a lovely family run village pub. Great idea on fantastic taster size deserts and you will want them all once you have tasted.Great value for money.
