Having not eaten here for a few months you always wonder if the standard will have changed. Although it is hard to imagine the food has got even better. We had the Sunday lunch and it was superb, the meet cooked beautifully and gravy to die for and all served piping hot. The service is friendly and efficient and the... More

Booked last Friday night for my boy friend's birthday. The food was fantastic and considering the other half is a coeliac the choice was quite extensive and the staff were very warm and it was all soooo reasonably priced. Definitely would go again. Only thing is that the surroundings are a bit Spartan, could do with cosying up (with the... More

Husband and I had another lovely meal at the Bear on Friday. It was game night, so the menu was slightly different to the regular one - the Bear runs themed cuisine nights quite often, always nice for a change. I had poached duck egg, spinach and hollandaise to start - simply divine. Husband had scallops, which looked great and... More

As a coeliac eating out can be a challenge. This place was brilliant though. The food was just lovely - simple things done very well - and it was a treat to be looked after by people who clearly understood my needs. The atmosphere was very welcoming, relaxed and pleasantly unpretentious.

The food was very nice and the service was excellent. There were 7 of us and we all had a different choice of food and it was all very good. I felt that there wasn't any atmosphere in the bar and that would be my only negative point.

We had a delicious meal yesterday. My starter of sardines on grilled focaccia was spot on. The grilled rump of lamb with figs and herb polenta was perfectly cooked. Proper seasonal vegetables too. It was as good a meal as we have had anywhere. We're lucky to live in the same village!

We ate at a number of pubs within five or six miles of our stay in the area, and concluded that the Bear is offering a higher level of cooking and better ingredients than we would have expected. nice people running the place, and they deserve to be busy. It's 'real' food and we liked it. You get what you... More

We've been in Suffolk for a few days now, and eaten at several supposedly high class restaurants. All have been a disappointment but this one -- here, the ingredients were good, the veg was fresh, and everything was very well prepared. Nothing was over cooked or over sauced, and even the simple things were homemade, such as the applesauce, the... More

The pub is a solid late-Victorian(?) building situated on the edge of Beyton, fairly close to an A14 junction. We were welcomed and shown to our table by a cheerful man. The restaurant covers two small rooms, perfectly pleasant but not much character. Our supper was very good and well presented, and served by a friendly and efficient young woman.... More
