The Bear Inn is a very relaxed and welcoming pub set within the Suffolk village of Beyton. The food is excellent and the staff are really friendly and pleasant adding to the overall experience. I would highly recommend the Bear, and look forward to our next visit

We can join the long list of good reviews for this pub with great quality food. Well kept and interesting beers to start with, short but adequate wine list and a menu to suit all tastes, including veggies. In fact, they're quite happy to make something from scratch if someone wishes - you don't get that everywhere. For me, a... More

This pub was completely off our radar, and we thought we knew all the good places to eat round BurySt Edmunds. The menu is different from a lot of pub food because it is more imaginative. We really enjoyed our menu choices and thought it was good value. Service was attentive and friendly. If we had any criticisms it would... More

We went for Sunday lunch after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and I must say the reputation is well deserved! We hadn't booked but that wasn't a problem and we had a drink in the garden before going through to the restaurant. The food was fantastic, the staff relaxed and friendly and the overall experience was very impressive. My wife had... More

Our family just loves this pub! We found it originally as its half way between us. Really great food, best gravy I've tasted in ages, and a really great service. We're not the easiest family to feed with vegetarian and gluten free members, however nothing is too much trouble and they even made gluten free bread especially for us. Food... More

We went for lunch on Saturday. This is exactly how a village pub should be run. Amazing food coupled with a friendly welcome in comfortable surrounding, we ate in the bar while enjoying the old boys having their lunchtime pint. The sea bass on basil mash and sauce vierge was out standing as was the haddock and chips with fabulous... More

Booked here for a celebratory meal after not being able to get into Maison Bleu and consulting Trip Advisor and was surprised to see The Bear high up on the list. Always thought the pub is nice and very friendly with a roaring fire in winter but with no frills. However the food was absolutely superb with the service friendly... More

Friendly welcome made you feel good. Service and food were just what we wanted for our Sunday roast. Plus good value for money.

My partner and I visited on a Friday night. The pub is cosy & welcoming as were the staff. We had three courses (not intentional) but I defy anyone not to expand their belt buckle here. The food was as good as the reputation suggested. We started with the parfait & terrine both were delicious. On to the main event,... More

Went on a Friday lunchtime. You can choose to go into the bar or the restaurant. We went into the restaurant section and were met with a friendly greeting. The beer was good and my wife enjoyed her soft drink. The food was excellent. We were offered both the bar (snack) menu and the main menu. Both menus look good.... More
