The staff were friendly and helpful. The meal was a carvery and it was delicious . There was a choice of meat and a very good selection of vegetables all cooked to perfection . The dessert menu was good and the lemon meringue pie was yummy! Good value. We are going back!

Stopped in just for a meal, so there weren't many people in the place, but for all that it still had a nice atmosphere. The landlord was a really pleasant geezer, and the beer was just right - obviously kept well and at exactly the right temperature. (How many meals are ruined by ice-cold Bitter. Stop it, we're not Americans!)... More

A lovely choice of 3 meats and numerous vegetables. Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was very good. This is the first time I have had Sunday Lunch here and would return again.

4 of us had our Girls Lunch at this charming pub/restaurant. The welcome was very friendly, the service excellent. The food was very good indeed, satisfying the vegetarian, the fish fancier and two who love chicken dishes. The desserts were yummy and the coffee very tasty. The cost of the meals were very reasonable. We will certainly return.

We had lunch here on Thursday 12th of March and found it most enjoyable. The seating area in both bar and restaurant is spacious and the overall décor is one of cosiness and comfort. The waitress service was very good and the meal was excellent and good value. There is a main menu, a chef's choice and a carvery. The... More

First time at the black bear.... And all in all I found it to be a bit of a disappointment.... Just want to point out before I start that I couldn't fault the service. We ordered drinks and they came promptly. The carvery is where my disappointment spurred from. We were greeted by a pleasant young fella who was polite,... More

For the past 6 months since moving to this area the Black Bear has been our 'local' . We have been delighted with the consistent good service and well cooked and presented meals .There is a regular menu which is more than adequate to suit most tastes and also 'chefs specials ' which provide an even better choice .

Returned to the Black Bear after previous slating the cuisine on a previous visit. We had a party of 14 this time and pre booked the menu. Everybody enjoyed their fantastic meals, everything was piping hot and the sweets were just delicious, and served on time. The waitress was very efficient, pleasant and was always on hand to assist.
