I wanted to book Sunday lunch for 2 for our Wedding anniversary at 2.00ish but there was no availability so we visited at 12.30. By 1.00 it was about two thirds full and the waiter said lots of people reserve tables and just don't turn up. How rude! Anyway they missed out. I've never been here before and came on... More

My wife loves America and likes to celebrate their Thanksgiving Day. Usually we do this at home but this year we saw that the Bear was laying on a Thanksgiving menu. So we decided to give it a try. We invited our daughter and one of our grandsons to join us. The Thanksgiving main course was served as a sharing... More

Came here for lunch had delicious fresh bread to start then one of the best fillet steaks I have had in a long time The bernaise sauce was homemade and better than I could make it. Fish and chips looked good and they had crayons for the kids. If in the area well worth a visit...

had a nice Sunday lunch. Nice appetizers, a bit creative. Huge main courses portions. Good leg of lamb, even if too cooked for me (any luck for pink and grey...not just grey). Staff was very pleasant and attentive...the only thing was the distance between the benches and the table : too far apart. Otherwise, we'll go back for sure.

We visited this restaurant most nights while in Cobham, the menu was large selection was great and had something different each night. The food was hot, portions were large and prices were reasonable. Service was great both indoors and out on the back patio.

I went for Sunday lunch with my husband and my daughter on my birthday. The service was slow from the beginning. After allocating us at the table nobody came to take our order for a long time. Waiting time for our food was also long and I didn't like what I got. First of all the meal for my daughter... More

Food venues for me need to make an impression! On my first ever visit, at a friend's suggestion, I would never go back! Had the mackerel salad - tiny squares of beetroot, a few orange segments, completely uninspiring green salad - at a cost of £14.00! The pan-fried mackerel was not well cooked and full of bones! Don't bother -... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the Bear, it gives off the image of a pleasant, comfortable gastro pub. The bar staff were fine, however, we were sat right next to the door which had a cold draft coming in while the rest of the restaurant was empty. My main course which was gnocchi can only be described as... More

I used to really look forward to visiting The Bear whilst studying at University and was excited to take my parents here for a meal. The service behind the bar was unfriendly and unhelpful. the food was nowhere near as good as it used to be. We weren't offered desserts, and being in hospitality myself, thought that was careless considering... More
