WELCOME TO The Bear The Bear offers dining throughout, a warm sociable bar area, relaxed back garden with summer barbecue and a stunning front terrace, with service, for both dining and drinks when it is fit to sit outside. All our food is freshly prepared on the premises by our dedicated kitchen team. Our menus are seasonal. You can expect to see influences of this in our core dishes and daily specials. On Sundays we offer prime home cooked roast dinners with seasonal accompaniments. Private dining facilities are also available for an intimate occasion with colleagues, friends or family for parties of up to twelve. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Booked a table here so that we could meet up with family whilst we were travelling around the M25. I like this place, and the staff are fine. The only problem this time was that mussels were served and they were cold, but when I mentioned this at the time of paying the bill they were deducted from the invoice.... More

Today we visited The Bear in Oxshott. Firstly, we all agreed our food was excellent, beautifully presented and tasted even better.Congratulations to the chef. However the service was not the best we have ever experienced. Even though our section of the restaurent was practically empty our servers were seldom seen. However, the food was so good, we will be back... More

It has been about 3 months since we have been at The Bear. We found a restaurant with way better service in The Star near the Leatherhead Golf Course. Since moving here over 18 months ago we probably attended The Bear 15 - 20 times. The majority of the time the service is indifferent. Most times we went were Sunday... More

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
