Good Value and Pleasant Staff

I can't fault the service as all the staff were very courteous and the meal I had was very tasty. All in all I had a very pleasant experience here which I hope to repeat in the future.

The service and surroundings of the bear hotel couldn't be faulted, the staff were polite and friendly, and there was a nice 'buzz' for our evening meal. I had the Lamb which was delicious, and my partner had the Burger. However, both were slightly overcooked, which stopped the meal from being great. Service was also a little slow, probably because...

Really lovely ambience in the front Bat of this quaint market town Hotel. The food in the Bar is absolutely excellent in quality & presentation. The staff are first class & offer a friendly, warm welcome with first class service. The young man, BEN on duty in the evening is absolutely delightful. He looks after each & every customer with...

Great service for a large group. Very helpful and friendly. Varied menu lunchtime choices ranging from set (two and three course), light bites, specials and standard menu. A really enjoyable relaxed lunch. Will definitely return to try dinner. Ample parking and superb setting in centre of the town.

Great place but always busy-don't try weekends without booking but do enjoy the food when we can get in.

Even though I have been to the Bear Hotel several times this was my first dining experience at the Cellars Restaurant. There were four of us dining and I must admit I think we were not the easiest table to be served, asking questions etc. However we could not fault the excellent service from Andrew and Natalie who dealt with...

Once we manage to negotiate the double door of the entrance with the pram (one of them was locked), the entrance hall was spacious enough with room to pass through to the dining area. We were given a large table, and a highchair was brought to us. Unfortunately the buckle did not fasten correctly, allowing my daughter to attempt to... More

Went to this restaurant last night with a large group of friends (a party of 15) and was thoroughly impressed with the service, atmosphere and extremely high standard of food at a very reasonable price. I opted for the rib-eye steak (with cheese and bacon lardons topping it) which came in at £17 and looking back that seems like a... More

Called in for lunch as i have eaten here before, as expected it was very busy but managed to get a table quite quickly. I ordered the drinks and food and the barman very helpful and attentive. My wife ordered the filo pastry which was very tasty and mourish although they forgot the rest of her meal which arrived too... More

I recently had dinner here with my partner. The Bear hotel itself is a very nice hotel and the bar area where we sat was very nice and cosy. Unfortunately, the food let it down. I ordered the vegetarian burger which wasn't very nice. My partner ordered steak and chips but it came with sweet potatoe fries and we specifically... More
