The pub is cosy and pretty, they have a varying range of real ales and ciders. The staff are happy and friendly, they organise 'Bears on bikes' where customers can turn up on their pushbikes and a route around a variety of country CAMRA pubs is created, i've done this once and it was great fun-even when it rained on...

Have paid numerous visits to the Black Bear, either for a quiet pint or two with "The Lads", food with friends, and on several occasions for their monthly folk/acoustic nights and special events for a bit of relaxed entertainment. Every time I have found it faultless, they know their ales (sourced from the length and breadth of the country), and... More

Called in here with friends cruising the local canal network. Nice pub atmosphere but must guests were eating, booked before hand and glad we did as it was quite busy, not that that affected the service which was good. We all had different menu choices and everyone was satisfied with their selection. An enjoyable night out with a pleasant atmosphere!

Good atmosphere, friendly staff and interesting menu. Large food portions but seemed to be broccoli with most mains. Ok if you like broccoli which I do. More expensive than I expected.

Was not expecting the food to be so good, thought it would be a typical pubfood menu and food. Was I surprised it was excellent, better than some expensive restaurants I have been too. The service was excellent and the staff really lovely. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere with exceptionally good food.

We liked the Black Bear so much, we dined here twice. Starter of Grilled goat’s cheese with dressed leaves toasted pine nuts and honey was fantastic! Good hearty pub food in a comfortable setting.
