Excellent Sunday Lunch

We enjoyed top class roast beef - plenty of it with well cooked vegetables. Topped this off with delicious bakewell tart. Recommended.

Popped in for a business lunch, even the light bite was pretty impressive! Very friendly attentive staff, lovely surroundings, well worth a visit. Have eaten here in the past at night, very good food, the only point, because they class themselves as a Brasserie, don't get a table near the bar, because all tables are eatery tables and the bar...

Excellent environment, excellent food, high standard, fast service with excellent staff, they really helped with my gluten free allergy, the food was gorgeous and of a very high, tasty quality! We have been going to this pub for food for a few years now but the food seems to be getting better and better. It's so fresh and natural, home... More

We were lucky to get a table here on a Sunday evening. There was a big party behind us but they were very civilised and we were in a little alcove. There was an excellent menu with plenty of choice for our nonmeat eating member. We all had fish actually Crab, prawns, salmon and smoked haddock and prawn gratin. All... More

Everything about the Black Bear is wonderful. Great beer, great food, super staff. A good selection of beers and a varied menu that should satisfy all tastes. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the pub has a wonderful atmosphere. Well worth a visit if you are in Whitchurch.

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
