Crowded but comfortable, child friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Excellent warming soup and tastey bread on a cold day.

I was taken to The Bear as a birthday treat by my husband and we had a great experience. The cafe had been recommended to us previously but we hadn't yet got around to going. A birthday is always a great excuse to go somewhere new and we're glad we did! We shall definitely be returning at some point. The... More

My first experience of The Bear Cafe had not been such a positive one and after writing a poor review on here I was emailed by the manger who was extremely apologetic and I was sent a £20 voucher so that we could return on another day. We are not from the area but we decided to go on a... More

How on earth is Bear placed 8th when it is prob the best place to eat in the whole Calder Valley. The food is always great both for us as life long veggies and my ten year old meat eating daughter.Specials board is always a delight and service equally so. We eat here most weeks and never tire of it.

Went for a coffee here with my son whilst shopping in the market in Todmorden. The food looked fantastic but we had eaten so just had a lovely coffee. The restaurant is upstairs but bright and airy and feels cosy.The little shop downstairs is really lovely and stocked with some great goodies. Will definitely return for lunch and a bit... More

I had to ask if we could have a table and... More

Sat in the big old window and had a lovely big bean burger with blue cheese and then an amazing chocolate and stout cake... made even better by effectively getting two portions because apparently the first one they cut off looked too small.

I've known The Bear Cafe for years..I worked there many years ago when I first moved up north. However, since those dim and distant days, the place has grown and improved beyond recognition. The food is top quality, well presented, and being organic, politically correct, and in the town where the Incredible Edible lifestyle rules, caters for all tastes for... More
