I have been to The Bear twice in recent weeks and have been blown away by the fantastic food.Living locally means I will be back for more in the near future. Both times I had a different Fritatta from the specials board and with different salads.Every aspect of my meal was great from the celeriac remoulade to the tomato and... More

Popped in here for lunch after popping in the train for a few hours. The bean burrito I had was superb, far tastier then any meat based Mexican meal I've had before, the accompanying side salads also very fresh and tasty. Also sampled a nice local beer. Nice atmosphere and location with huge windows to ppl watch out of of!... More

This tastefully decorated gaff proves that meat free food can be fun and tasty. I would strongly recommend either of the mezzes which are a great combo of small mains and the luscious Bear salads (much of it sourced from the nearby local Incredible Edible co-op farm) and hummus. The specials board is always interesting - I had an amazing... More

There are normally quite a few specials, plus an extensive menu. Tasty soups with sourdough bread, varied and fresh tasty salads, inventive panini fillings, lovely pasta, hummus, olives, an excellent... More

A real surprise. A vegetarian restaurant with a good, varied menu which specialises in salads made with leaves it has either grown itself, or sourced locally. A good atmosphere in the upstairs room. Try to bag one of the window seats; it's great for people watching, even in a fairly quiet town. Excellent banana cake for afternoon tea. You need... More

After a walk up to the Bridestones, my boyfriend and I decided to go for a coffee in Todmorden. We thought The Bear looked quite quirky and it seemed quite popular. When we got to the counter there were 3 members of staff who completely ignored us and after a few minutes I asked another waitress if we ordered here... More

Visit fairly regularly and always enjoy it. Gets really busy at lunch times so if you can wait till 2 to eat, I'd advise it! The platters are gorgeous and worth the money. Is a little more expensive than some lunch venues however everything is homemade on the premises and tastes excellent. Caters for GF which is a god send... More
