“Good atmosphere, lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

The Bear was recommended by the staff at a nearby guest house where we were staying - although it was an uphill trog to get there we waddled home replete and happy after a lovely meal, better food and atmosphere than the night before at a restaurant in the middle of Bath.
Friendly staff, tasty food, good beer - would highly recommend it.

“Lunch time gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I visited the Bear for lunch last week with a friend after seeing they were now under new ownership. What a treat! The furniture has a vintage 70's feel with a mix of comfy sofas and restaurant tables & chairs! After some deliberation over the menu we made our choices and sat back and relaxed. The food did not disappoint! My friend had ordered the Bear Burger, a home made beef burger with cured bacon and Wookey hole cheddar & I went for the interesting sounding smoked haddock, wild mushroom & Gruyere cheese pancakes.Fresh, tasty and both with delicious triple cooked chisp on the side! I could not fault our meals. It will not be long before we visit the Bear again!

“a nice surprise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

we were staying nearby and didn't fancy going into bath. a waitress at the hotel said give the bear a try!
from a rather run of the mill exterior we were surprised by the lovely interior.
nice cider, lovely food and friendly staff.
give it a try you won't be disappointed.
a good mix of all ages enjoying their evenings.

“average pub food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The one thing that stood out here was the model of the polar bear on top of the building. Food was average pub food, with a cosy interior. Great for a weekday evening meal out.
