We stumbled across the Bear inn whilst walking up to the village. We had a marvellous Sunday lunch there, the staff were very helpful and friendly. A large selection of food on the menu.

Enjoyed good service from friendly staff who were very helpful. The food was delicious and reasonably priced in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Unusual pub grub menu which was a delight as it included traditional casual dining plus some extra treats. It's a busy pub grub kind of venue but the food raises the game somewhat.

A choice of meats in ample supply and freshly cooked choice of vegetables. As much pork crackling as you can bear and the usual desserts, also in ample portions. I enjoyed it so much, I can't wait to go back.

The most delicious Sunday roast you will ever get, food is always hot and tasty with the most amazing home made stuffing and roast potatoes cooked to perfection. Highly recommend but book as it gets very busy. X

Love this place. Friendly little village pub with loads of character. Whether it's out straight from work with friends for food and a pint, a Saturday session to watch the rugby, live music on the weekends or Sunday dinner with the family this place is hard to beat. As far as Sunday dinner is concerned, Colin's mustardy ham, rare beef,... More
