This was our first visit for drinks after dinner in O Sullivan's. This is a quaint pub and with the decor and seating feels like you are having drinks in someone's sitting room. This pub is cozy and serves food and on the next visit we will definitely try the food.

Nothing fancy, nothing "special" - just a really nice quality Sunday Lunch. Good carvery style meat service with veg to the table. Nice selection of desserts. It's worth EVERY penny! £10 for dinner and dessert! Would definitely go back!

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.
