The Sunday lunch is a traditional carvery. The food was excellent and well presented. Best choice of properly cooked vegetables I have seen on a carvery. Option of 2 or 3 courses. Home made puddings. Decent choice of wines. Great value. Staff friendly and helpful.

We have had Xmas dinner here twice and my neighbours go there for lunch regularly. The food is home cooked and is delicious. It's homely and friendly.

A good local pub with a restaurant. Play pool, bar billiards or darts with a pint or two. Use the restaurant for a lovely home cooked meal. There is also a very good carvery, make sure you book if you want the Sunday Lunch.

Have spent several xmas parties at the Black Bear.The meal is always hot and very good portion sizes. Plenty of staff who seem friendly. A great disco too. Well worth a visit for a meal or just a drink.

Stopped in just for a meal, so there weren't many people in the place, but for all that it still had a nice atmosphere. The landlord was a really pleasant geezer, and the beer was just right - obviously kept well and at exactly the right temperature. (How many meals are ruined by ice-cold Bitter. Stop it, we're not Americans!)... More
