We sat in the spacious beer garden. The Bear cheese burger was to die for and one of the best I have had. Chips were great and served with slaw and a good side salad. Service and staff excellent. We would definitely return.

This restaurant is full of old charm and character with its stone walls and beamed ceilings. There are small, secluded areas for quiet, intimate dining and other more public areas for larger groups. We called in for lunch and found the menu to be wide and varied with options for light bites, main courses and daily specials. Food was well... More

We've eaten here several times and the food has always been good quality and presented well. The surroundings are lovely too. They are family friendly, which is a bonus and the staff have always been very attentive towards us - even when the kids are making a mess! I would go back here again for the specials they have and... More

Food standards are worse every time. Used to be a great place to eat, especially bar meals, in a great location, a coaching inn with loads of character I've known for over 50 years. Three times in succession the meals were poor, so we (and others) now tend to eat elsewhere when in the town. Pity.

This was one of a limited choice of venues on a Sunday evening, but the food and atmosphere was really quite good.

Booked here for Sunday lunch when visiting Llandow for a driving experience. Found it online and thought the pictures of the food looked fantastic. We were not disappointed! Went for the 3 course for 16.95 and each course was delicious. When looking at other restaurants menus, they are more expensive. You don't lose any quality or quantity here even with... More

Came to Cowbridge for a course recently and popped into The Bear for lunch. Service was great and the food delicious, I'd have stayed for a nice glass of wine or two, but had to head back to the course.

We had breakfast at Cellars after staying a night at the Bear Hotel in Cowbridge. Most hotels provide buffet breakfast these days however with the small number of rooms and therefore less people at the Bear the quality of the food was brilliant. The service was swift with plenty if juice, tea and coffee available.
