“Favourite Place for Sunday Dinner”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Fine roasts. lovely veg-never over cooked-all beautifully served. The staff are all friendly and ready to make any adjustments required to make your meal perfect.(e.g. extra gravy!) Starters are imaginative and puds, if you can manage one, excellent.Good selection of wine. A good meal nicely served in a friendly atmosphere. Just not sure how they do it at the price.

“Great Little Pub”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Great to find a privately owned pub, nothing was too much trouble, extremely friendly, the landlord came over to see if we were all OK. A lively pub, excellent food and a superb choice of real ales, all at very reasonable prices. Will definitely be back.

“Excellent quality and good value for money”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

What a jewel of a place. We visited due to recommendations from friends and it was well worth the trip. The food is a good average price but the service is second to none. A real personal and homely pub with a great customer service. I had a steak that was cooked to perfection as requested and great home made chips. Worth a visit and a return trip!!

“great pub”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

I have been to the white bear two times now and i have had two great meals there. You get a very good range of food from starters to mains and The food is cooked to order so it is always fresh and is always warm when it comes out. The drinks are very resonably priced whether it be alcohol or soft drinks and most importantly the staff are very friendly and alwaus ready to help

“Nice country pub”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Nice country pub. Parking is on street. Proper pub food and proper cask ale available all at a reasonable price.
Staff and landlord are friendly and happy to chat.
Not the biggest venue so probably more suited to couples or small groups.
Does what it says on the tin.
