The lounge Bar at The Bear has good quality food, a lovely atmosphere & super staff. Warm inviting atmosheric setting. Food is glorious, specials menu offers daily variety.They serve all day & Sunday lunch until 9pm. So civilised. 5* service. All of the staff are superb. The whole experience is enhanced by excellent customer care.
We love to be served by Louise who is from Figi. An interesting & absolutely delightful young woman. Louise is destined for a Managers role & I do hope that the management of The Bear recognise & promotes Louise at The Bear. Otherwise I fear Louise will be 'poached' & that would be such a shame for all the regulars who so regard her.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bear has origins as far back as the 12th Century, but it's best known as the inn where they changed the horses on the mail run from Cardiff to Swansea. This famous Coaching Inn is steeped in history. Nowadays, this privately owned 3 star hotel is famed for its fine home-cooked food, friendly atmosphere and really good ale. During the 18th Century, Napoleon's troops were held in the 'Bear Pit' en route to London after a failed invasion at Fishguard! The Bear rests in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, surrounded by beautiful rural hills. The Brecon Beacons and the Welsh Valleys are close by, with breathtaking views. Some of the Valleys still have the mining houses visible as you drive through. The hotel is on the main high street of the historic town of Cowbridge. This chic market town boasts some fabulous boutique shops, lingering walks around the Roman wall and some of the most beautiful town-houses. ... more less
