The White Bear Country Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We arrived home from a two nights stay at the White Bear in Masham. We stayed there to Celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary the welcome from Sue and all the staff was just great. We had booked a room but on our arrival our Daughter had upgraded us to the Penthouse Suite absolutely fantastic The food in the Restaurant was also excellent plenty of choice at a fair price. We would recommend this the anyone wanting a nice stay in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
We are hoping to go back up again later in the year and would be staying there again. Once again our thanks to Sue for making it a very special weekend.

This Hotel was holding a Festival but no details could be found except for dates, no times even on their website. Turned up on first day at noon (usual opening times) only to be told by landlady it started at four in a vey sharp and unhelpful way. When we told her we had travelled by public transport especially for the event she again was most rude ad told us to go away and come back at four. Needless to say we did not and would have no intention of doing so ever again. My money is precious and if yours is too don't spend it here with a very rude landlady that does not deserve anybodies custom!

I have just returned from a motoring tour of the North Yorkshire dales with a group of friends. We based ourselves at the White Bear Hotel in Masham and what a great choice it turned out to be. The rooms are huge and spotless and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. There is a wide selection of food on offer for breakfast and the food so good, we ate in every evening. The bar has a good selection of local beers and there is an outside terrace on which to enjoy them. In the restaurant, the menu is varied and the wine list comprehensive and very good value. But beware. Make sure you are hungry when you eat there as the portions are very generous!

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious, quiet and well appointed but I had room 14 and I think I had the best of the...

We stayed here with friends and our dog and found it friendly, comfortable and fun. The bedrooms were really well appointed with great beds and bathrooms. Dinner was good quality pub grub, served by really personable staff. A highly recommended stay!

Rooms were very nice, comfortable beds and all you could desire for weekend away. The pub served an excellent breakfast to suit all requirements. We opted to eat an evening meal at the white bear and it was beautiful. Only minor point no black sheep lol. We will be back soon!!!

As a touring children's author, myself and my wife get to stay in lots of hotels and inns the length and breadth of Britain. We found the White Bear Hotel to be one of the best!
We loved the location, and the hotel, just by the side of the brewery, was a delight to stay at.
Sue Thomas and her team made us more than welcome and the standard of the food was way beyond our expectation...the Sunday roast was to die for!
We look forward to returning to 'Herriot Country' and staying at the White Bear again. We heard of a great quote for this place...the middle of nowhere and the centre of the universe!

Room Tip: Our room was quiet and very comfortable.

Excellent stay at this great hotel. It was wonderful to find spacious and comfortable rooms with every amenity. Excellent breakfast - even a great cheese selection. It felt like a really well run place in a delightful little town

Room Tip: May be a bit noisy at the weekend as pub very popular
