A small group of old school friends meet for lunch here approximately every two months. One of the party books a table and always asks for a circular one so we can chat easily.

I visited the Bear Hotel for lunch on 2nd December 2016 with my wife and four of our friends. We met in the bar located opposite the main lounge. That room is split into two areas which are served from a single double bar in the centre. The main issue with this arrangement is that both sections are served by... More

I am very disappointed at the level of service and the quality of food served on our recent visit to the Cellars restaurant at the Bear Hotel (Friday 2nd December). We were celebrating our anniversaries, myself and my husband who got married at... More

Really enjoyed our lunch here today for my husbands birthday. Had the 2 courses for £10.95 - my husband enjoyed the soup & salmon and I had the deep fried Brie & lasagne. All delicious! Fab service with lovely staff, always pleasant & efficient. Hot tasty food served on hot plates, just how we like it. Drinks can bump the... More
