The food was amazing and the staff were very knowledgable about what was being served. Their signature chocolate bar was fantastic. I can’t wait to eat there again. Great to have local wine too.

Excellent service-staff showed a genuine interest in us as customers. Covid friendly/ secure. Husbands fish & chips- batter was a tad soggy... not something we wanted to mention at the time as it was edible and we so enjoyed our visit . Would definitely come again!

Beautiful Inn with amazing food. Large portions perfectly cooked. Covid puts paid to atmosphere a bit obviously.

A pit stop for us on the way to Cornwall, great menu choice, very tasty and great service. Waiting staff dressed very formally in suits which felt odd but apart from that could not fault it. Would love to eat there again

Staff very helpful and friendly and the fish and chips were lovely, but above all the COVID arrangements were so well done. From start to finish the staff could not have done more to keep everyone socially distanced and safe but they managed to do it whilst still keeping the lovely atmosphere in this beautiful pub. It all made for a very nice and relaxed lunch. Well done everyone and thank you.

Had an excellent meal on a Sunday evening with friends. Could not fault the food or the service. The only reason 3 stars for Atmosphere is because it was very quiet so although we had an excellent time can not really mark atmosphere properly but we would definitely recommend a visit.

Fantastic lunch. I'm a vegetarian, and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious roast I had. Puddings were devine. I understand that food purchasing for pubs and restaurants is tricky to say the least with Covid and the threat of lockdown always bubbling away in the background. What you had on offer was colourful, seasonal and locally sourced. Top marks. Xx

I only marked 3 for atmosphere as we were by ourselves in a room although I totally understand why. We also had to endure a very stroppy customer in the next room who mumbled continuously about everything. Your staff handled this with great patience and professionalism.

Outstanding pub, visually as you drive into the car park the building is the most picturesque thatched building with a charming beer garden complete with stream flowing through. Extensive menu, warm welcome, log fire, obliging staff, Dog friendly made for a perfect evening celebrating my dads 80th. I highly recommend The Bearslake Inn only wish I lived nearer, but have noted that you can overnight stay so will be booking a weekend break very soon!!

Lovely spot for some lunch. Booked a dog friendly table in the bar but the dog was too tried to get out the car. Everything was fine with the service and the food my wife and I had could not be faulted. Good choice of beers at the bar meant for a linger on. With regards to Covid-19 I was more than happy with their safeguards. I am back in the area in December and so long as we are not in lockdown then I will certainly be popping back in.
