About The Bear Hotel

Here at The Bear, we specialise not only in amazing food, but amazing atmosphere. Each of our Cowbridge restaurants has its own distinct vibe, to compliment the food it serves – from relaxed American-style dining, to thoroughly British Sunday roasts.

Our chefs at The Bear are passionate about local produce – grown from Welsh soil and reared on Welsh grass, so expect menus that are fresh, rustic and to die for.

The food was lovely and the celar restaurant was a really lovely setting. The only criticism was when we needed the bill and it took 15 minutes before I had to go and find the blonde front of house lady to pay. I was then told to pay by card I had to go to the bar. It would have been nice to be told that when I was handed the bill

I won a voucher at a charity raffle that entitled me to an night at the Bear with breakfast and money towards my evening meal. They put us in the cider house which was incredible and the whole evening was fantastic. We were so impressed. Thank you

Thank you to all members of staff who made our stay really relaxing, especially the ones who took so much trouble to make my husband so comfortable. We look forward to returning.

A wide-ranging menu, we all ordered different things and every meal was delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the restaurant setting is tastefully decorated, the seats are comfortable and the background music, while pleasant, does not distract from the meal or the company.The only slight gripe is that all the waiting staff disappeared when we were part-way through our dessert and did not re-appear for a good half hour. We would have ordered another drink but by the time there was someone to ask we had gone past it and just asked for the bill instead. Apart from this we had a lovely evening.

We had a lovely meal and we were excited for dessert, we asked could we see the menu and got told the chefs had gone home!!! But not once did anyone mention we didn’t have time for desert! I was absolutely furious. It was an Anniversary dinner for me and my partner.
