About The Bear Hotel
The Bear is the bustling heart of the charming town of Cowbridge. Ever since anyone can remember, it’s been a gracious gathering place to meet, talk, celebrate, socialise and stay. It began life in medieval times as the town house to Llanmihangel, a local country house – both still standing today.
Replete with nooks, crannies and tales to make your hair curl, The Bear has a special spot for everyone, from modern glitz to gracious 18th century ballroom. Whether you’re after boutique shopping and chic cocktails, fine dining with friends or a bracing coastal stride* followed by a local pint, The Bear has a corner for you. We often wish the walls could talk. We’d love you to come and add to our stories.

Great professional and efficient service. Happy to help and always with a smile. Thank you for a lovely experience
Excellent lunch and service at The Bear, really well organised and would definitely recommend
We sat outside and we did really feel forgotten about as we were constantly chasing waiters or waitresses down to serve us
My husband and myself had a lovely meal at the bear the good was the best I have had and the service was excellent all the people dining were keeping in to the covid regulations and I felt very save there thank you we will definitely be back
Lovely setting, all covid safety measures adhered to, thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Excellent in all ways
Everything was great, served in good time and well and all the food is great love the menu
Lovely Birthday celebration roast dinners! Well done for such a great atmosphere and service in difficult times.
The best Sunday lunch in the area!
We always have a great experience at the Bear Atmosphere obviously affected by Covid restrictions but everyone is doing their best to give a customer the best service possible.
Great time at The Bear once again! We absolutely love it there. Staff are always so friendly and our food came very quickly this weekend. No waiting around
Food, service and atmosphere was perfect. No complaints here!!
Would highly Recommend the bear hotel for an evening out staff very professional and caring to all your needs will be definitely going back thanks to all the staff for a lovely evening At is terrible time thank you all at the bear Hotel x
Good night out, despite the COVID conditions.
Unfortunately atmosphere now sadly lacking as meals taken in function suite at the rear instead of the bar and lounge at the front. Constantly had to keep getting up - along with other diners- to close the doors to outside patio that waiters / waitresses kept leaving open. We’ve eaten here for years and mains of fish and chips shrunk considerably of late, along with v limited menu choices. Still very nice but 10 chips and smallish cod for £14? Must Do Better.
The staff at The Bear could not have been any nicer or more welcoming We have dined here a number of times recently and on every occasion we have enjoyed a delightful evening Thank you
All well organised, good food.
COVID safe. Friendly staff. Food was acceptable, could be better for the price.
Three of us had a lovely lunch, staff were really attentive and courteous. Was concerned that the place would have lacked atmosphere due to social distancing and the size but the staff had made the room feel warm, cosy and inviting. All the staff wore masks and we felt totally safe. Will definitely be booking again .
