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.

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.

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 .
