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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday Lunch take-away meal on 28th June.The quality of the food was very good. It was very easy to order the meal and Mo was very friendly when we went to collect the meal. We are now looking forward to being able to go the restaurant again before too long hopefully.

Sunday dinner was great and the sticky toffee pudding was delicious. Unfortunately the gravy lid wasn’t placed on correctly so everything including myself and my car was covered by the time I got home. Such a shame as it did put a bit of a dampener on our treat!

(Atmosphere not really applicable for takeaway.) My takeaway meals (Sunday lunch) were excellent. The food - a beef dinner with sticky toffee pudding dessert - was delicious and the portion sizes were very generous. I marked the service with 4 stars because I didn't know that it helped to phone Penny Farthing to say that I was outside waiting. I assumed that as I was on time someone would be looking out for me. I was helped by another person arriving for his pick-up, he knew the system. Having said that, my meals were ready, very nicely presented and extremely good value. Highly recommend!

We had a two course lunch from Penny Farthing. The quality was outstanding as was the quantity. I would highly recommend their take away Sunday lunch.

This was a take away Sunday lunch from Penny Farthing during lockdown. Presented very well in a foil dish we had roast beef and all the trimmings with a second box of plenty of gravy. The brisket was tender, roasties crispy and veg all al denté and for dessert a sticky toffee pudding with some fudge sauce drizzled over. Possibly could have done with more sauce. All this for £15, not only was it all very tasty but if you eat from the foil dish no washing up either - bonus. *Service and atmosphere did not apply.

During these unprecedented times, it was great to have a well prepared Sunday Roast and a Pudding as a take -away! Booking and collection were easy and safe and the meal was excellent! Thank you.

Thank you for providing my afternoon tea for two from the penny Farthing Mohamed. I appreciated the extra sandwiches. I was a bit disappointed tthere were no other savoury options, such as sausage roll or scotch egg?? Too many cakes for me and scone a bit hard. Be great to have home made scones fresh every day. would pay more for those improvements.

We fully applaud The Quarter Penny for providing Sunday lunch during the current crisis. It is an innovative approach which was very successful as the meal and pudding were delicious, the helpings were huge and the food still warm when it reached our home. Well done for your creativity!
