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.
Great service and value Sunday roast for large family table on fathers day.
I had a very pleasant evening with some work friends - we always enjoy ourselves here.
Food was amazing and service was first rate this was our first visit to the The Bear Hotel and sure it want be our last
Amazing food in a lovely setting. Great value. Only downside was pretty slow service on all parts (drinks/ordering/clearing) Would otherwise highly recommend.
Look forward to coming again
A lovely old hotel with a friendly atmosphere, good service and excellent accommodation. It is conveniently placed to visit so many places of interest.
The food was very good, the service was attentive but not overbearing and the whole experience was top notch.
The food was absolutely delicious. Being vegetarians we struggle to find nice places to eat and we throughly enjoyed every course! The staff were so friendly and helpful and we’ll be back for sure for date nights!
Excellent, as usual.
Service was slow. Didn’t really seem to be anyone taking charge in the restaurant. Lots of younger people without any experience. Could have done with someone taking charge to make it more efficient. Empty glasses left on the table, wife asked for a well done beef and the girls who brought the food didn’t know what was what.
The dinner was absolutely lovely, great service and a lovely dining area too. The Bear was very accommodating to a large group of 18 people and provided a wonderful meal
Excellent meal and service. Will definitely be going again.
We had made a reservation several months in advance and because of the size of the party pre ordered our main course. We were sat at a long table in the corner with only one way in and out which meant that six people had to slide their way the length of the seat to get out which meant everyone had to get up. The end of the table was placed under a low level light fitting which you hit with your head every time you stood up. We arrived and it took about twenty minutes before anyone even acknowledged we had arrived and no one even asked if we wanted a drink or starter. They brought out the mains about 40 minutes later with only two bowls of vegetables for 12 people, we had to ask for extra and some people were kept exiting over 5 minutes for vegetables. After the main was finished we were left with empty plates in front of us for an additional 20 minutes and we had to finally ask for the dessert menu and waited again a further 15 minutes and had to ask for someone to take our dessert order. It is not very often we are all able to get together as a family and this experience was very disappointing and very poor in service and the table was very inconveniently placed.
We had a lovely meal. Great service. Staff were helpful in advising what meals contained gluten.
We regularly use The Bear and have done for the past nine years. The food is always excellent along with the service; we are never disappointed! In our opinion The Bear is the best place to eat in Cowbridge because the food and service is consistently of a high standard and you are never let down.
All round this was a very enjoyable experience. We were a very large party and felt welcomed and well accommodated. Good value for money and nice venue.
Special birthday celebration for one of our party which was thoroughly enjoyed
Everything was perfect! From service to food!
