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 leek and potato soup was delicious it is one of my favourites and didn't disappoint. Friendly atmosphere all the staff were very attentive
All staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient.
Having been a regular visitor to the Bear over the years for lunch we found ourselves very disappointed with the evening meal !!! Our mains; oxtail & beef stew was served with no potatoes and the chicken breast with only dauphinois and no vegetables !! No option on the menu to order a side of veg ...... had we been able to order sides of potatoes or vegetables the meal would have been far more enjoyable.
It’s good that the Bear is still an enjoyable place to eat and socialise. I understand my Grandmother enjoyed meals at the Bear in the 1920’s and 30’s . It’s good the tradition of excellence is still alive and well.
Our waiter . Do not know his name but he was excellent really helpful charming and although something went wrong with the booking he more than compensated for that and handled the situation very well. I am Sorry dot remember his name.
Service, experience and food was outstanding yesterday. Staff were very accommodating as we had some dietary requirements. Couldn't fault a thing! Can't wait to return. Thank you.
Food arrived before our drinks, had to remind the waiter for these. Coffee put on table but no milk or sugar, again had to ask for these.
The food was very good (veg could have been cooked a little more but that is personal preference). Staff was professional and friendly and the service was good. Thank you for an enjoyable meal.
Could not fault anything, it was a perfect evening in every way- thank you
Unfortunately, the kitchen was very slow. We waited an hour for our appetizers to arrive in total lunch took over 2 hours. While our servers were great, I felt you were a little short staffed.
Superb service and lovely food.
Great restaurant with very good food and service. The team checked if everything was OK and were very friendly. Would recommend lunch here.
We had a lovely birthday celebration for my mum. The staff could not have made her feel more special if they tried and the food was excellent.
It's a shame there isn't a lift to cater for disabled people like myself and the WiFi didn't work at all but everything else was so utterly outstanding including the staff, that this was easily overlooked by me.
Top quality food with very attentive staff.
Delicious food in a beautiful restaurant, brilliant service, highly recommend!👌🏼
The staff were wonderful - very friendly and helpful. Excellent service. The salsa with my chicken was a bit lacking in flavour and the coffee wasn’t very good - quite bitter. Otherwise very good.
Food was really excellent but drinks service in particular was slow and haphazard and we didn’t get all of the drinks we ordered and some of those we did get were wrong. It was a very busy night so you are excused for this because the food was great.
Very friendly and Excellent service as always thank you
Great service and fantastic food we can’t wait to come back
