Celebrated my mums 80th birthday on Sunday. She was thrilled with the cream tea. Staff were attentive and welcoming. W had a table in the restaurant as there were quite slot of us which made us feel special. The communication before the tea by phone and email was brill . Highly recommend a visit. We plan to return and stay the night . Thanks again 😍
Dining at The Bear is always a pleasurable experience. A warm welcome, excellent food and and wine and great value for money brings us back regularly.
My wife and I stayed as our 'minimoon' after getting married nearby. The team were extremely accommodating and gave us a complementary upgrade to the honeymoon suite, which was extremely generous and massively appreciated. The room was amazing, and the hotel even allowed some of our friends in to decorate our room as a surprise for us, which made the experience even more spectacular. We dined in the restaurant on the Saturday evening, and the food and service were both brilliant. The only drawback was that there was only one other couple in the restaurant at the same time as us, which meant the atmosphere was fairly non-existent. We'd definitely recommend heading there for the food and service though, which were both top notch.
Lovely location, accommodation very comfortable and tasteful. We had a three course dinner in restaurant and both thought starter choices on offer that night strange,and unappealing,the next 2 courses lovely. The outside area really great and we had a drink, good atmosphere and relaxing.This is our 2nd visit with you and would love to return again, staff members/service excellent.
We really enjoyed our one night at The Bear especially spending time in the sunshine in the new pavilion bar which had a great atmosphere and service from the staff. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the four poster bed room was very comfortable. The only downside was the noise of the fan that was outside the room which hummed all night, but that is difficult to issue to solve and we had earplugs with us..
We have stayed a number of times at your hotel as it is very comfortable and dog friendly. We love the beautiful location where we can walk straight from the door. We thought the new Pavilion to be excellent with lovely outside furniture and heaters too!! A great addition to the hotel. We always find the reception staff very helpful and accommodating too which we really appreciate.
Excellent service, friendly staff, beautiful location and very tasty food. Much as I tried I couldn't finish my plate there was so much of it. I will be back.
Have been to the pub a lot but first time in the restaurant, really lovely Sunday lunch, very reasonably priced 3 course meal.
