Lovely break at the bear great service and lovely meal and breakfast definitely recommend
Lovely hotel, have stayed here before and will be back. Food always lovely.
\enjoyed by all Food was great
First visit and a fantastic all round experience. Will be back!
Mothers Day lunch was lovely - food was great and the whole atmosphere was relaxing; nice touch giving my mother a little gift at the end of the meal, thank you.
Delicious food served in a beautiful setting by skilful and attentive staff. What more can I say.
Dissapointing experience on first night with bar menu/service!! 3 red roses in room @ £20 one of which was limp the next morning!!
Lovely 2 days here .We were given an upgrade on arrival to a top floor room with good facilities and wonderful views out over the common. Very nice valentine's evening in the restaurant with excellent service. Would recommend a stay here. We will be back!!
Excellent service. Lovely cosy atmosphere sitting by one of the open fires
Excellent booking process, warm welcome and great service. Thanks very much for a lovely meal.
I have dined at The Bear for special occasions and have booked in large groups on several occasions. The food and service are always excellent. As a Coeliac, eating out can be very difficult but the staff have always been able to offer me excellent GF choices.
I booked this for my Mum's birthday and all four of us had a lovely meal and enjoyable visit - we will be back soon! Thanks to all involved.
No vegetarian option on a la carte menu so had to have from bar menu. Waitress did ask for drinks, member of the party had to request some service.
Unfortunately, given the size of our party and other events in the hotel, we did not have the best dining experience and had issues with cold food, lengthy waits and generally poor and inattentive service. This was largely addressed to our satisfaction the next day, by discounting the cold food from the cost of the meal, but put a dampener on what should have been a wonderful evening. The venue itself was fantastic and the bar , reception and room staff were all excellent and all in all we would probably stay and dine again.
Lovely location, splendid room
Room smelled of urine. Service slow
The spot by one of the real fires is the place to be on a snowy winters evening for dinner. Great atmosphere, food and wine! The service isn't the best, but with a little bit of training it would be great; giving an all round fabulous experience. I've rated the Bear 5 stars, because it just has the right amount of charm and quality, the service sort of doesn't matter (but enough to mention it). This is my second overnight stay. The first visit I had lunch in the bar, and dinner in my fabulous room, and the second visit I had dinner in the bar, by the fire. Look forward to coming back soon x
Lovely pub, great for our work Christmas lunch. Cosy atmosphere, amazing food and friendly service.
Excellent Sunday lunch menu in the restraunt. Food was beautiful and a fine range for a set menu, which was more than value for money.
The dining experience was lovely, but I have one major complaint. We had booked the bed, breakfast and dinner option on line as we stayed the night. t no point did I see that there was a limit on the spend for the dinner. This was not mentioned at booking in, or as we were seated at the restaurant, or when our order was taken. Only after we had eaten and finished our meal did the waitress mention that £34 per person was the limit on this deal when she presented us with the bill. I didn't even finish my dessert and would probably have ordered less food if I'd known. I did mention all this on checking out of the hotel, but nothing was done about it. This is a real shame as everything about the rest of our stay was fabulous.
Great place, friendly staff, good food, great atmosphere. Would definaly come back.
Great place and I fully recommend people give it a try.
