About The Bear & Swan
A traditional 18th-century pub, The Bear And Swan offers a luxury country retreat just minutes from Bristol, ideal for people en route to Bristol Airport.
Featuring six boutique rooms, this traditional pub can now be considered a perfect characterful stop-over for those on business or pleasure in the Bristol/Bath region. Take advantage of our frequent mini- break offers to treat yourself to even better value!
The Bear sits in the Chew Valley, popular with walkers and particularly those keen anglers. Chew Valley Lake, spanning 1200 acres is just a stones throw away. Renowned for its bird watching and fly fishing.
Our pub is well known to walkers and escapees from the city and features an ever-changing specials board alongside main and bar snacks menus. Our ingredients are sourced locally wherever possible to ensure the best quality and freshness. We stock a great range of ciders, lagers, and real ales and present a carefully chosen wine list to complement.
Had a lovely experience at the bear & swan. The food was some of the nicest I’ve had eating out and you could really tell it was all fresh produce from local sources. My little one especially enjoyed the play park. Staff were welcoming and friendly and the outside seating was a great atmosphere. I would highly recommend to friends and family and will definitely return in the future.
Lovely to be able to eat out but under cover. Kept the wind out and we got the benefit of warmth from the sunshine. Thank you to the friendly and helpful waiting staff!
Would of like to get a drink quicker
Lovely roast at the Bear and Swan. Staff were really efficient and friendly. Loved the enclosed outside area with heaters, Will be booking again. Would highly recommend.
We absolutely loved our meal Thank you
Really good service and food
Think starters, desserts and extras are expensive £6.50 for a bowl of soup!! for example This is our only negative - We felt very welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed our meal . Staff were attentive and working well during these challenging times
This was our first time for eating out since lock down began and we were not disappointed! We had roast beef which was delicious- very good quality beef, tasty and tender. Perfectly cooked Veggies, altogether delicious We sat under cover in the back garden with the sun shining through on us - the atmosphere was relaxed and joyous. It was wonderful to hear and watch people laughing again. Well done Bear & Swan you’ve got it just right!!
Lovely evening at the Bear & Swan. Yummy food and was a nice warm evening with the heaters and under the marquee!
Lovely service from kind polite staff. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great.
The covered garden is perfect for family style dining.
Great food, friendly staff and lovely environment 👌
Hi, ok visit. First time. A little disappointing to find that after reserving a table and arriving at our appointed hour of 1330 the chicken main was already finished. Apart from that service friendly and efficient and my pizza was good. Shame as well that the London Pride and IPA was not available either but the Butcombe sufficed.
Nice atmosphere, didn’t seem to be any gin on the drinks menu!
Felt really safe. It was nice to have table service throughout. Really nice that the children’s play was open.
Extremely impressed with how well everything was organised. Staff very friendly and helpful, service quick and food was very nice.
We had a great time, great food, excellent service, nice atmosphere. The only negative would be that the ice cream scoops were as if it was from a tea spoon! for £2 a scoop I would have liked ice cream scoop size scoops!
Fab evening food service atmosphere were all great
Food especially desserts quite expensive, Marque very nice with heaters to keep area warm.
We had a lovely meal. Great service and felt very Covid safe with tables well spread out also. Lovely food although quite pricey
Absolutely loved it here. The roast was the best roast we’ve ever had
Seems that you had plenty of staff but they were not experienced. Tables left waiting for drinks, to order food and waiting for the bill. This forced people to get up from their seats to ask staff for service. Even when you did catch someone and order a drink, the drinks never came as they had forgotten (more than once). It’s a shame because the atmosphere and set up here is great but the service massively lets it down. We returned on Sunday night just for a drink but again we were left waiting, once we did order it took 15 mins to get a pint of cider and half a lemonade. Shame.
Great food and very well set up being COVID secure!
Was a half hour wait for a table that we pre-booked but was worth the wait, food was lovely with good portions and the staff were great, really friendly and helpful.
Excellent outside space. Very good food and service despite being busy - definitely recommend to others!
