Our only issue was the toilets, the weather was bad so the mens were out of use due to flooding, the disabled that was for them had a smell in there, the ladies toilets, 1 toilet the light was out so you couldn't use it, the next one has faeces on the seat, the last one to the side, the seat was broken only held on by 1 pin at the back and also had faeces in there! Such a shame when the rest was very nice

I found the food very average considering the price of it. The service was not good, Other guest who had arrived later than us were getting there food before us. Plus the blonde waitress was chatting customers up. I never realised the Funky Bear was the new love Island. The only decent about my whole experiance was your booking system was good. The rest of the experience was something I would rather forget.

Excellent waitress Mel served us 2 days ago. She was amazing. She sorted our visit out for Saturday. My daughter autistic and she did everything to help as did the staff on Saturday. It was my sons 17th birthday. Unfortunately the food was extremely salty. The halloumi and chips was disappointing with little over cooked chips. My husband did nit ask fir a double chicken burger but got one and was charged. Also we were charged fir an extra beer which they dud refund for. The service was very slow and my daughter got stressed so we had to leave without deserts. We were disappointed

Ended up walking out waited an hour for our food I asked for medium rare steak it came out well done, wasn't willing to wait another hour for it to come out. To make matter worse the waiter who took the steak went to a fellow colleague and was saying it weren't even that bad and the other colleague replied no that is well done not medium rare.

We booked for a Saturday afternoon, when we arrived there were 3 other tables with customers, one person at the bar yet no staff to be seen to seat us. After 5 minutes the customer at the bar was served, yet the barmaid did not even acknowledge us. Finally seated, the service improved a little, although the food did take a while to come out which was strange for very few customers and it did not come out together. That said food was nice although the chef needs to improve seasoning but everyone’s a critic

The overall impression we got from our trip was that the food was overpriced and done on the cheap to cut corners. The macaroni cheese was like the tinned sort with a slice of cheese melted on top. The goats cheese pizza was just a garlic bread with a few toppings thrown on. I admit the chips were lovely. But overall it seems like the place is style over substance. With the food being overpriced for the standard you get. The service was generally slow for both food and drinks on the whole. It’s a shame we won’t be coming back, as in the pictures the food looks fantastic but in real life it does not live up to expectations.

Having patio doors open allows smell of smoke into restaurant. Other than that, great.

This was our 3rd visit 2 funky bear , it was very busy and not many waiters on duty , we had to wait quite a long time for food, I went to the bar myself twice to top up drinks as the only time we saw waiters was when they were actually bringing our food, I can honestly say the our 2 previous visits a long time ago were definately better than the last 1.

Drinks order was slightly messed up and bit of confusion as one meal in our party was around 5 mins after the other 3 had arrived and had to ask to find out what was happening. Other than that the food was fantastic

Lovely look, but food not up to standard at all. It took so long for the food to come out and then when it did the chicken burger was hardly cooked made me sick. it’s been the second time we have visited the first time we found a fly in our food. Will not be returning!

Booked the Funky Bear for my sister in laws “home hen” with friends and family; what a great choice! Before the day I had a few questions/requests and each time I phoned the venue they were really helpful! On the day the service was faultless and the food yummy! We had the bottomless brunch which I can highly recommend! Thank you again to your staff for all of their hard work!
