Great food and Service from start to finish, a lovely guy called Lawrence met us and guided us to our table and handed over to Lizzie our server who was most attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all for a lovely evening and the top service. keep up the great work.

Excellent service from the staff they really do go over and above! Food was ok generally good overall apart from my marinated chicken kebab was a little dry. Everything else was lovely thank you.

We dined here as my boyfriend won a voucher through a charity raffle that The Funky Bear had kindly donated towards. We had a lovely meal and drinks, service was lovely and friendly with the staff being knowledgeable about the foods and wines! Given the current situation I was slightly nervous about eating out but was reassured and pleased to see that everyone was adhering to the social distancing and wore masks at all times. Thank you to everybody at The Funky Bear! Would recommend without hesitation!

Felt very covid safe and the team were enormously friendly and happy - especially given the government announcement earlier that evening. Well done.

We arrived and had the usual greeting which was fine. Ordered drinks and then the waiter took our food order. The food took well over an hour and people around us seemed to be in the same boat. Then they bought two of the four meals which were ordered out, and left 2 guests without food. One of the two meals which was bought out only had half of the food is should of had. Then finally the two remaining meals came. One was fishcakes which were completely burnt ontop of soggy salad. Asked for sides which didn't come until asked twice, and forgot our sauces. Being spoken to rudly by staff. Never going to visit again and will advise others to also do the same.

We waited 1 hour for Sunday dinner. We only Ordered 2 meals and two sides. Dinners came out our sides and gravy was forgotten. When the sides was bought out our food was cold. We ordered Creamy spinach and leeks And cheesy battered cauliflower as this was forgotten I feel this was rushed the creamy leek and spinach side was warm milk mixed with the veg and the cauliflower side was solid.
