    Lovely idea to offer a Valentine’s meal especially on Valentine’s Day but it wasn’t very well executed. No effort to organise table allocation so that Valentines were not mixed up with families and the waitress doing table allocations had a miserable persona (the other two waitresses were very good but the waiter was clueless about the menu and drinks). It was unfortunate that Valentine’s Day coincided with the well established weekly quiz night. We enjoyed most of the food but lamb dish needed more finesse in presentation and Eton Mess needed more fruit to offset sweetness of dish. Excellent real ales on offer. This pub could be amazing and it’s frustrating that those managing it aren’t motivated to make it so.

    Good afternoon Mike Many thanks for taking the time to review the Bear. Firstly, I am sorry to hear that your experience was not a better one, Unfortunately on this day we had some staffing issues, which led to some people working here that don't normally. I will pass on your feedback to the chefs in regards to the menu, this was a one off Menu, however its always good to know what works and what doesn't. As the General manager, I can assure you that I am very motivated and I do want to make the Bear a great local. I do hope hope you give us another opportunity some time. All the best David

    It was a midweek evening so not too busy. Service was attentive, food was good and I was lucky to get a parking space. Good place to go for an enjoyable evening meal.

    Our anniversary dining experience was spoilt because the email offering the Valentines Menu had information that the Bear Pub was not aware of. The staff were most apologetic as some of the menu was not available. However they redeemed themselves by giving us free desserts and coffees.
    The Bear InnResponded on 26 February 2024
    Good afternoon guys I am sorry for what happened when you visited, there was indeed a bit of confusion with the Valentines menu, I hope this doesn't put you off visiting us again some time. All the best David

    Good food with generous roast dinner portions. Very friendly staff. We took our dogs and they were very welcome. Pub was busy so service was slightly slow as it got busy but wasn’t a problem.
