Very good sized rooms and bathroom with very thoughtful tea tray! Comfortable bed. Excellent choice at breakfast and good service. Great location. Added touches, like cake in the longe area. Plenty of choice for dinner and very friendly efficient staff

On the advice of friends, we stayed at The White Bear as we travelled through Yorkshire. We'd heard the story of the 2 distilleries and were keen to see the village. Getting to Masham is via windy roads but the drive is very scenic with much to be delighted by, along the way. Upon arrival, local staff were helpful, warm...

Called in the afternoon to look at the menus and asked if we should book for the evening, we were told it was wiser to do this. We ate early and had a fantastic meal,with excellent drinks.We were glad we booked because even for a Monday night it was very busy, all in all a very good night.

Booked again following an excellent stay in 2014. When I rang Sue suggested room 5 was a large room and we booked this - what a good choice. Lots of room, large comfy bed, excellent bathroom with shower and bath. Lots of extras including choice of various types of tea, cafetiere with coffee, lots of biscuits and hot chocolate. Bathroom...

We booked for one night en route Northumberland and were very pleased with our choice. The accommodation is presented to a very high standard with spacious room, comfortable large bed and large en suite. We booked a dog friendly room which was ground floor and his temp crate fitted in well and still allowed lots of space for the three...

I booked two days as a mid-week getaway and can safely say this is the best choice I could have made. The room was large with a huge, comfortable bed. The whole place was spotless with plenty of storage space for all of our clothes. The bar restaurant is a model for all those pubs that want to keep clients...

This is a hidden gem and an amazing hotel - we stayed here as a stopover to Newby Hall and the dolls house exhibition which was to be the focus of the weekend but actually this hotel was the unexpected star of the show - brilliant room to match (or beat) any 5 star hotel, fantastic dinner and breakfast, warm...

Visited today looking for a nice place to sit outside and have lunch for a birthday meal. Upon arrival we were informed there would be a wait until we could order food....no problem, not an issue. After waiting for about half an hour with some drinks, the waitress came out and said the chefs aren't taking any more orders because...

The White Bear is a classic example of how far English country Hotels have come. My wife and I stayed at the White Bear over two nights in late August. Our room was large, well furnished and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was well equipped with toiletries and even included face cloths - a rarity in most English hotels. The meals...
