Staff friendly enough. Was out using a discount birthday voucher. I had a steak which was overcooked, the sauce was only just bordering on luke warm, it was missing onion rings that should have been on it. My friend's beef on the bone was actually so cold on the edges it was as it if had come straight from the... More

I have visited the Bear on several occasions due to it being my local pub, but whilst it is fine for a mid week drink or even a bar meal when it comes to visiting the restaurant I always feel unwelcome. Firstly when you walk up to the base where they should greet you, you are usually met with a... More

I have had business functions and brought friends to this pub. It has a really nice atmosphere and my foreign friends really like how it has the feel of an old English pub (because it is!). Food is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. I like the Indian dishes and sharing plates. This is my favorite local restaurant.

I used to really enjoy this place. It's a lovely setting, but we've booked for mother's day. I rang to ask to add one person to a booking of 5. After taking 5 minutes for the miserable person who took to call to finally acknowledge we have a valid booking... for which I'd paid a £25 deposit! I find they... More

We, a group of three went to this Inn on a Friday lunchtime. Despite there being tables available before/during and after our meal, they seemed to struggle to find one for us. The table had dirty wine glasses on and cheap paper towel as a serviette. Not one of the staff brought any joy to our experience showing a distinct... More
