We spent three nights at the Bear while visiting our daughter. The whole property is rather shabby and unkempt. The publican proprietor was a bit odd...his greeting was " Ive just tried to phone you"! We didn't see him again. The room was large and the bed comfortable, Wifi was also good and there were plenty of breakfast and tea...

I was outraged when i saw this heading. The reason we tried to contact you was we where about to close for the day and we where showing some concern that you might not be able to get in as it was two hours from our advertised check-in time, more fool us for bothering, and as regards not seeing the...

One member of staff (manager/owner) grumpy and unwelcoming. Place doesn't open until 5pm which was a little disappointing. Rooms need some care and attention. Bath was not in use for some reason and mould on shower curtains. However lots of choice on cider, pies were excellent (although mash was watery) and bar staff were friendly.

Booked in for one night, arrived early as was warmly greeted by barman (Harry) who said our room would be ready in an hour, perfect as we wanted to try their vast selection of pies. Whilst deciding which pie to try, we relaxed with a perfect pint of Tribute in front of a roaring fire. I decided to go for...

(This review is about the bar in this Inn). If you like Pies, this is the place for you! Firstly, as you walk in to the bar, there is a lovely atmosphere, complemented by a lovely open log fire in the winter. The two guys behind the bar were extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable of the beers and 12 or...

Wanted to try the steak and black pudding but run out so had steak and stiton pie instead and a beef roast dinner. So refreshing to have a pie on a plate - a PROPER pie and not one of those separate casserole thingies with flaky pastry lids. Certainly more than enough to fill a very hungry couple but we...

We stayed here for a long weekend in January. We rooms are lovely - modern and spacious and a bargain at the price charged. They don't do a cooked breakfast but this suited us fine offering a continental breakfast in your room including croissants yoghurts, fruit juice but there are many places in town to cater for breakfast. The steak...

Amazing big rooms, spotlessly clean and nice decor. Comfy beds and so nice to see all free bits and bobs to have breakfast in the room - so thoughtful. Friendly girl on the bar who welcomed us. Very central also. The only problem with Bradford is the parking issue but the Bear has nothing to do with this. Rates were...

Stayed at the hotel for one night. Open fire in lounge bar, award winning pies. Helpful service. The rooms are surprisingly big and well furnished.The expected background pub noise is not a problem and ended at midnight on a busy Saturday night. Breakfast not included but plenty of complementary snacks in room.

Stayed a few nights between Christmas and New Years and we were very happy with the accomodation. The room was much larger than it appeared in photos and was well equipped. It was also warm enough in winter. The food and drinks downstairs were also great. We loved the pies and enjoyed coming back to a pint after a day...
