Dating from the 15th century,The Bear is an authentic addition to a historic market town. On the River Kennet, Marlborough is home to one of the widest high streets in Britain, offering a cast space for regular More markets which still occur to this date. Traditional elements of the hotel create a homely atmosphere. The recently refurbished bedrooms are in keeping with the hotels history but with additional modern comforts. The bar area has also been refurbished and offers a traditional English menu accompanied by real ales, premium lagers and fine wines, perfect after a busy day exploring the area. Food served 11am - 8pm Monday to Saturday Sunday Service from 11am - 4pm Less
