    Very pleased with our stay at The Bear, despite me looking for "The Bull" ! Part of an organised reunion, it turned out to be an excellent place to use for a dinner and overnight stay. Convenient location.

    A pleasant hotel, where some rooms are tired and require a refurbishment. The hotel is in a great position and the bar and restaurant offer good quality food and beer. Room 14 was tired and requires and refurbishment.
