very comfortable room, good service, and good food. staff very helpful at all times. Could do with more toilet signs for first time visitors. Location in high street is very good, and a comfortable little town.

A lovely old coaching inn with modern facilities and old fashioned service. Small menu but good grill type food. Pleasant staff. Ample car parking. Cowbridge is an interesting town with The Bear being an integral part of its long history.
