Stopped over on Good Friday. As usual rooms great with plenty of room and a good bath/shower. Staff are just so friendly and helpful, asking about other members our party which were not there this time. Meals were the normal great standard. Old Peculier until it come out of your ears, just great! Breakfast again great with the usual accommodation...

The rooms at the hotel are very nice and comfortable. They do allow dogs in certain rooms. The staff are friendly and helpful. We eat in the restaurant and would say the food was average. The chips were a bit soggy as was the fish. The steak pie was ok but not the most tasty I have had. Overall though...

This is the third time we have stayed at the White Bear and have loved it every time. Although the pub is very traditional, the rooms are comfortably 'modern boutique'. A lovely touch is the residents' lounge area with a help-yourself cake put out during arrivals time and tea can be ordered too. There are books and board games provided...

We have stayed at the White Bear three times now over a span of four years and it has always been top quality. The staff are always helpful and very friendly. The rooms have always been clean and comfortable. The food has always been tasty and plentiful. And the beer is second to none. What more could you ask for?...

The White Bear was quite comfortable. Our room had enough space for us to put our bags out. The room was up to date and quite clean. Took a bit of work to figure out how to turn on the heated towel rack, but did get it eventually. The tub was a bit narrow, but the shower worked well. The...

My dad chose the White Bear, Masham to host his 80th Birthday Celebrations as he was familiar with Masham and also the Inn from living in the surrounding area for many years. They have a couple of private dining/meeting areas available for larger groups, dinners and other functions. I helped my dad on the organisation of his special day and...

This was our 6th consecutive Spring visit to this charming North Yorkshire country inn and we were delighted to find that our room had been upgraded with new bathroom facilities. The water for both the bath and separate walk-in shower is now controlled by easy-to-use push buttons - what a lovely surprise. Large, high quality towels and plentiful supply of...

What a night at the White Bear, a fantastic little hotel and pub in this charming North Yorkshire market town. Our room was huge - a massive and comfortable bed, a great bathroom stocked with high-end products and stacks of tea/coffee and milk in the room for your comfort. Indeed, the room was so big the only improvement I would...

We stayed at The White Bear for two nights this past weekend. The room was really nice. A good size bed and bathroom finished to a very high standard. We had a room on the second floor over looking a small court yard. Breakfast was great both mornings. I had the full Yorkshire breakfast and my husband had the fresh...
