Located right opposite the (Quaker) Clarks' factory, the inn started life as a temperance hotel - it now has an alcohol licence and is part of the Marston's group. We're familiar with the new(and excellent) Generous George Marston's pub in Ashington, Northumberland, so on our holiday booked an overnight stay at the Bear as a comparison,and because I'm a Quaker...

Very well presented Inn both inside and out, even at this time of year the grounds look fabulous and love the huge maple leaf bear. The staff food and ambience could not be faulted. Well done ! Hope to come back again soon and bring friends, great place to socialise.

Firstly lovely location for a weekend shopping trip with very helpful and friendly staff. We stayed one night with family in 3 rooms and sadly were disappapointed with the rooms.

Came down the bear for a pint of lemonade with some good friends, ended up having a bite to eat and it was the best chicken I've ever eaten! Maggie the waitress/barmaid was absolutely spot on, hugely beneficial to the company and any pub would be lucky to have someone like that :) Little JJ , street

Good Afternoon Martin H, Blossom cottages are very large rooms and I am glad you found our pricing good. These are located across the road but they are quiet as set back and have parking right outside. We hope you enjoyed the carnival (despite the rain!) and will come again next year Thank you Jo Shopland General Manager More

I booked a room online. The pics looked quaint and the price was within the £60 limit allowed by my company. This included breakfast so looked good value for money. After check in I was shown across the road to what is probably the "cheaper" rooms for business travellers. I hate that. If you like the look of a hotel... More

BearInnTeam, General Manager at Bear Inn, responded to this review

Hi Gavin H, When a room is booked online, they auto-allocate to the Blossom Cottages first and then work up to the main building depending on availability and room requirements. Booking direct can ensure you get a room, where you want. The building has been standing since 1864 so is old but well equipped as you state. I am very... More

Great location opposite Charles shopping village and within town centre. Warm welcome upon arrival, although arrived very early no problem in parking car at rear, free of charge. Cottage Room was very clean tidy and quite big. The food was excellent with a great choice for breakfast. Will look forward to staying here again.

The food is poor. The service is terrible. Customers are just ignored and left waiting for an age. Plates were left on tables all around us, including ours. Its a shame because the venue itself is actually quite pretty. Needs to be run better. Won't go back
