I don't usually take the time to write reviews. However, I felt I needed to this time. I am very disappointed at the level of service and the quality of food served on our recent visit to the Cellars restaurant at the Bear Hotel (Friday 2nd December). We were celebrating our anniversaries, myself and my husband who got married at... More

Really enjoyed our lunch here today for my husbands birthday. Had the 2 courses for £10.95 - my husband enjoyed the soup & salmon and I had the deep fried Brie & lasagne. All delicious! Fab service with lovely staff, always pleasant & efficient. Hot tasty food served on hot plates, just how we like it. Drinks can bump the... More

What a fabulous place, i booked a table for myself, my mum and 2 boys for a meal in the cellar's restaurant, the brie and soup for starter were excellent, as well as all of our main meals tasting amazing with great presentation. Unfortunately we were all to full to fit a desert. Our waitress Lorna was very kind, efficient... More

Found this place on a Sunday evening when not many other places were open. We were drawn in by the menu shown outside but once inside, we found it was a special 'Roast' menu for Sunday. All fine for the adults in the group but my teenage daughter had so wanted something off the menu, so was disappointed. I asked... More

Friends have recommended the Bear Sunday lunch to us for a long time, but we just haven't got there. However we managed to get a table last Sunday . What a treat, the food was amazing! Even though I have quite a small appetite I managed to finish everything. The extra gravy seemed quite unnecessary at the start of the... More

We sat in the spacious beer garden. The Bear cheese burger was to die for and one of the best I have had. Chips were great and served with slaw and a good side salad. Service and staff excellent. We would definitely return.

This restaurant is full of old charm and character with its stone walls and beamed ceilings. There are small, secluded areas for quiet, intimate dining and other more public areas for larger groups. We called in for lunch and found the menu to be wide and varied with options for light bites, main courses and daily specials. Food was well... More

We've eaten here several times and the food has always been good quality and presented well. The surroundings are lovely too. They are family friendly, which is a bonus and the staff have always been very attentive towards us - even when the kids are making a mess! I would go back here again for the specials they have and... More

Food standards are worse every time. Used to be a great place to eat, especially bar meals, in a great location, a coaching inn with loads of character I've known for over 50 years. Three times in succession the meals were poor, so we (and others) now tend to eat elsewhere when in the town. Pity.
