Wanted to try the steak and black pudding but run out so had steak and stiton pie instead and a beef roast dinner. So refreshing to have a pie on a plate - a PROPER pie and not one of those separate casserole thingies with flaky pastry lids. Certainly more than enough to fill a very hungry couple but we...

We stayed here for a long weekend in January. We rooms are lovely - modern and spacious and a bargain at the price charged. They don't do a cooked breakfast but this suited us fine offering a continental breakfast in your room including croissants yoghurts, fruit juice but there are many places in town to cater for breakfast. The steak...

Amazing big rooms, spotlessly clean and nice decor. Comfy beds and so nice to see all free bits and bobs to have breakfast in the room - so thoughtful. Friendly girl on the bar who welcomed us. Very central also. The only problem with Bradford is the parking issue but the Bear has nothing to do with this. Rates were...

Stayed at the hotel for one night. Open fire in lounge bar, award winning pies. Helpful service. The rooms are surprisingly big and well furnished.The expected background pub noise is not a problem and ended at midnight on a busy Saturday night. Breakfast not included but plenty of complementary snacks in room.

Stayed a few nights between Christmas and New Years and we were very happy with the accomodation. The room was much larger than it appeared in photos and was well equipped. It was also warm enough in winter. The food and drinks downstairs were also great. We loved the pies and enjoyed coming back to a pint after a day...

We were tempted in by the pies which sounded amazing. When we went with our children aged 9 to 13 however it was a different story. Didn't feel at all welcome... left before we ordered. Heard someone else ask if children were allowed and they were told until 6.30 pm.. It was 5.30pm Shame they missed out on £100 takings...

Was in Bradford-on-Avon shooting a wedding so traveled up the day before. Looking for something to eat we stumbled across The Bear Inn. Wasn't too sure if pie is what we wanted but thought we would give it a go as it stated that their pies had won a multitude of awards. Bar is well and truly stocked to the...

Great pub, great food, great service Pies were packed full of meat and very well constructed, with tasty pastry. Special thanks to the cheerful friendly barmaid and the chef for taking our late order (apologies didn't notice the time after a few ciders) Will certainly visit again soon
