I think it's nearly 20 years since I was here last and by chance which makes it all the more special. Like our previous visit we had intended to visit the restaurant of the Black Sheep Brewery. However, being a Monday, the brewery was closed. I'm really glad it was because we were made to feel very welcome as we...

We have just had a wonderful meal this evening. It's our first visit to the White Bear...and we can honestly say that we have all had a fabulous meal. The pricing was extremely reasonable for the quality of the food. The bread given for starters is so typical of the traditional bread that we would receive in a good restaurant......

Full of character as well as warm and friendly. Great food, open fire and clean comfortable room. Little touches like cake in the lounge, happy chatty staff and the mixture of old China and beer cake on the tables added to the experience. Would definitely return and have recommended to friends. Thank you to the team.

Had a lovely meal with friends here recently. Very cold Saturday night and we were welcomed by 2 big log fires roaring in the grates. Huge choice of Theakstons beers on hand pulled plus good wine menu and well stocked bar There is a full menu plus specials on the board. Wonderful steak and ale pie with incredibly good gravy...

Just visited for supper and had two good courses, however the beef carpacchio was not carpacchio as I know it as it was far sliced too thick. However it made an excellent starter as cold roast beef with a tea/mint/chilli jelly. The 'special' rabbit and bacon pie got 10 out of 10. Lovely staff, good Theakstons beer and music at...

Can't speak highly enough of this place - stayed 1 night last weekend in order to attend wedding at a larger nearby establishment. Arrived before official check -in time to drop off bags. No problem for the friendly staff who said they'd move our bags to rooms when they were ready. We also explained that we might be back late,...

Just had our second meal here. Although staying elsewhere this is the place to come for food, drink and hospitality. Had two entirely different meals and they were both amazing. We had our young dog with us and we were welcomed with open arms. We cannot wait to come back again a truly great experience.

We stayed here over New Year 16/17 for two nights in a lovely large and very comfortable room. The Inn had been decorated for Xmas and it looked wonderful from both the outside and inside. Decorations were tasteful and not too blingy and the open fires just added to the wonderful atmosphere which we could not fault over the two...

Never eaten here before even though it's quite close to where we live. What a lovely surprise! Fantastic service that was friendly & helpful. Lovely complimentary homemade 'beer bread' & lemon iced water. Nice touch! Food was amazing from a fabulous menu choice. Spoiled for choice. Well worth a visit & we will be visiting again.
