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...

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 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...

Really nice large clean and well appointed rooms. Very good beer in the pub, excellent evening meal and fantastic breakfast too. Very friendly staff. Would definitely go again. Super handy for a Black Sheep brewery tour.

My husband and i enjoyed an excellent meal here whilst visiting the neighbouring Black Sheep Brewery.... Upon arrival the polite staff gave us their full attention and could not have been more helpful. There was an enormous choice of food, with different menus around the room on boards , as well as the standard paper menu, it was difficult to...
