My partner and I stayed over for the night as we were travelling to France the next day. What a beautiful pub to stay at for bed and breakfast. The room was lovely, quaint and spotless. The staff were very polite and breakfast was excellent!

If you absolutely have to be near to Sandown race course, or you need to stay in Eshers high street, then The Bear Inn will likely be a consideration. I recently attended a motoring event at Sandown Race Course, where my vehicle was on display. The Auto Club I belong to suggested The Bear as a possible stay-over, due to...

Hello, Thanks for leaving feedback on your stay. Apologies regarding people smoking in the court yard. I have addressed this issue and have made this a no go area. Regarding the noise I have to say that yes the weekend can be busy, especially if there is an event at Sandown. But I would point out that this is subjective...

Really happy with our one night stay at The Bear. Arrived Saturday afternoon on a busy race day - lots of people eating/drinking inside and out before heading off to the race course. Check in was swift and our room was ready early! The room was a good size with a huge bed, cleaned to a high standard, fresh towels,...

We stayed there over night for a friends wedding near by. From the moment we arrived we were looked after - we were allowed early check in & they were helpful in ordering us a taxi. The lunch we had in the garden was lovely. Plus, I managed to leave something in the room which they kindly posted back to...

Stayed here for one night whilst on business in Esher. It's been refurbished recently and it is lovely. Pub is cosy and modern with a strong "horsey" theme, which is understandable what with Sandown being 5 minutes walk down the road. Bedroom 4 was lovely; very comfy bed, spotlessly clean bathroom, nice toiletries too. Fresh milk in the mini fridge...

Rooms on first floor but immensely adequate & roomy. Double glazing helps to keep the noise out because your next to the main road. Beer really good and food particularly brekkie absolutely fantastic. All round a relaxing stay in good surroundings.
