I visited over the weekend for Sunday lunch and it seems to be in need of a strong manager as standards were really poor in many areas. The site is well known in the area with a large garden but seemingly everytime the sun shines the staff are surprised that it gets busy. I I arrived after a lovely sunny... More

Definitely not what it used to be, food and service were definitely below the usual standard. Only used it because we had a voucher, would think twice before going again.

Bad start - no lemon or lime for G & T. Some main courses not available and red wine served with screw top still on and no opportunity to try? When the food finally arrived it was quite good.

Dining out for my mother 70th Birthday, very well presented but let down by the awful food. Reasonable service but not once was we asked how our meals were or asked why we left them.

Birthday lunch at The Bear, I had the Italian Platter and would recommend it. It was very tasty. We went early and so were served quickly which was great as by 1pm it was very busy.

As a result of having some Chef and Brewer vouchers via Tesco Clubcard, we decided to try the Bear at Berkswell. We booked ahead and had already viewed the menu on line Upon arrival we found a really old country pub with low beams, totally charming The menu is quite extensive and the should be something to suit all. We... More

We use this restaurant on a regular basis. On Tuesday we visited, the restaurant was quiet when we arrived and asked for a table, as we had not booked they had to check if a table was available, given that the place was not even half full not sure why they had to check. Once we were seated our drinks... More

The food was great, and a lovely setting, but the service was slow and basic. We had a table booked for 8pm, but had to wait for the table, then no rush to order food, and passed food across the table when serving. This could be amazing if they sorted the service, as the rest is great.
