From the friendly welcome, the complementary cake in the afternoon, the fires in the bar, to the food, The White Bear exceeded expectations on every count. A good sized clean room with a comply bed, Theakston's ales, good sized portions of well prepared food and a splendid breakfast choice. Masham is a lovely market town with some nice walks into...

We booked a table for 5 adults at 14:00 for my father-in-law's 60th birthday lunch. A roaring fire greeted us just inside the lounge area which was welcome on a very cold day. We were seated straight away and attended shortly after for our drinks order. We were given a basket of beer bread which was thick, moist and very...

Just spent one night at the White Bear and what a great place it is. Sue runs a very efficient and friendly team and nothing is too much trouble. The tap room and the main bar and dining room are both very welcoming and it was lovely to see roaring open fires. We enjoyed a very tasty and filling lunch...
