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.

Visited Saturday before Christmas for family get together, a group of 10. Staff very friendly and helpful. Most of the party went from the christmas menu and a couple off the standard menu. The food was excellent, portions were so big. The place was decorated lovely for Christmas

This review is all about the Inn, not the hotel. I have no doubt the hotel is equally as good, but we have not tried it - to date! In all the years of dining here regularly ourselves and recommending The White Bear to others, neither we nor any of our friends can fault the range and quality of food,...

We ate here on Sunday night, I had emailed to book and mentioned it was my husbands birthday (to explain why I was booking so far in advance!) and they had put balloons on the table, what a lovely touch. The food was delicious and good portions, the staff were excellent very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We...

Called in midweek for lunch on a cold wet miserable day. Greeted by a roaring fire and a warm welcome from the staff. We ate in the bar where our dog was allowed to join us - wouldn't have stayed other wise - thank you so much for this. Ordered the ploughman's which was delicious and more than enough for...
