This pub is close to home so we thought we try it after the Tripadvisor reviews. The Bear Inn definitely did not disappoint! Lovely home cooked food which tasted delicious, staff were lovely and helpful and we will definitely be returning.

Lovely country pub in the heart of the Cotswolds. The food is delicious and you get generous portions. The landlady and staff are very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. Quaint pub to visit any time of year.
