“We had an early dinner at the Bear on Saturday in the private room. There were 10 of us and i can honestly say that our wonderful waiter could not have been more helpful! The food was lovely and for once we could actually hear each other speaking! The manager and all the staff made the whole experience an absolute pleasure and we will be returning soon, Thank you so much!”

“Upon walking in, the pub feels warm and cosy – exactly as it should. All attention goes to our Nammu mascot, Dudley, our little Westie. Dogs are not only welcomed here but pampered with readily available free treats, water and plenty of strokes.”


I recently hosted a meeting in the private room at it was brilliant, the staff were professional and we had everything we could possible need – plus the location was easy for everyone to get to!

“With plenty of choice, we relax in a corner booth surrounded by sofas, armchairs and larger dining tables. No table looks or feels the same here, with a seamless blend of colours and furniture. It’s quaint and quiet as natural light shines in from the rear garden.”
