Nice little pub and hotel rooms. Tasty breakfast. Wish we had more time to explore the local town, but it was a great base for a wedding that we attended! Thanks!

Great stay in a cosy setting.
Very pleasant overnight stay in a comfortable room with a decent size bed. We were greeted by a friendly member of staff who doubled up as barman/reception. We arrived early but the room was ready, so having dumped our bags, we enjoyed a decent sized BLT baguette and an adequate portion of chips each. The beer was excellent . Having been out and about for the afternoon we returned to The White Bear only to find no space available on the car park. Oh well, I drove around the town looking for somewhere to park and by the time I passed by the car park, there was a space. Just something to be aware of. After the lunchtime experience, we dined in for the evening meal. We were not disappointed enjoying steak and chips plus a tasty bottle of wine. The full English breakfast was perfect for me. Bacon, sausage, egg, mushrooms, tomato and baked beans - all good quality and very tasty. Plenty of toast, both white and brown bread, butter plus a good choice jam. All in all, a really good experience. This is the sort of pub I can spend an entire evening in. Friendly staff and locals, good selection of beer and cider, wonderful.
