Haven't been for many years pleasantly surprised by lovely dining room to rear. Staff really friendly and nice atmosphere but food certainly not your ordinary pub grub but home cooked all fresh and great value for money. Certainly will be back regularly as lots of puddings to try.

Stayed here with family whilst visiting other family and the overall experience was great. Friendly staff really nice rooms and the food wast just fantastic. The breakfasts are especially good if not on the large side, for me anyway. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there as did the rest of our group, look forward to visiting again in the future.

We were staying at the nearby haven site and wanted a change of scenery (and some food without chips!). There are 3 pubs within a stones throw of one another and we ventured into the Bear Inn as it had decent outdoor space for the kids to run around. The main restaurant was almost full with lunchtime bookings but they...

Visited the Bear for a meal whilst on holiday for a few days in the area. Food, freshly cooked and very good portions with quite a good choice - the fish was excellent. Children catered for as well. But if you are a beer fan, then there is an added bonus! The landlord knows how to keep a good pint....

Food is great here. Wide choice of starters and mains with a good specials board. Deserts are good too if you can manage one after the starter & main! Lovely fresh food with good staff looking after you. The pub itself is traditional and has good seating. A separate area has the pool table & darts board. There is a...

We ate here Mar 2015. Took friends out to dinner. Food OK, atmosphere OK. We treated and went to pay the bill - the bill didn't show that service was included. I asked the cashier, who was our waitress - is the service included? She hemmed around, not answering. So when she handed me the visa slip there wasn't any...

We both had the sea bass and it was sooo tasty. Loved it! Friend had the chicken and ham pie and also raved about it. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure all was as we wanted. Thoroughly enjoyed.

We were on a family holiday in Pagham for the weekend and planned to head out for Sunday lunch. I booked The Bear as it was very convenient for us from where we were staying. Unfortunately, my 62 year old father had taken ill over the weekend so I booked the table for 5 adults and 2 children as he...

Oh dear, it is always disappointing when Trip Advisor is used in this way. We are sorry for the disappointment but our previous reviews prove this is not an accurate representation of the service received at The Bear. It may have been nearly empty on arrival, but all tables were booked out as is the case every Sunday.
