Had a brilliant stay whilst visiting Masham. Room 10 is excellent, roomy with a fabulous bathroom. Had an issue with our evening meal but the staff could not have handled things better. Cost of a drink and the evening meal was taken off the bill and a free dessert was offered. Exactly how things should be done. Breakfasts were lovely,...

A beautiful terrace to sit and enjoy a spot of lunch and some real ale. The sandwich was plentiful with great flavours and kept us going the rest of the day.The staff were friendly and nothing to much trouble we will defiantly be back here next time we are passing though.

We visited for lunch on a very busy Saturday, and service was consequently a little slow. We also felt the food wasn't quite as good as our last visit - possibly down to how busy it was. I would still return when next in Masham. Theakston's real ales were good.

We stayed at the White Bear on recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. It's exceeded expectations. Beautiful old building that's been modernised to creat spacious light airy rooms, simply furnished. Huge comfortable bed. The best tea/coffee making facilities I have seen. Good bathroom with a good hot shower, toiletries provided too. Spacious lounge area with complementary cake. Patio...

Stopped over on Good Friday. As usual rooms great with plenty of room and a good bath/shower. Staff are just so friendly and helpful, asking about other members our party which were not there this time. Meals were the normal great standard. Old Peculier until it come out of your ears, just great! Breakfast again great with the usual accommodation...

The rooms at the hotel are very nice and comfortable. They do allow dogs in certain rooms. The staff are friendly and helpful. We eat in the restaurant and would say the food was average. The chips were a bit soggy as was the fish. The steak pie was ok but not the most tasty I have had. Overall though...

This is the third time we have stayed at the White Bear and have loved it every time. Although the pub is very traditional, the rooms are comfortably 'modern boutique'. A lovely touch is the residents' lounge area with a help-yourself cake put out during arrivals time and tea can be ordered too. There are books and board games provided...
