Excellent service, great food and very good prices. I could not find fault with this little pub restaurant. I just hope that it does not get so busy that I can't get a table.

Good pub nice traditional atmosphere, food good and reasonable pricing and excellent service. The second time we have enjoyed a Sunday roast and both times very good. We will return.

This is an old-style with some original styling and features, including lovely stained glass and hops hanging from the ceiling. Popular with locals as a regular social space. It is a pub with food, rather than a restaurant. Pleasant place for a lunch stop. Decent...range of beers available. Decent sandwiches, although not very generous.More

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday! This was our second visit to the Bear Inn but our first time to eat but will certainly not be our last. Lovely pub, friendly staff, wonderful service and fabulous food! Oh, and the beer was awesome...too! Mrs WG had a lovely veggie roast and I had the smoked haddock, poached egg, bubble & squeak & cream sauce. It was great! Thanks guys and we'll see you again most definitely!!More

A real Kent pub. Range of bears, not only the landlord’s Shepherd Neame! About 5m wide but four bars one behind the other. Food good served indoors and on the Market Place by the Guildhall.

I visited for the first time recently and was delighted with the food and the prices. The home made fruit crumble was particularly good.

Beautiful pub located just off the market. Beautifully prepared food with care taken and great service. Tastiest tartare sauce I’ve ever had & onion rings & mushy peas. Chef needs a raise

Tried this pub for the first time for our Sunday lunch group and enjoyed it very much. The roast potatoes were excellent and the fruit crumble was the best ever. Great prices.

We had a look at Google maps and found a walking trail called The 2 creeks. I enjoy a walk anywhere but this was underwhelming and even if there were good views you'd miss them from looking down......dog mess everywhere!!!!! We decided to leave it...and head into the main roads of Faversham and what a wonderful and retro mooch. Butchers, bakers and candlestick makers and random shops in between. Before jumping back in the car to head home we decided to pop into the Bear Inn. It was like a game show where you get to choose a door to walk into. Would you find Narnia or would you get the old water in bucket trick?! No, you'd get old fashioned saloons and snugs, a fire place and a great selection of BW&S and ales and an old style register (updated to accept card payments) of course. As soon as we walked in we were greeted with the best smile and warmest welcome from Lacey. She was extremely attentive to 'lil old wine drinker me' and she made us feel very special. Being the curious cat that I was I noticed she was like this with all the customers that were there. The prices were reasonable but it wouldn't have mattered when you receive a service as such. Thank you Lacey for making this pub stand out. We will definitely be returning.....to the pub....not the 'crappy' creek.More

Popped in at lunchtime today and received a great welcome. The food was very plentiful and well prepared, with excellent service.
