Lunched rather than Dinner at The Old Bear as fully booked evenings for the duration of holiday in the area. Everyone friendly and helpful and we had good quality food in a relaxing atmosphere. Would return for evening Dinner in the restaurant.

The food here is well presented and cooked. A lovely old pub with a great atmosphere. Well worth a visit. Do book as it can get busy due to its excellent local reputation. There is plenty of parking.

Hi there, we serve Sunday lunch from 12.00 to 14.30. We have a carvery on Sundays, and it is very popular, so early booking is recommended. Please give us a call on 01225 782487 to book a table. Many thanks for your enquiry.
