My wife and I have just returned after spending 2 nights at the Bear Inn. Our bedroom was very clean. The staff where all very nice and helpful during our stay.
For our evening meal on the Sunday my had Roast Ham which included 3 eggs, side salad and lovely home made chips, I when for the Scampi and chips which also a side salad, which was put before us in about 20 minutes.
The following morning I went for the full breakfast, I am a retired coach driver and have never come across a breakfast like that before, to be presented with 2 eggs, beacon, sausages, hash brown, beans, tomato`s, mushrooms and black putting.
This was our first visit but it won`t be our last.
Many thanks to all the staff and managermeant for two wonderful nights.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The earliest reference to a building here is 1528 – this would have been a parlour, hall, buttery, dairy, and kitchen. In 1690, the building became the property of the Hurt family, which then became an alehouse and soon after known as the Olde Brown Bear Inn. The Bear Inn, as it became known by 1735, lay on the Birmingham-Derby-Chesterfield-Sheffield turnpike road…..by 1764 it had become a prominent coaching Inn. The names and dates of all Innkeepers and owners from 1735 – 2008 is listed in the entrance hall of the Bear. Just standing beneath the beams of this fine English country Inn invites history to wash over you – sampling a pint or two of fine English ale helps the process! The fame of The Bear has spread across various counties and continents in recent years, mainly as a Gastro pub of note, a hotel, carvery & real ale venue. Real Food, Real Ale, Real People, Real Derbyshire – can be completed with Real History. The Bear can truly boast to be one of Derbyshire’s oldest & most renowned Inn & Hotels. ... more less
