My wife and I thoroughly enjoy those early evening tipples at the bear in stock as often as we can. TWO HOUSE RED'S AND TWO BAGS OF CRISPS PLEASE BARMAN!
The man that runs the establishment is an absolute delight, what a humble and considerate man. The atmosphere is very relaxing apart from the two dead pheasants on the wall above the fireplace and the man in charge always goes out of his way to make our visit an enjoyable and memorable one. His attire is very smart and their spaniel is an absolute joy when it makes an appearance.
Their wine selection is vast, the garden lovely to sit in on a warm day (apart from the screaming bipolar, scatty children glued to their gameboys - may I suggest that they make this bar/restaurant child free?)
Some of the staff are attentive, although sometimes the older staff never seem to smile as if to suggest they've heard extremely bad news... every day.. for the past 9 years.
Their wine selection is so vast after trying various bottles of plonk I was found by my better half hanging over the fence of the duck pond trying to stop a fight between the 3 little ducks that live there, then mumbling something about there used to be pebbles in the gents sinks in the loo and that it reminded me of our honeymoon to the Maldives.
I thoroughly enjoy the Bear, I just wished people in there would smile more and they wouldn't keep filling up my glass!
