After looking to buy a lodge at church farm in january. We were recommended the bear. We were not disappointed. Lovely welcoming staff excellent food
We went back few weeks later bought our lodge and was back in the bear.
We have eaten in 5 star restaurants in london and not had food as good as we have had in the bear.
We regulary go to the bear and always recommend the bear to other people.
We wont eat anywhere else in pagham !!!!

Went for Sunday lunch with the family.

Food was wholesome and good. Plentiful and quality. Roast beef was very well cooked, as were the vegetables. Steak pie and macaroni cheese equally well received!

Staff very friendly and accommodating.


A very good option for anyone staying in Pagham.

I paid for friends to stay at this B&B for two nights over the weekend. NEVER again.
- There was live music both nights which we were not informed about.
- They were offered 1/2 hour to have breakfast (9-9.30). If they wanted something earlier they were told they could have a tuna sandwich!!
- When I phoned to ask the manager if this was usual for their breakfast arrangements. He told me that they are primarily a pub so not really set up for B&B. When I said you are either a B&B or you are not, he said "have you phoned up to be arsey!" I could not believe my ears. I asked him for a refund of the cost of breakfast. He said 'no chance' and hung up!
I am shocked at the rudeness of this man. Avoid.

We went here twice the second time as the food was so good on the first. We weren't disappointed. There is an extensive menu. Belly pork with black pudding and an exquisite potato stack and veg was mine. Kids menu was ok and one of them had some amazing fish and chips. Veggie options are ok. Desserts were amazing ice creams which were huge. Beer was lovely a good real ale and a nice wine list but being a driver one pint was the limit. There is a great beer garden, nice little games bar and the entertainment was good. It has to be said we also had a really friendly welcome too which some of the other pubs just didn't.

We popped into the bear after finding the other pubs in Pagham to be a bit hostile. We were very pleased with the welcome, the friendly service and the food, which costs the same as the bar food at Church Farm campsite, where we were staying, but is of greatly superior quality. There's a good live band on Saturdays, a pool table (for those of us with teenagers) and good beer to boot. Very definitely worth a visit!

We stayed in Pagham for the week and ate at The Lamb and The Bear. The Lamb looks a nicer pub (and I have reviewed it), but The Bear was so friendly. We arrived back in Pagham at 5pm and were looking for somewhere to eat (or to go back to our cottage for Fish and Chips) - we walked into The Bear and the very friendly barman greeted us warmly. We were told that food was not served until 6pm (we were nearly turning to go), handed a menu to look at, and then offered a drink (very smoothly done, as we then had G&T's in the beer garden, and time ticked by so that we decided to stay for another until the food was being served).
A very friendly lady came out to the garden to see if we were ok, and advised that the kitchen would be open soon - she took our order and before we knew it the food arrived. We went for the two course special and I ate local sausage and mash followed by homemade treacle pudding and custard - it was hot and very tasty.
As we left, the barman and the waitress called goodbye with the same friendly enthusiasm that we arrived to.
