This has been revamped recently and turned into a wetherspoons. The pub is trendy, friendly and welcoming The food, as with any 'spoons is basic grub that gives brilliant value for money. Four adults and two kids ate for just over 30 quid including drinks.

I go to the Bear possibly up to three times a week.Sometimes for a meal more often just a drink.
Always been happy to go there until last Sunday. Arrived at 3.15pm with friends. Ordered the meal and got our drinks.So far no problem.Then went downhill. Two Sunday roasts arrived cold.My meal of sweet noodles and chicken arrived at the same time. The forth member of our party was still waiting for his fish and chips when the rest of us had finished ours.he went to the kitchen area and found his sitting on the serving area. We then calculated we had not seen even one member of staff for over twelve minutes in the restaurant area at the back of the building where we were.No wonder the service was rubbish.

The next day I went in to the Bear for a morning cuppa. Spoke to a regular member of staff that I know and related our experience. Was told Sunday is always a problem for shortage of staff.

Will not go there again on a Sunday for a meal thats for sure.

Took the wife there as on a Saturday morning we like to eat breakfast out. It was quiet when we visited on a Saturday morning but the staff were friendly and the interior decor was interesting with a few reasoning points on the walls :-)

The food was nice and well priced and we will certainly visit again.
