We came for lunch as non residents. A nice relaxing atmosphere, allowing you to relax and chat whilst waiting for your food to be cooked. All food is prepared to order but it was certainly worth the wait. The menu was varied and reasonably priced. Definitely worth a second (or even third or fourth!) visit. Plenty of space too so even though it was busy, it didn't feel crammed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bear has origins as far back as the 12th Century, but it's best known as the inn where they changed the horses on the mail run from Cardiff to Swansea. This famous Coaching Inn is steeped in history. Nowadays, this privately owned 3 star hotel is famed for its fine home-cooked food, friendly atmosphere and really good ale. During the 18th Century, Napoleon's troops were held in the 'Bear Pit' en route to London after a failed invasion at Fishguard! The Bear rests in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan, surrounded by beautiful rural hills. The Brecon Beacons and the Welsh Valleys are close by, with breathtaking views. Some of the Valleys still have the mining houses visible as you drive through. The hotel is on the main high street of the historic town of Cowbridge. This chic market town boasts some fabulous boutique shops, lingering walks around the Roman wall and some of the most beautiful town-houses. ... more less
