Right in the cntre of town and handy for Clarks village.
Its always had a goo reputation for its rooms..wide choice in the hotel iself or in a couple of annexes.
The bar was revamed a few years ago now and there's a good deal of seating throughout.The choice of drinks is good and of late the food has improved a lot, now one of the favoured venues in the town with a good choice at right price especially their meal deals.

Stayed for 1 night whilst visiting the Glastonbury Carnival. this was our 2nd visit the previous being 2 years ago. We arrived early and our rooms weren't available but we were made to feel very welcome by the bar staff and chose to have a couple of drinks while waiting. We were allocated rooms in Rose Cottage just outside the back door of the pub. These are slightly smaller than the rooms in the main pub where we stayed previously but are very cosy,clean and nicely decorated with flat screen TV and tea/coffee making facilities. We chose to eat in the pub after shopping at Clarks Village and before walking to the carnival. The food arrived very quickly and was very nice.
The rooms were comfortable for our 1 night stay although the beds are very soft and creaky. Breakfast the following morning was plentiful and hot and the waitress attentive and very pleasant bringing tea and toast as soon as we sat down.
When we checked out the receptionist again was lovely asking if we had enjoyed our stay and the carnival.All in all a nice place to stay. As previous reviews have said maybe a little expensive for what it is but during the carnival weekend I would expect to pay a little more.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main pub.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in September as part of a getaway for my birthday, he booked a four poster room as a surprise and I certainly wasn't disappointed!! Upon arrival, the receptionist was helpful and polite and check in was smooth. The room (17) was located upstairs in the cottage annex next to the pub and was clean and large with a gorgeous four poster bed and a seperate sitting area with a couple of sofas and coffee table. TV located on the wall (not too high), decent number of channels (digital) and also free wifi (bit slow as quite far from pub). Bathroom was clean and functional with fluffy towels and toiletries provided with a shower over the bath (maybe a little low for taller people due to old cottage ceiling slope!). Room was cleaned thoughly daily and bottled water/hostess tray replenished including nice biscuits!! Breakfast was served between 8-10am (weekend times) and was a buffet with an adequate selection of cereals, croissant, yoghurts and hot food (sausage, black pudding, beans, mushrooms, bacon, hash browns, tomatoes) and tea/coffee, juice and toast-all items replenished when running low and staff polite so good start to the day. Ate one night at the pub-two meals for £10 and got 20% off the bill for booking direct with the hotel, decent pub food. Street is a nice location, the annexe we stayed in was quiet, there would be more noise in the rooms in the hotel in the summer as it has a large beer garden out the back, but i guess it depends how early people go to bed! Location of the pub is good for many attractions-Clarks shopping village is directly across the road from the pub, good shops especially the Cadburys outlet!! Streets small high street has some interesting unique shops as well as a few high street names. Street is around a 5 min drive to Glastonbury and the Tor, the views were well worth the effort to climb it!! Overall the inn was good value for money for those who don't mind quaint buildings and rooms, if your style is more modern anonymous travelodge, this probably isn't the place for you!! Staff polite and helpful, clean large rooms and free car parking a bonus-made my birthday trip special and will definitely be returning!

This was our second stay at the bear, so I like to compare our two seperate visits, this time we stayed in the cottage room (22) which is over the road from the pub itself, it has its own private car parking area. The rooms are a nice size, very clean and very quiet away from the main road, an issue we had in our first stay, rooms over the front of the hotel itself can be noisy from the road traffic. Although expensive for this type of hotel with not much else for many miles if you want a decent quality stay you have to pay the price. They did offer 20% off food when booking on line, we had dinner one night, a nice variety of food on offer, service and quality was very good, no complaints at all. Breakfast however is another story. On Sat morning breakfast was served at the table, no problem, on Sunday a different story it was a buffet self service and for 30 mins or so there was always something missing, difficult to get a full breakfast my wife waited 20 minutes for bacon and sausage! and then the eggs that were left had gone hard, an area they need to improve on looking at similar reviews. That asside a clean, comfortable with pleasant staff central for the village - recommed a cottage room.

Room Tip: Ask for a cottage room, two floors we had no one above but assume if you ask for second floor you will get no room above noise!

Stayed two nights over the weekend for £160,the staff were all very efficient and profesional,
but the service at the bar and at breakfast is so slow,none of the breakfast tables being cleared slow bringing food onto the buffet, one lady was waiting for at least ten mins for sausages to be replenished and then told that they had all gone.The room was comfortable and clean.
We chose marstons as they dont have a wethespoons hotel in the area and we like to stay in inns.we won`t be staying in one of theirs again.Wetherspoons are cheaper and better value even when you have to pay for breakfast also the bear only serve breakfast between 7.30 and 9.30 on weekends maybe up until 10.30 might be better as you dont always want to be up that early on a weekend away.

Room Tip: we were in room 1 and its very noisy, we didnt move because we were only there for 2 nights
