Square Meal Review of The Bear ?

This dimly lit boozer, with its antique dressers, vintage bric-a-brac & board games, provides a welcoming Bear hug in an area that sometimes feels less than inviting. Beer lovers are treated to a steady rotation of well-kept cask ales & bottled imports such as Coopers Sparkling Ale from Australia. Wine lovers are also well catered for, with a choice selection of good-value bins. The daily changing food menu combines French country cooking with seasonal British ingredients, hence snails, bacon & wild garlic are combined in a pie, & tender guinea fowl is served with girolles. Sunday lunches are especially popular & generally include three meats – pork belly, lamb shoulder & rib of beef, say – plus a fish & vegetarian dish. Upstairs, an events space plays host to regular exhibitions & gigs.
