E TA left this review about Black Bear Inn

A former coaching inn and later on a hotel, on the outskirts of Wool, this pub is now a freehouse which serves its locals well and is noted for its ale quality. A single large L-shaped bar bar forms the ground floor, while outside is a garden with one side marked off as a no smoking area. The pub stands in its own grounds and has a reasonable car park. In the bar is a selection of seating styles, and there is a gaming machine. The staff were very friendly, offering treats for the dogs, while the locals were civilised. They have an active pub cricket team and host a lot of fund raising and social events. Tasters of the beers were offered, the beers being Flack Manor's Flack Bear (the house ale), Old Nutty Hen and Betty Brown's Moonlight. All were in excellent condition and most enjoyable. This is one of the better pubs in the area, worth stopping off for its beer quality alone and well deserving of its recent award from CAMRA as Pub of the Season 2016.
