A prominent and good sized pub on the main Wells Road out of Bath, it doesn’t look particularly inviting from the outside and I was expecting to find some type of run down sports bar. Consequently it was quite a surprise when I got inside and found a pub that looks as though it has perhaps been recently refurbished and is split about 50/50 between pub and restaurant. In fact I’d go as far as to say that even the non-restaurant part didn’t feel particularly pubby, and I felt that in some ways it has a bit of an identity crisis – is it a pub, a restaurant, or a café?

It’s an L-shape pub with similar décor throughout, consisting of a light, tiled floor and pale green paintwork, with darker green wood panelling on the lower half of the walls. The restaurant area is to the right, and here all of the tables were laid up for food with many of them being reserved. The other half to the left and around the corner had somewhat limited seating unless you were part of a large group – there were a couple of tables that would sit eight or ten, and only a few smaller ones. There were also a couple of chocolate brown leather armchairs and some low tables. A large bay window to one side let in plenty of light, and there was a plasma on the wall at the rear, although this was not in use on our visit.

There were various small items of artwork on the walls, and these consisted mostly of single colour drawings of well-known landmarks, many of them local but some further afield. There were also some colourful photographs of the local area which were for sale, and I daresay that these are popular with the visitors staying in the adjacent hotel. A selection of cakes in a display case at the end of the bar hinted further at the pub’s café credentials.

In spite of all this, there were nonetheless a good range of beers on tap, consisting of Robinson’s Hoptimum Prime, Doom Bar, Adam Henson’s Rare Breed from Butcombe, Bellringer and Dartmoor IPA. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Stowford Press.

Hi Everyone,
Well just couple of weeks ago (Easter)
to be exact. Me & the wife paid a visit
to the west country whilst there we visited the city of Bath, there we found
a pub called the Bear. We decided to have a look in, it was on a friday evening there was a life entertainment on we both had a meal & a few beers.
The beer & the meals was excellent & well served, the bar staff was also just has good no waiting at the bar for long. The night in question was excellent nights entertainment me & the wife had the perfect stop over in the city of Bath, with a great evening in the Bear pub. Worth having a look in if you're in the area.
Andrew Blakemore & wife from the North West U.K.
