Very impressive looking pub which has improved over the last few years and deserves it's Good Beer Guide entry. 6 beers on including Fixed Wheel Mild Concussion, Westgate Brewery Fireside, Abbots, IPA and 2 festive beers - Rocking Rudolph and Greedy Goose. Worth a visit.

Gill Smith left this review about The Bear Tavern

Popped in to see if there was anything apart from usual Greene King beers, and chose and enjoyed Southwark Thames Dock Pale from the selection available. Large comfortable room with many TV screens showing sport.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bear Tavern

Landmark pub on the crossroads in the centre of town, with a decorated clock-tower on the corner and an extensive frontage on two sides. The interior has been fully opened-out to leave a variety of seating / dining areas in an overall 'J's shape, all with rather anonymous furniture and decor. Standard Greene King menu. Two pool tables and a dartboard. Surprisingly good choice of real ales from the six handpumps, with Salopian Lemon Dream, Business as Usual from Derby Brewing, Titanic Cherry Dark and Dark Drake from Dancing Duck (£3.05) in addition to the IPA and Abbot.
