E TA left this review about White Bear

Originally a coaching inn, now one of the better ale pubs in Devizes as well as a friendly, comfortable local.  Slightly unimposing from the outside, I’ve walked past this pub several times, but I’m glad I came in this time.  There are plenty of architectural features on view including timbers, brick hearths and timber floors.  There are 3 main bar areas plus a few nooks and crannies, all very cosy.  There is a woodburner in one of the brick chimneys which provided a much-appreciated warm glow when we came in from the cold.  The staff were very helpful and pleasant, while the local cadre represented a wide cross-section of the Devizes population, human and canine.  Ales on were Animal Hop Kitty, Henry’s IPA, Penine Natural Gold, 8XT and COB Ordinary Bitter, plus draught ciders from Weston and Thatcher.  The beers we had were in superb condition, well worth time spent enjoying them, and not that expensive for the area.  Sadly there was no hot food on as the kitchen was closed, but there was a selection of cold snacks available.  Well worth a visit.

The White Bear is a decent looking pub and it is a Wadworths pub it is also quite close to the Castle Hotel.
The pub was smart enough inside with a few different drinking areas,there were plenty of menus on the tables so i would have thought it would fill up with diners a bit later on.
I had Henrys IPA and this was a nice drink there was also 6X plus another pump but i car'nt remember what was on as i was only looking for Wadworths beers.
