Bistrot Pierre

Fancy some classic pub food? Step back in time and enjoy the delights of the gastro pub where you can unwind and enjoy a traditional English pub menu and atmosphere.

This historic inn first opened in 1662 and following an extensive refurbishment, The Bear has once again become the bustling, riverside tavern it once was, serving a fantastic selection of cask ales and over 20 wines by the glass.

The atmosphere at The Bear is friendly and informal. The stylish interior has a warm, cosy feel with beautifully restored wood panelling, two central fires and an iconic pewter bar top. There is also an outside seating area for you to enjoy a drink and watch the scenic river views.


The Bear sources local suppliers that can provide the best ingredients for the delicious home cooked dishes. Choose from quick bites and sharers, or enjoy something more substantial, from tasty burgers to authentic curries.
