If it's Masham then it has to be The White Bear. Excellent rooms that are really comfortable, immaculate and well equipped. Although we stayed for one night it was ideal. The new decor in the bar and restaurant was refreshing and pleasing. Breakfast was outstanding especially as we could eat outside. (perfect Yorkshire weather) However, I only allocated four stars...

We stayed one new year in a cottage within the village so we were keen to return to the area in the summer as places like Fountains Abbey, Harlow Carr RHS and Birmham Rocks we very much wanted to see at this time of year, the countryside is beautiful in high summer and just taking walks from Masham itself in...

We stayed 2 nights and had 2 excellent meals and 2 fabulous breakfasts. If anything the breakfasts are better than the evening meals - the continental selection is expansive even without croissants or pain au chocolats being available. The staff were very friendly and the rooms large and very comfortable. Although our room was the closest to the bar/restaurant there...

Staff offered excellent customer service. The menu wasn't extensive but what they offered was tasty and of a good portion size. Most main dishes about £11 - £15. Their chips and desserts were particularly good.

I had lamb and it was cooked to perfection. The prices are in line with the food but not too expensive to enjoy. There was a family reunion of about 20 at...

Masham is a beautiful town with lots to see and lovely walks. I have been to the White Bear many times and always enjoyed the food be it a sandwich or a main meal. Today I had the fish and chips for the first time and I can say it was superb. Lovely white fish home made tarter sauce etc....

Stayed three nights in my wife's home village from years ago and, once again, had a great experience. It's all really good: the building, its location, the rooms and the food for breakfast and dinner. Further, all the staff are just excellent: friendly, professional and they remember you on a personal level..........that's impressive. Overall, a quality experience at a very...
