I've been eating at the Bear Cafe forever! Incredible, after all these years, it's still consistently on point. I was surprised to hear of new management. We sat in the dining room stream side. The service was good. For dinner, we shared the warm spinach...More

Delicious dinner, and wonderful setting. Looks like we could eat there many times and try a great variety of exotic dishes, and as well attend a musical act or concert.

We were recommended to this restaurant and were not disappointed. We went along on 2 successive nights and by UK standards dined early (about 7.00-7.30) We took advantage of the daily specials which were both good value for money and very tasty. We sat at...More

Perhaps the timing was correct, perhaps we were lucky but I cannot sing praise high enough for the meals we enjoyed at Bear Cafe. The salmon was perfectly cooked and seasoned, the endive and watercress salad full of flavor and texture (crisp pears and dense...More
