Metro - Bear (Bath) - Interior

The Bear Inn

Venture ten minutes outside of the city centre towards Bear Flat and you’ll stumble across the Bear Inn. With a lineage tracing back to the 1770s, this spot isn't just known for Snowy, the life-sized polar bear guarding its entrance - it's a beloved landmark in its own right. Rebuilt in 1956 after the original fell victim to the Blitz, the Bear today balances contemporary style with the homely, welcoming atmosphere of a traditional pub.

Sundays at the Bear are a feast for the senses. Whether you fancy roast chicken complete with all the trimmings, succulent roast beef with a kick of horseradish cream, flavourful porchetta accompanied by cider apple sauce, or a delightful vegan Wellington, there's a plate with your name on it. Each dish is served with a generous helping of roast potatoes, mixed kale, maple-roasted carrots, mulled red cabbage, and, for the non-vegan options, a Yorkshire pudding—all drenched in delicious gravy.

Fancy a chilled Sunday lunch in our beer garden or inside among family and friends? Be sure to book a table to make sure you’ve got a spot ready and waiting to kick back, tuck into a great meal, and soak up the city from one of its best spots.
