The Bear On Rodborough
Retreat to The Bear on Rodborough Common, nestled amongst the rambling hills of beautiful National Trust land with the odd roaming cow venturing in between. Sink into the ultimate escapism that’s a home away from home.
Escape the “hecticness” of everyday life, hang your coat up and sink into one of our cosy armchairs next to the warmth of an open log fire without a care in the world. The Bear of Rodborough is a little more than your average hotel on the side of the road.
Feeling peckish? Come and join us for a bite to eat – whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, everybody’s welcome in The Bear Bar and Pavilion or Library Restaurant – you don’t even have to be staying with us to bag a table or a stool at the bar!
Fancy a pint? We have the perfect friendly atmosphere to go with it, helping you to relax after a day’s work or unwind at the weekend, whether you’re a local or a visitor – the more the merrier. Sink into a cosy armchair by the crackling log fire with a book, or have a chat with friends. There’s always a treat to be had in The Bear Bar, whether it’s a pint of cask ale, a naughty hot chocolate with marshmallows, or a pot of English tea with one of chef’s homemade cakes.
