One of the area's oldest pubs was given a makeover in 2012 with a £60,000 refurbishment. The much loved and highly tradition three bars will remain intact (saloon bar, public bar and snug)

"The Bear Inn, thought to be 500 years old, was bought by Shepherd Neame in 1736.

Situated opposite the Guildhall, the pub was well placed for customers to witness many of the town’s important historical events. These would have included a visit by Queen Elizabeth I and the town’s role in the Glorious Revolution of 1688 when King James II was captured by fishermen as he attempted to flee William of Orange’s successful invasion.

The Bear Inn is a popular town centre pub, which has featured in the Good Beer Guide for the last three years and serves traditional English pub food favourites, such as steak and kidney pudding, smoked haddock and toad in the hole."

The pub serves a good range of wholesome pub food very reasonably priced including:

  • Leek and potato soup
  • Pate and toast
  • Kippers and scrambled eggs
  • Haddock, mash, peas and poached eggs

This is not a games pub, there is background music but no TV or live music. The Bear Inn is a really nice old-fashioned pub in the nicest possible sense, and has an intimate friendly atmosphere. There are three separate bars and Navy memorabilia adds to the old world feel. There are some pavement tables to the front of the pub.

The pub is open from 10.30 am to 11pm weekdays, 10.30am to 11pm on Saturday and 12 noon to - 10:30pm. There is town centre parking nearby.
