"Was surprised at the quality"
The room was surprisingly cold for August. The location was great but the whole hotel smelt of unpleasant fat and seemed a little dirty. I wasn't asked what I wanted for breakfast and was given a full English when I'm a vegetarian. There were no bowls at breakfast. The coffee was luke warm and extremely weak (undrinkable). The eggs were very overcooked and the ingredients did not seem high quality. Unfortunately we didn't enjoy our stay very much. Read less
Likes:
The view and the old pub.
Dislikes:
Breakfast
Smell of fat in the hotel
Magazines from 2012/13 - lack of attention to detail

"excellant get away from it all"
Very warm friendly welcome set the tone for a very homely stay. The room was clean and pleasant, bathroom could have done with a shelf or cupboard but otherwise good. We decided to eat in the lovley old pub both nights and were not dissappointed food was excellant and led to two very enjoyable evenings. Read less
Likes:
Apart from the pub itself and the friendly atmoshphere, the location was idylic so quiet and rural yet all attractions just a short drive away.
Dislikes:
One thing that could be improved is the breakfast,more choice would be good,a small menu of what was on offer would be nice, especially as the dining experience was o such a high standard.

"Nice pub in a quiet location."
It took an age to find this pub, the GPS couldn't decide where it was. However, when we arrived the welcome was warm, the rooms were fine and the beer was good.

We stayed for dinner, which was OK but not memorable, then sat outside in the garden, which was very enjoyable.

After a pleasant night we had a the full English breakfast, which was huge and contained most things expected, with little plastic pots of jam and marmalade; acceptable but not exciting. Read less
Likes:
Welcoming staff, nice location (once we found it) and the pub was interesting and the rooms were comfortable. We also loved the garden with a distant view of Crich Stand.
Dislikes:
Nothing really. I think the food was OK, but no more.

Likes:
I loved the tucked away location as well as the simple decor in the bedroom.
Dislikes:
Only downside was the size of the burger portion - delicious but would have like a single burger option.

I guess it would be difficult to access in bad weather.

"Big let down"
We stayed at the bear on new years eve, the central heating was on and the radiators were hot but the room was cold. As it was new years eve we stayed up late and before we went to bed we asked a man behind the bar who turned out to be the owner if it would be ok to come down for breakfast at 10.30, he said that would be fine. We came down at 10.30 to find that the chef had gone home and all we got for breakfast was a glass of juice and a cup of tea made by a barmaid. Read less

"Very disappointing"
Rooms were absolutely freezing especially small bathroom. Carpet badly in need of clean. No hooks to put towels on in bathroom and toilet roll dispenser on door was useless. Stayed new year and although staff in evening were very friendly felt the home made pie was not up to standard - seemed more like leftover pie with massive chunks of tough beef. Plenty of veg and gravy was nice. Read less
Likes:
Friendliness of staff in the evening and the free food at midnight was very generous although we didn't eat it
Dislikes:
Rooms were so cold. had to ask for breakfast and was told we were too late so just got basic breakfast, wasn't asked what we wanted. Very poor service considering party must have spent a small fortune

"Great gastro pub with nice comfortable rooms"
One night stay following a pleasant 6 mile circular walk. Courteous staff welcomed us in to The Bear and confirmed table reservations before showing us to our room. Had a great meal, plenty of choice on the menu and being a pub some nice real ales too and a good wine selection to boot. The pub has a nice cosy feel and a wood burner to chase away the damp November chill. Read less

"Super friendly and helpful staff. Overall good value"
Stayed for 2 nights in September for a wedding. It's a charming old pub and the staff were so friendly and helpful. My room was a little bit dated but spotlessly clean and comfy bed with nice quality bed linen. Breakfast was GREAT on the Saturday morning but average on the Sunday (different chefs?). Overall, a nice place to stay. Read less
Likes:
The staff went out of their way to be helpful even supplying a bacon sandwich for my boyfriend who was too tired to come down for breakfast!It felt like they really cared and this was much appreciated
Dislikes:
A few things about the room- no bedside tables and a hook for hanging clothes, no wardrobe. Also, the breakfast on Sunday was not great (but I was spoiled maybe by such a great breakfast on Sat?)
