Excellent location, pub was packed with a good crowd, didn't eat , but the restaurant was also full.

Arrived very early, but the staff gave us a room, which was great after a long flight.

"Staff enhanced the stay."
Attended the local Point to Point event at Lockinge. One night stay at The Bear proved to be a very enjoyable experience. We use The Bear fairly frequently as we have family in the area. There has been a marked improvement, particularly with the staff - some form of training must have taken place because they we were all very attentive and customer focussed. Room was very good, shower/ bathroom had hot water at a reasonable pressure. Everything worked. Read less
Likes:
Staff performance. Nice to see that The Bear actually sponsors a fence at the Point to Point. Would think that more racegoers would use the Hotel if it was actively advertised prior to the event.
