I visited with a friend and we both had fish. My friend had fish from the main menu and I had the special. Both were well cooked and presented. The staff were very attentive without being obtrusive. The wine, a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, was lovely although a little pricey, but this is Surrey! A really lovely atmosphere and although there was a football match on, it did not intrude on our catch-up chat. England were not playing! We shall definitely return. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

Hi Marilyn8S

Thank you for your lovely write-up of our pub. It has us grinning all the way up to our gills.
We do pride ourselves on selling the best fish in the area at The Bear; The New Zealand 'Featherdrop Bay' Sauvignon Blanc is just perfect with seafood dishes and what price can you put on perfection?

Hope to see you again soon,

Kind regards,

Oliver Smith
Assistant Manager

Family of 4 booked early evening dinner for Father's Day. Very easy to book on line. Warm welcome on arrival from friendly enthusiastic staff. Very attentive service throughout. Delicious food. Recommend asparagus & prosciutto and also garlic prawn starters. I opted for roast beef main course which was delicious with great variety of vegetables. Disappointingly my roast potatoes looked re-heated and burnt. Shame I couldn't eat them. Everyone else enjoyed their mains and we even saved room for ice cream, chocolate brownies for desserts which were delicious. Would love to return but perhaps choose a less busy day.

Hi Sheila M,

First of all, thankyou so much for choosing our pub on such an important day of the year. We remember you fondly and enjoy the excellent feedback you have for our team and many of our dishes.

We are however very apologetic about the potatoes you were served during your meal with us. They were not above and beyond the expected standard and we wish to make it up to you. We would love it if you could come back for another one of our 'delicious' Sunday roasts, this time with potatoes of the more fresh and fairly-cooked variety.
As for our former Chief of Potato Quality Control, he has been sent back to the fields.

Kind regards,

Oliver Smith

Four of us came to dine at the Bear and were late for our reservation as we had to travel some distance. Jack looked after us immediately and we had a bottle of Pinot Grigio to keep us occupied until the others arrived.
Food was served promptly, was hot, well cooked and delicious! Puddings were tasty and moist, very fresh food. I would recommend this lovely eatery!
