Bear Hotel online: information and bookings

Travellers look forward to stopping off at the Bear, a hotel famous far and wide for its welcoming atmosphere, historic character, convivial surroundings and good food. A cobbled forecourt, archway into the inner courtyard and 19th-century stagecoach timetable in the bar are all reminders of the Bear's former role.

The Bear's low-beamed bar, filled with antiques and warmed by a roaring log fire in winter, has twice won the ‘Best Pub in Britain' award. It sets the style for a place to stay which is warm and characterful rather than a hotel in the grand manner. You'll be looked after by friendly hosts Judith and Steve Hindmarsh, who are also proud of the Bear's reputation for serving interesting, freshly cooked food (which has won recognition in Britain and the USA).

Although a building of great antiquity - it dates back to 1432 - the Bear tastefully incorporates all modern comforts into its historic surroundings. Rooms within the hotel and the renovated courtyard - a blaze of colour with hanging baskets in summer - are individually furnished with carefully chosen fabrics. Popular with locals and visitors alike, the Bear is the social hub of the pretty little town of Crickhowell.

The regularly changing restaurant menu surpasses the high standard set by the bar bistro. Making the most of wonderful locally sourced produce, the kitchen brigade cook dishes to a high standard that has won many awards in the uk & recognition worldwide. We hold a large, varied, winelist, sourcing our wines with the care & enthusiasm expected from a hotel that has recently won a wine list award from Waverleys - the largest Vintner in the UK.
