The Bear is a family-run pub in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, which has been lovingly restored by licensee Kim, a former language teacher, her husband Phil, a retired police officer with 30 years service, and son Chris, a Business Management Graduate.
Originally a Coaching Inn, The Bear has been transformed into a modern inn whilst still retaining many of the original features including a host of exposed beams. With a pint of one of our fine ales you could easily think that you were back in the days of horse drawn carriages!
There are two well furnished bars with a Restaurant/ Lounge that benefits from comfortable leather sofas and a public bar that has a 42" television, as well as a state-of-the-art darts board.
An extensive menu of freshly prepared food is available throughout the day including a special 'Best of British' Sunday Lunch. Traditional and Continental Breakfasts are available from 9.00am.
We are proud to announce that The Bear has recently been awarded 5 stars for Food Hygiene (the highest rating) by Shropshire County Council.
» The Bear Pub is open every day from 9.00am until late.

This area leads on to the safe, enclosed play area in which there are swings, a slide, a Bob the Builder sand table and a playhouse - perfect for keeping the children entertained.
Through the gate is a recently enclosed landscaped garden, perfect for watching our hens and ducks. We currently have 2 Aylesbury ducks, Quackers and Jemima 1 Indian Runner duck called Pumpkin 6 Rare Breed Hens and 6 rapidly growing chicks.
