A former coaching inn, The Bear at Crickhowell has been welcoming guests for 500 years and still extends the same warmth, comfort, cosy atmosphere, good food and wide selection of drinks as ever before.

The Bear in Crickhowell has been a resting place for travellers and a meeting place for friends since 1432. A traditional and historic coaching Inn, The Bear offers a warm welcome, whether you are exploring the beautiful Brecon Beacons, or wanting to eat great food and drink in comfortable surroundings.

Eat at The Bear and sample a wide menu of beautifully cooked local foods, with traditional tastes mingling with modern dishes. Dine surrounded by chatter and laughter in the bar, in the more intimate candle-lit surroundings of our table-service restaurants, or amongst the floral displays in our summer gardens.

You can stay in oak-beamed bedrooms at The Bear, just as stagecoach passengers did. Or sleep in more modern rooms in our converted stable block. You can relax in a spa bath or four poster bed. We have rooms for every occasion and every budget at The Bear.

At The Bear, we know that creating the right atmosphere for your business meeting or social occasion is important to you and your guests. We have function rooms that can seat up to 60 people and we can offer a range of catering and drinks options – featuring locally sourced food and drinks.

The Bear has conference facilities for business users with free WiFi extending throughout the Hotel. And when the businesses or entertaining is done – there’s the bar, the restaurants, garden or the surrounding countryside to relax in.

We are very dog friendly at The Bear. Guests can eat with their dog in the bars and The Bear is surrounded by the beautiful Brecon Beacons - with hundreds of miles of walks to suit dogs of all abilities!
