The Bear Inn in Wiveliscombe is a traditional 17th century coaching inn that reflects the town’s rich heritage and strong community spirit – a true local pub

We attract a lively crowd and the atmosphere rarely fails to deliver. Our ethos is simple – to provide a central hub to a lively and eclectic population; we have something for everyone and pride ourselves on being a proper pub!

We offer most things you’d expect form a traditional pub – with darts, pool, skittles, cribs, poker, quizzes, live music and more to occupy your time.

Our menu compliments the relaxed and social atmosphere – we offer a wide range of meals all lovingly cooked from scratch by our fantastic kitchen team. Our burgers are immense, our handmade Pizzas are legendary and our bar meals are just the ticket. Check out our ‘Menu’ tab for more details including our fabulous ‘2 courses for £10’ offer on Sundays.

Jon operates our own ‘Black Bear Brewery’ from the bottom of the garden with ‘Wivey Best’ proving a huge hit with customers young and old….check out the ‘Brewery’ tab for more info’.

We look forward to welcoming you….Cheers!
