About us

Formerly the White Lion, this large estate pub has undergone a major refurbishment. The large room to the left of the main entry is now an upmarket dining area, while to the right is a comfortable bar. Sheltered patio area to the rear.

I may be being a bit generous but the waiter saved the experience, some what. There's was pretty much half of the menu not available, which considering the menu isn't very big anyway, meant very limited options. Food was actually OK but massively over priced. We used a Groupon voucher which meant we payed just over half price, which felt right (hence not losing stars for this). The waiter was super friendly and attentive though.

Not sure why this place is rated 3.5/5. We dined today for a late lunch and thought the venue, service and food was fantastic!! We were greeted by a friendly front of house staff member who took our drinks/food order, came to see if we needed anything, also popped over to see if we were satisfied with our food and drinks. Cant complain at all. The food itself, haloumi fries as a starter, lamb shish kofta and a 9oz steak were cooked spot on and throughly enjoyable. All in all a great experience and highly recommend it. Great to see a huge vegan and vegetarian range too.

Super cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The have a pool table in a separate room and quite a few vegan options. I had the vegan tofu and chips- generous portions and tasted nice :)

Nice place but could have been better. Needed a bit of a sweep so I didn't have to dodge the left over food under the table. Then we sat down we got told that the menu was unavailable except for pizza and kebabs. The food that did arrive was actually very nice.

First time eating at the Funky Bear for Sunday lunch and first impressions were not good as it looked in need of renovations (especially the gents toilet). We ordered 2 x beef, 1 x chicken dinners and 1 cheesy burger and the food was average - good, but the service was slow. Staff were friendly and pleasant but looked bored. We were overcharged for 2 extra drinks (apparently a computer error) which was partially corrected. We ordered 2 drinks (1 cider & 1 coffee) after the meal but the coffee never arrived and also had to be removed from the bill. Menu prices online need updating as we were charged more on the day. Glad we used a Groupon voucher but won’t be returning anytime soon.
