Dining at The Bear of Rodborough

Feeling peckish? Come and join us for a bite to eat – whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, everybody’s welcome in The Library Restaurant or The Bear Bar and Pavilion – you don’t even have to be staying with us to bag a table or a stool at the bar!

The Bear Bar and Pavilion

Fancy a pint? We also have the warm, friendly atmosphere to go with it, helping you to relax after a day’s work or unwind at the weekend, whether you’re a local or a visitor – the more the merrier. Sink into a cosy armchair by the crackling log fire with a book, or have a chat with friends. There’s always an indulgence to be had in The Bear Bar, whether it’s a pint of cask ale at the bar, a naughty hot chocolate with marshmallows, or a pot of English tea with one of chef’s homemade cakes.

Feeling a little hungrier? Don’t worry; we have just the thing to satisfy your cravings with a choice of menus offering excellent food, from light, relaxing lunches to a good hearty supper in the evening.

*New for 2017* Make the most of the great British summertime in our new Pavilion Garden Bar where you can expect a garden party feel with fairy lights, deckchairs and classic Kilner jars filled with your favourite treats… there’s even a retro popcorn machine and slushies for grown-ups! Weather dependant, the Pavilion bar is open daily serving drinks and a menu of family favourites from handmade scotch eggs, hot dogs and pizza to a selection of salads, sandwiches and more. Garden games will keep the kids entertained whilst pigs ears are the perfect treat for four-legged-friends after their ‘walkies’ on the common!

A food lovers dream, but without all the fuss and formalities. Enjoy a country dining experience that is warm, relaxing and welcoming amongst fine food and good liquor. It’s everything a restaurant in the country should be, providing good quality food with a Great British flair that fuels any excuse to dine out.

Our Locations

Stroud, Gloucestershire

Nestled amongst The Cotswold wool towns, Stroud is known for its cafe culture, arts and crafts. Nicknamed the “Covent Garden of The Cotswolds” by Jasper Conran, the surrounding Cotswold Hills exhibits stunning views that stretch all the way to Wales. These have since inspired the work of the many artists who have come to live in the local area.
