What We Are About

The Bear is a traditional 14th Century pub located just a five minute drive from Farnham town centre. Inside the pub is a beautiful mix of old meets new with a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. We pride ourselves on serving food made with passion, delivered through excellent service to every one of our customers.

We boast a delicious menu of traditional British dishes cooked by our double rosette chef along with a bar that provides a fantastic range of lagers and ales, we always pour the perfect pint. As well as this we also run a selection of seasonal cocktails to accompany our vibrant menu.


The Bear prides itself on its seasonal, fresh homemade dishes. Our double rosette chef has designed a menu to suit all tastes and is happy to adapt any dish to suit dietary requirements. Whether you’re looking for freshly made beer battered fish and chips, a warming pie and mash or a slow cooked gammon with egg and chips, The Bear is the place to be! We also offer a delicious, homemade children’s menu to keep the whole family happy.

Here at the Bear we love to keep it interesting so we run various themed food nights throughout the week. Why not follow our Facebook page @ilovethebear so you don’t miss out on our special food nights?

Having just been voted Farnham’s Best Traditional Pub 2018 in the Lux Food and Drink Awards of course we offer a mouth watering, home made Sunday Roast!
