Welcome to The Bear!

A 15 minute walk from Bath’s historic city centre, The Bear is a landmark for locals and visitors alike, thanks to Snowy, the life sized polar bear, guarding our main entrance!

Relaunched by the team behind Zazu’s Kitchen, an independent group of pubs, The Bear is here to be the neighbourhood pub we’d all like to have at the end of our street; focused on good food, good people and good times. Our doors and arms are open, we hope to see you soon!



About Us

The team behind the Bear is Zazu’s Pub Co., a Bristol born and Bristol based independent company with six award-winning sites across the Southwest.

We see our job as providing a great place to meet, socialise, eat, drink, debate, sit peacefully, send an email, catch up with friends or enjoy a coffee, a wine in the garden and just ‘be’…. All day, everyday.

We focus our attention on making sure we offer our local communities the very best environment to spend their time in, from great food and drink to great service from the minute you walk through our doors.

See you at the bar, and if you want to find out more about our group of pubs,
you can do so over here…

Simple, fresh and good value

We are driven by a passion for good food served well in great surroundings; all prepared fresh on site by our chef’s loving hands. Good food means different things to different people, but our team likes to cover as many bases as possible.


From ales to fine wine

With ever changing local beers, real ales and ciders, plus a minimum of 20 Gins on the bar at any one time, we like to think we’ve got something for everyone. A diverse wine list of both old and new world; coffee roasted by The Gurus at Extract Coffee, and Loose leaf teas from Canton, we’re here to quench your thirst!

All individual and all slightly different, don’t hesitate to call us directly, to get the room that best fits your needs.

All bookings include complimentary 24-hour on-site parking, perfect for wandering down the hill to explore Bath, and all hotel guests are invited to use the pub as they wish throughout their stay.

Refurbished and replanted, our patio is perfect for taking in the sun, from dawn ‘til dusk. Shielded by planting/foliage/apple trees it feels both sheltered and in the thick of it. And when the sun does go down, there’s candles and fairy lights a plenty.

Alfresco dinner? Don’t mind if we do!
