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!

The Bear was relaunched in 2015 by Zazu’s Pub Company, an independent (and award-winning!) South West pub group. Since then, we’ve focussed on good food, good people and good times; everything a neighbourhood pub should be! Pop in for a pint or stay a little longer…
Upstairs, we have eight rooms available to book for your weekend getaway (or perhaps a bit longer..!) and our friendly team are always on hand for recommendations during your visit to Bath.

Simple, fresh and good value: our passion is for good food served well in great surroundings. All our food is prepared fresh on site and our menu changes regularly to make the best use of seasonal produce.


Unfortunately the kitchen is currently closed.

The Bear Hotel rooms are open for bookings and we look forward to welcoming you for a city break, weekend getaway or business stopover…

Our eight rooms are modern in design with a retro twist; mid-century furniture and original floorboards but with hand crafted beds, modern en-suites and luxurious duck down and feather duvets. 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.

Check in is from 3:00pm, and check out by 11am – we always aim to be flexible, so don’t hesitate to contact us. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the building.
