|Terrible - cursory service was just one crime in this temple of the Greene King ethos - from the outside, the building is comely despite the presence of roundabout but the beer garden makes no use of its size and location while the default attitude of the young British male - to never allow others to think one is not cool, hard and in control - shines through as it does so often amid our grubby suburbs.|

|This pub is very close to the canal, So ideal after a nice walk on the towpath, the food is very good, large menu, and will serve small meals for children, we called in on the Sunday with our daughter and grand daughter and found the manager friendly, which was good as he is the chef, 4 good beers, and bar staff excellent, choice of 3 roasts plus full menu, in the following week we used the pub a lot and will be calling in next time we pass. |

|This has been my usual pub for Friday lunch for the last few months (mainly due to location), and it has certainly been more than acceptable. The food nothing special, but perfectly acceptable for the price, and the beer is usually very good, and it varies regularly. The staff don't go out of their way, but provide a good service. Only once the food was very slow to come out (about 40 mins), usually we always got it in reasonable time.|
Apart for the tv (which the landlord was always happy for us to turn down) and the slot machine (which isn't too noisy), the pub has got a bit of character, and is quite pleasant.

|I can't believe that this pub has low rating. I go there regularly at lunchtime, and the food is the best pub grub I have ever had. Normally the specials board in a pub is filled with stuff that has been bought in cheap, frozen stuff that really shouldn't be kept any longer, or experiments to be tried out on paying punters. Not in this case - the food in the White Bear is always absolutly fantastic.|
Sure, it's a bit basic inside, a little tatty in places and in need of a bit of a makeover, but I bring my wife and 5 month old baby here, and it's certainly clean enough for us all to eat in.
I'm not sure what it's like in the evening. It's probably a bit 'working class' judging by the character of the pub, but we're not loaded residents who live in gated communities (a la Moor Park) and neither should we all aspire to be. Let's look after local pubs with character, or in a few years' we'll only have one choice: Wetherspoons and its clones.
Well worth a visit, especially for food.
