The famous old coaching Inn first recorded application for licence was 1599. Overlooking an attractive Market Square.

The Bear was once the home of Thomas Lawrence, the portrait painter and boasts many famous visitors over the years, including George III accompanied by Queen Charlotte and more recently Mr Harold Macmillan when he was Prime Minister.

You will find a warm welcome, old beams, log fires comfortable lounges with fresh arrays of flowers, several bars where you may partake in the drinking of Wadworths famous local ales. You will savour a wide range of excellent fayre, either in the traditional elegant Master Lambton Restaurant, or less formally hot and cold lunches are served from the Lawrence room. In the evening you may enjoy a succulent charcoal grill in the 'Olde Worlde' atmosphere of the Lawrence Supper Room with its wood panelling, candle light and log fire in the huge Inglenook Fireplace.

The Bear Hotel has 24 rooms on 4 floors.
