Ye Olde Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 11, 2007

Now living in N America, its nice to go back in time to a hotel which is more than five years old !

Unique Quality: Across the road from the Market Square stands the Bear Hotel. Its origins are around the mid 1500's and the Black Bear, or the bear, as it became known, was frequented by several members of nobility including the Prince of Wales, Edward VII. It is a 24 en suit bedroom facility and makes a very comfortable stop-over when travelling in the area. Apart from royalty it was also a hotel at which Judge Jefferies (The infamous hanging judge)used to stay when officiating at the assizes. More recently Mr Harold Macmillan stayed at The Bear when he was Prime Minister.

The ceiling of the building is made up of old beams and comfortable lounges with log fires. There are several bars where you may partake in the drinking a good range of Wadworths famous local ales. Food is available in either the 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.
