7 reviews of White Bear in English
Over recent months the portions have gotten smaller, prices have gone up, and the service is always slow.
Most recently I had to resort to bangers and mash (3 dishes were already sold out and their burgers are nothing special), and was bitterly disappointed. Not only could the waitress not tell me what sausages they were before ordering, but the dish was bland, cold, and the mash tasted like it was from a packet.
I may return for drinks & atmosphere, but never again food. Pricey given the quality.

Under new ownership, its not only a great student pub but, more recently has got very popular with people who've just played sport relaxing with a few pints - especially badminton. Its very reasonable price and the atmosphere is brilliant, what ever you do though YOU MUST BUY FOOD, its the best! I particuarly like the chips!
Situated at the top of St Michaels Hill and only a stone’s throw from the University of Bristol student campus, this used to be a really popular pub that has seen a downtown in fortunes lately. Right beside an Indian takeaway of slightly dubious qualtiy, the White Bear has a lot of character as a traditional pub- very cosy and with plenty of the dark oak that can mark a place out as being ‘an old man’s pub’. There is a lovely beer garden at the back and a pool table at the front so this is a really nice place to come on a sunny day.
I was very sad when my freinds and I stopped frequenting this place!! It is a lovely pub with a great atmoshpere, reasonable prices and local to one of the best areas in Bristol. It has themed night, and a great outside are. If your near-by do stop in!
The White Bear is a Cotham institution: a big pub that is a popular haunt with many Bristol University students since the pub is on the doorstep of the university campus. Drinks and crisps are cheap, and if you can bear the smell of stale beer, this pub would be a good choice for relaxing after lectures.
