Located in the historic market town of Devizes, The Bear Hotel combines traditional hospitality with matching decorations, and allures guests with bedrooms boasting an overall design reflecting the original 16th century features. Sightseers may enjoy a boat ride on the Kennet and Avon Canal, or discover local history at the nearby Wiltshire Heritage Museum. Guests are invited to en suite rooms kitted out with flat-screen TVs, work desks and hot drink-making facilities. Hearty meals are served in a classical atmosphere with chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows at the Lambtons Restaurant. The Bear Grills Bistro uses locally sourced produce to create a menu based on grilled steaks, burgers and vegetarian dishes. Visitors may savour fine wines or enjoy light snacks and real ales at one of the on-site bars. During their stay, tourists may chat over an afternoon tea in front of the open fireplace, or entertain themselves with live music at the Cellar Bar.
