Welcome to The Bear Hotel, Esher

Standing tall at the top of Esher High Street, The Bear Hotel is Esher’s historic flagship and has been home to many travellers and locals alike for over 300 years. The Bear Hotel boasts 9 boutique bedrooms and an enchanting back dining room ready to deliver our premium dining experience.

Join us in our restaurant where we serve seasonal British dishes, all created with the freshest ingredients. Take a look at our Butcher’s Block, featuring the best prime cuts of meat, sourced by our new Head Chef, Giam, who always ensures a succulent cut.

Ideally located a short distance from Esher train station and only a few minutes from Sandown Racecourse. The Bear Hotel is famous for hosting race-goers, business travellers, and families alike. With a dog-friendly attitude in our bar area too, everyone is welcome.

Escape to Esher this winter and enjoy our Cosy Night In (for £125 each) or Festive Retreat (for £275 each) offer with us. Snuggle up in your duvet in our stunning bedrooms, enjoy a decadent meal next to the fireplace and warm up your cockles with a glass of mulled wine after exploring local sights such as Hampton Court Palace.

Christmas is quickly approaching and we’re gearing up to celebrate Christmas responsibly this year with you in the heart of Esher. Get in touch with our team and see how we can make this Christmas special for you!
