Welcome to The Bear

The Bear is situated in the heart of Esher, located on the Portsmouth road. The Bear dates back to the 1500’s and has been a coaching inn for weary travellers heading to the docks at Portsmouth. Nowadays we continue to look after weary travellers, weekend breakers and corporate clients alike. We offer a stylish bar and restaurant showcasing the best of British food & drink along with a variety of private hire spaces available for work meetings, birthday parties and family gatherings.

We also have our Stable Dining Room for up to 45 guests for sit down or 70 for canape’s. Give us a call and let us know what we can organise for you.

Just what I look for

The bear hotel is located in Esther, very good location for the hotel as you can go out in the town and there’s a lot to do. I really enjoyed my time staying at the bear, lovely staff very nice and professional.

A venue which pays attention to detail and the small touches.
