Free round of Guinness on us!

Having been created in 1780, just as the British lost their grip on the American colonies, the White Bear on Kennington Park Road is full of vintage antiques, and the walls are covered in grainy photographs and satirical newspaper cartoons. Come Sunday, roast dinners are all the talk about town. With beef, chicken and rolled pork belly all available, each is served with mouth-watering sides, light Yorkshire puddings and delicious roast vegetables.

Ever enjoyed a 'Proper Northern Roast' amidst an eclectic interior of giant maypoles and wicker masks?
