Description

Having been refurbished but still boasting the homely, welcoming atmosphere that made it a favourite for locals, the White Bear on Kennington Park Road is a picturesque gastro pub, full of character and vibrant life.

Having first opened back in 1780, it's one of the oldest pubs in South London and has been a champion of locally breweries for centuries. From beautifully balanced craft beers to flavoursome real ales, the bar is bursting with all the irresistible libations you'd expect to find in a warm gastro pub. Better still, the venue serves a vast array of food, ranging from freshly baked catch of the day to condiment filled burgers and belly-warming roast dinners. Food induced comas are a certainty. 

Being older than the American constitution, the venue has collected it's fair share of quaint antiques over the years. The walls are covered with old newspaper clippings and satirical cartoons of Britain's most famous politicians and figures. With cosy armchairs and leather sofas spread throughout, the fire place keeps guests snug during the winter months, while the idyllic beer garden offers a serene place for guests to cool off in the sunshine. The pub has bags of character and welcomes each guests with a warm embrace. You'll definitely leave well-fed and with a huge smile etched on your face.

The White Bear Kennington - London Gastro Pub Review

The White Bear Kennington - London Gastro Pub Review

Kennington for me has always felt like the space between. While I once visited a hidden magic show, heckled at vampires in a basement and have had a few half-pints there, it's always seemed like thoroughfare on the way down to Oval, Brixton or...

The snug is a great space to book and the staff were super friendly. The only negative was that the mens toilet flooded, so made it a bit gross and swampy in there. Over all though we had a great night! Visited The White Bear on 2018-02-16

Reply from The White Bear

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we're really happy to hear that you experienced great service and we think our snug is the best part of the pub! Apologies about the men's loos, although happy to hear you still had a great night with us. We hope to see you again soon, The White Bear team.

I enjoyed my birthday dinner here with a party of 10. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming and I was able to hear and talk to all my guests at the table - which added to the enjoyment. The food was nice and service, friendly. My only tiny bit of advice would be to look at the lighting along the bench seats as it was a little harsh for those seated along that side wall during the quiz (it was explained that the dim switch was linked to the quiz night area). I’ll definateky be returning and recommend it to anyone who prefers a nice quiet venue to catch up with friends. Visited The White Bear on 2018-01-31

The Sunday lunch was excellent, the staff were very friendly and they were happy to make our visit enjoyable. This is also a child friendly pub and the decor was modern, mixed with many traditional artefacts. I will certainly make a visit again in the future especially when the weather gets warmer as they have a garden to enjoy the sunshine. . Visited The White Bear on 2018-01-28

Brought my small group of staff here for a Christmas lunch. The white bear couldn't have been more helpful, they printed up a menu sheet just for me, with no prices on, so nobody's felt awkward ordering. Service was just right. Our 'lunch' went on until after 10.00pm, no rush, just a relaxed offering if more wine at just about the right pace throughout the evening. We all had a great time .

It's always a pleasure coming to the White Bear - it's our local, so we go for the quizzes or for a few after work pretty regularly. They have lovely staff, the food is great and Andy, the quiz master, is basically family by now! In the summer, they open the doors to their nice little garden byr cold and rainy nights indoors are just as nice. Visited The White Bear on 2018-01-03

The service was friendly enough but the roast dinner was pretty bad.

Four of us went for lunch at The White Bear on Thursday 26th Oct. We had a ll been to the White Bear before and will be going back. It's great to have a restaurant of this standard, especially since the arrival of their current female chef. (Apologies for not know people's names) The food was fresh, of a very high standard. Our time was spent feeling comfortable, relaxied and we were able to talk and each other. We had a very enjoyable time., and our experience was enhanced by our waiter., whose energy was sunny, fun and caring. Thank you all Visited The White Bear on 2017-10-26

Service and food brilliant. Two negatives: the bread for my sandwich was lightly toasted which it should have states on the menu but it think it was to hide it being stale. My friend didn't even eat the bread that came with her soup. It was empty at Monday lunchtime which isn't that surprising but did negatively affect the atmosphere... so lovely sitting by the fire though! :) Visited The White Bear on 2017-10-11

Food excellent, as always at the White Bear, but service really fell short on this occasion and did slightly spoil the meal (which was annoying as it was for my friend's birthday). After being seated and waiting an age we had to ask for menus and then later flag down a waiter to finally try and order (this happened again with dessert). We ordered starters which the waiter forgot and they served the mains straight away. One waitress was very apologetic about everything and they were good enough to automically remove the service charge from the bill without us having to ask but I am not sure if we will go here again (which is the shame because the kitchen is really very good). Assume problems were result of not having enough staff on to cover a busy Sunday lunch service. Visited The White Bear on 2017-07-30

Didn't like that I could see the chef putting roast potatoes on plates with his hands - no gloves. Because of this I can only give one star. This put me off my meal. Soup was too salty. Visited The White Bear on 2017-05-21

HANDS DOWN THE BEST CHEESE BOARD IN LONDON. Really impressed with how geared to British items they are, and really loved the venue itself. Cutest little hidden garden which we had no idea about until we were in there!

Very pleasant restaurant space and a good choice of both snacks and more elaborate menus. We enjoyed the hake and lamb dishes and sharing the 3 cheese plate. Accompanying wines by glass excellent choice too. Lovely little theatre and enjoyed a play and production that was a bit different from the norm. Visited The White Bear on 2017-05-13

This was my second visit here, having been very impressed the first time for Sunday Lunch. The staff are great. The atmosphere is welcoming, relaxed and friendly. However, this time the food was a big disappointment. I, and one of my guests, had to send our main courses back because it was way overcooked or maybe just old. We were offered a free drink and new dishes. This was fine. My alternative dish was ok. Not really the standard of food I'd expect from a Young's establishment. In fact, I've never had a problem like this in a Young's restaurant before. There's always a first. Visited The White Bear on 2017-04-01

Everyone enjoyed the evening, the food,(except the pork chops which were tough and tasteless) was outstanding. Well prepared and plentiful, the staff were very attentive and polite. Our orders were well organised. We went to see the play, "The meeting" which was highly original and entertaining. The prices were reasonable for a London venue. 13 of us came up from Whitstable, and we would not hesitate to visit again for a similar performance. I would definitely recommend The white Bear, thank you to all who looked after us. Visited The White Bear on 2017-03-18

Excellent food and great atmosphere only marred by both signature dishes being unavailable and another 2 of our 6 meal/desert choices also not being available. I would suggest either; mentioning this as our drinks order was being taken at the begging or better stocking up for Saturday evening. Great place but very disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback for your time here. All food is prepared fresh on the day so it is possible that popular dishes may run out if we are unexpectedly busy.

I know this local (to me) pub very well and cannot recommend it highly enough for both small groups, large events, eating drinking... I recently held my 30th birthday at this venue, a sit down meal for 54, and I could not fault anything about the night. The food was great, flexibility on music, décor and all those little touches was excellent and the service - faultless. The service was actually the part both I and all of my guests rated most highly; intelligent, efficient and more than friendly at all times. I will be back for another big event soon!

Well where do I start We arrived and it took 20 mins to get servers at the bar, not enough staff. The pints where not filled to the top so short measures. We were shown to our table to find the aircon on in Jan, we asked for it to be turned off 4-5 times it wasn't until others complained that it was finally turned by this time we had moved tables. The service was rubbish we wanted to order a round of drinks we ordered 1 drink and before we could order the next the waiter ran away. We finally got to order drinks again short measures. Well the food we the starters where bland and lacking and some what small. The pies where nice but one of us had the pork , small chop Small amount of vegetables, which were cold no potatoes , When we complained the waiter just made a joke of it and said all he could hear was it was fantastic ( shame it wasn't as high hopes) In all would not rush back and the fact it's run by youngs makes it more scandalous. It wasn't cheap. Visited The White Bear on 2017-01-13

We came in on Sunday with a party of 12 as part of my husband's 50th birthday celebration. The atmosphere was chilled and lovely, the staff were great, and everyone's food was fabulous. Gammon was really thick and the fat chips were perfect. I think I was the luckiest person though, as I had the most STUNNING Barley and Oxtail Risotto. I can honestly say I would cross London to have that dish again. That kind of cooking takes care, time and a bit of love. I could barely hold a conversation while eating it! Great pre booking customer service from Charlotte, who checked in with me a couple of times to discuss my booking. Well done to everyone involved.

Really beautiful interior post-refurbishment (particularly at the back), absolutely love it! There was some confusion amongst the staff as there had just been a menu change, plus there were no fish cakes, which my friends had been really looking forward to. Vegetarian options were lacking, which was disappointing. However, the consensus was that the food was good, and the interior and friendliness of the staff created a super ambience. Will certainly visit again at some point. Visited The White Bear on 2017-01-07

If by 'party' they mean have dinner then The White Bear put on an OK evening. However I'd suggest this was an incredibly misleading description not far short of deceit. Food was OK...underwhelming compared to the pre event billing, but not bad in itself. Jazz singer...one person was in a corner but didn't catch our attention until we were leaving...a bit too subtle and way, way short of a NYE party act. Service was a new low for me. Never have I been asked if we'd had our main course, seconds after ordering dessert...by the same person. A lost soul. A massive disappointment of a NYE mostly because the evening was claimed as a burlesque party...and was nothing other than dinner in a pub. Is it too strong to use the word 'liars'? The upside is that at least we caught the last train, having left by 11. Happy New Year. Visited The White Bear on 2016-12-31

Reply from The White Bear

I'm sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our service on New Year's Eve. In no way did we intend to mislead you. We advertised a Parisian themed set menu, a live jazz musician and a themed cocktail menu which was exactly what was delivered. This was not a ticketed event so essentially it was just a nice evening at the pub which myself and the rest of the staff put a lot of effort into organising. I'm sorry that this was not to your liking and that the service you experienced was not up to standard.

We booked for 4 people on Thu 22nd. When we arrived the dining area was taken over by one Christmas party of 30 people and another of 15. We were between them next to the music system which was loud. The two parties were drunk and shouting and eventually started singing, banging on the tables and dominating the space. This is fine given that they were celebrating Christmas but it would have been good when we booked to tell us that there were two large parties and us. As it is, we couldn't hear each other speak, had to ask for the music to be turned down and left without pudding because we'd had enough. Of course people want to have fun but allow people to make an informed choice. We'd have come on another night. Visited The White Bear on 2016-12-22

Hi Overall event went well. All the communication pre event was well organised. However, on the day we had to wait an hour for the starter to be be served. The staff kept promising it was arriving every 10 minutes. Overall the feedback from the group was good food and ambiance but service needs to be brought up to speed for group bookings.

The service was very slow and it wasn't that busy, we went on a Saturday lunch time. The chips were very greasy they had to be sent back. We ordered the sea bass and that also had to go back as the dish was swimming in grease. All the main dishes didn't come at the same time, one of the main dishes arrived 5-10 mins after we received the other meals. It's ashame as this pub is close to my house and was hoping it would have been better, I would go for a drink but I will not go back for food. Visited The White Bear on 2016-12-03

We loved the new look, the atmosphere was welcoming and the service was very good; friendly and helpful. The food was good on the whole, and when we suggested the beef could have been softer, we felt this was taken on board. We hope so, as there is a real need for a good restaurant in this area. We will be back and wish The White Bear all the best for the future. Visited The White Bear on 2016-11-06

We sat near the kitchen where a large argument occurred which made me and my party uncomfortable. Understand that frustration happens but it would be better in a more private area Visited The White Bear on 2016-10-30
