Description

Having been recently 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 welcome each guests with a warm embrace. You'll definitely leave well-fed and with a huge smile etched on your face.

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 03 Dec 2016

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 06 Nov 2016

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 30 Oct 2016

Reply from The White Bear

Thank you for the feedback, we are currently investigating the issue and will take steps to ensure this does not happen again. We take customer service and satisfaction very seriously and hope that you will give us another chance to display this.
