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...

It was quite good but I am so disappointed there is no more cote de boeuf. It was the best thing there. Can't they find a way to make it profitable somehow. Visited The White Bear on 2018-03-23

Reply from The White Bear

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leaving us a review, we do in fact still have our Cote de Boeuf on our menu so this may be a case of availability on the day which we apologise for as we understand how disappointing this can be. We do try our best to make sure every dish is available to on menu and we hope this doesn't deter you from visiting us in the future, The White Bear Team.

Strange booking process. They show the 3 areas available to book and each has an enquiry button alongside it - very separate. When we arrived we were told you have to specifically request that area in the comments, which isn't stated. The person working there also said they didn't know what their site looked like. Staff seem untrained and uninterested- told us they didn't have drinks that we were looking right at. Very slow. Have to repeat the order several times (have been before and had the same thing, so not just one of them) and stop them before they start pouring as you can see it's the wrong thing. Real shame because the pub itself is beautiful and the food is good. Visited The White Bear on 2018-03-22

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're very sorry for the negative experience you had with us through our booking process, thank you for pointing this out to us as this does look slightly confusing. Your feedback has been passed onto management and we're currently looking into ways to make this clearer. Your feedback regarding our service will also be taken on board as the customers experience is very important to us. Again, I'd like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and please feel free to email us for further investigation at whitebear@youngs.co.uk.

Sunday lunch at The White Bear was fantastic. Visited on Mother’s Day with husband and my two boys. Nice of the staff to present all mothers with a glass of pink prosecco. Staff were attentive but not a nuisance. 3 of us had staters, very nice indeed, although the ham hock portion was very small. 3 of us shared a Sunday lunch platter, which was delicious. Eldest son is vegan and the menu gave a couple of options which he enjoyed very much. Will definitely visit again. Really nice atmosphere, mixture of clientele. Would like to visit in the summer- the garden area looks lovely. Thanks to the staff at The White Beat for a really lovely Mother’s Day meal and surroundings. Visited The White Bear on 2018-03-11

Went to see The Lady with a Dog play at the White Bear Theatre last week. One of the very snowy days with lots of travel disruption but pleased that the show went on even with half the audience missing. The play was excellent with great acting and clever staging. The venue is intimate but very engaging. A very enjoyable evening and well done to the cast. Visited The White Bear on 2018-03-02

Always good. Always great beef. Always friendly and happy staff. Mind you, we only ever go for the Sunday roast!

Great food but RIDICULOUSLY short of staff. The staff by had held it together well but it was unpleasant to see the pressure they were under and it quite frankly spoils the whole experience . We had to go into the kitchen once to find someone and in two other occasions got up to get things for ourselves . NOT GOOD The stars are for the team on the night. For management they would get -5 stars. Sorry Visited The White Bear on 2018-02-23

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

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

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.

Great venue, great vibe, but the food is monumentally over priced, very low quality, and very small portions. So go for drinks and events, but eat first. Visited The White Bear on 2017-12-13

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're really sorry to hear that our food was disappointing and not up to usual high standards, we will be passing this criticism onto the chefs and the manager. Kind regards, The White Bear team

I always eat in the restaurant, before attending the evening performance in the Theatre upstairs. Food always excellent and great and friendly customer service. It has a very nice atmosphere and have recommended it to others, who share my opinion. Looking forward to the next occasion. Visited The White Bear on 2017-12-07

I honestly have nothing but wonderful things to say about The White Bear in Kennington. It’s become my favourite place to take friends and family.

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

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.

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.

Lovely atmosphere. Buzzy and the decoration eclectic and interesting. Great staff, personable, patient and polite! Food excellent, and hot when it arrived! Pub is very conveniently located just yards from Kennington tube station. Visited The White Bear on 2017-02-18

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!

This is a great pub so surprised it was not more packed when we went this week, The waiter was great. The chef shouting at his French assistant for oeuf's less so and we waited quite a while for the mains when it was not that busy. Brownie a little dry also. Not rushing back next week enough other local places, sorry Visited The White Bear on 2017-02-14

We had a group dinner at the White Bear this past Sunday for my club. There were 45 of us. The food was great and the service very friendly. Organising the dinner was also simple. Their online pre-order form was easy to use and very helpful. Thank you! Darren Visited The White Bear on 2017-01-22
