    We had a lovely evening out with my elderly mother. Her first meal out since this all began. Staff were spot on, attentive but with minimal contact with the table. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Would recommend.

    well.its false advertising..outside the front door and on their website it state eat out to help out ...50% off...but when the bill came £149.00 only £20 was taken off. At no point were we told or shown this This is decieving .Food was prepared to a high standard...still feel miffed at being in the dark...I see other dinners surprised as well. . Having said all that the food was delicious, the bread fantastic. They didnt cook my wifes steak to well done but was easy enough to cook a little further on. At some point I was going to ask for a table near a waiter as 2 tables were served drinks before us as we were seated 10 minutes before they arrived! But they were friendly staff and the food quality was excellent, all in the classic enviroment of The classic Bear Hotel in Woodstock. The vegtables and side were cooked respectfully and the wine sumptuous , shame on the pricing, it was our wedding Anniversay and wanted to make it special.

    Fantastic food again, having eaten there the previous night too. Chef personally served 2 of the courses and told us about them. Once again, the food really set the taste buds going. Service was quick. The only negative was the wine La Maglia Rosa Pinot Grigio which was 2015 per the wine list, but turned out to be 2018! Only spotted after we had drank it and paid £32 + service charge for it at the end of the meal. Complained to the waiter who queried it and came back saying the wine list were being updated. Took photos of wine list and bottle to complain when we checked out the next day. The Operations Manager said very little but removed the optional service charges from our bill. Astounded that their was no indication that they considered this unacceptable and wonder if the wine we drank the previous night was also of the year shown on the wine list.

    Superb 3 course meal including wine. Tantalized the taste buds. A fantastic eating experience! Service a little slow but gave us more time to relax and enjoy the experience.

    Frankly it’s poor. Dinner was the thing that really ruined the stay. It’s just sub standard in every way. Menu is unimaginative and poorly delivered. Bottom line is if even your chips suck.. and I mean the supplement cost truffle and Parmesan chips ... you are skating through the thin ice and sinking fast. Stay at the bear by all means but don’t eat there. Oh... and the wine list... laughable.... if you want to lead with wine I can buy in my supermarket ... that’s fine... but the 500% plus mark up is having a laugh. Needs a reboot and a back to basics start .

    Excellent prompt, friendly service. The menu was perfect for our lunch and the food was equally excellent. I have stayed, and eaten, at the Bear in Woodstock before and was most satisfied with everything this time.
