The lasagna is delicious but tiny, especially for the price. Please consider a larger portion as it has put me off coming back as I don’t feel I got value for money.

We can’t wait to be back inside next week!

Here is how it will work at the OWB:

*We will remain on Wednesday to Sunday opening, from midday. Food will be served Wednesday to Saturday 12-2.30 and 5-9, and Sunday all day

*We have an exciting new menu which we will share with your over the next few days! With a mix of old classics and some brand new dishes we are sure you will love!

*Track and trace details will still be collected for every customer - either via the NHS app or our text message sign in service

*Table bookings can be made now via www.oldwhitebear.co.uk - this is now for tables inside only. Outside tables will become first come first served. Bookings aren’t essential but are highly recommended!

*Inside tables - the rule of 6, or two households, still applies. All drinks and food must be ordered, consumed and paid for whilst seated. Table service will be available as well as our online ordering system. There is no bar service and no standing at the bar.

*Outside tables - tables outside will be served via our online ordering system only. Groups of 30 may now meet outside but must be seated and still adhere to social distancing rules

*Masks/face coverings must still be worn when not seated - such as when arriving/leaving or visiting the toilets (unless exempt)

The first step towards some form of normality!

See you all inside very soon!!

Unfortunately we have had to make the awful decision that due to the weather we won’t be opening today (Saturday). We really apologise and hope you all understand.

We are open tomorrow from midday with our fantastic Sunday lunches - and hopefully some nicer weather!

Thank you for your ongoing support and can’t wait to see you inside soon....!

(PS if you had a table booked under the name of Hatton, or if you know who this is; the telephone number we have for you is not connecting to let you know)

I have let WCJ know. See you tomorrow

Rickie Hatton was coming to the pub, well he is small and would get washed away in this rain........ good call 👍

Feel for you. It won't be long until you can open your doors properly.

Such a shame for you. Roll on a week on Monday.

So it looks like unfortunately the weather forecasts were correct and after a couple of glorious weeks the rain has found it’s way!

Please be aware that not all our tables are covered by the marquee we have in place. These were given first come/first served and as such some of you will be subject to the elements.

Every table has a parasol which should block out some rain but we recommend to bring warm/waterproof clothing should you be joining us, as well as something to sit on should the parasol not keep all the rain from the benches. We have a huge stack of towels we are using to try and dry the benches the best we can when you arrive.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

Happy St George’s Day.

What a fantastic day it is! We are extremely busy today and have no availability between 3pm and 8pm. As always we will do our best to answer the phone, but with being outside it is very difficult! For any bookings the best way is via our website at www.oldwhitebear.co.uk

From all the staff here at The Old White Bear we want to say a big thank you for coming to support us in our reopening week - we really appreciate it.

It has been a pleasure to hear the clinking of glasses, see the smiles on everyone's faces, hear the laughter and of course be there for the excitement of families and friends meeting up after such a long time.

Many apologies to all those whom we could not fit in. We hope you can all get the chance to come and enjoy our food and drink in the not so distant future.

Our diary is already starting to fill up and we highly recommend you book a table in advance by filling in our booking form at www.oldwhitebear.co.uk

We will always try to answer the phone but with working outside sometimes we just do not hear it or cannot answer at very busy periods - please use the web booking form or leave an answerphone message if you cannot get through.

We will always try and accommodate walk ups (we had inside tables in the car park this week!) but booking is the best way to avoid disappointment.

Our opening hours for next week are Wednesday-Sunday from 12pm onwards.

Thanks again!

It’s looking like staying dry and sunny for tomorrow which is perfect! We do have patio heaters which will be turned on if it drops colder in the evening, but please do wrap up and feel free to bring a blanket! A quick special thank you to everyone who has helped us with the re-opening, it is very much appreciated.

Please note that we are now fully booked for tomorrow. We are still taking bookings for other days via our website www.oldwhitebear.co.uk
