The Bear of Burton

The Bear of Burton, a food lover’s haven in Burton on the site formerly known as The Manor. It has been renamed in tribute to Robert Southey, author of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, who lived in Burton between 1799 and 1805.

Some of the standout features include a prix fixe lunch menu, afternoon tea, private dining rooms for groups of up to 26 people, and a Coravin wine system, allowing guests to sample rare wines, normally not available by the glass.

Guests entering from the rear of the property are greeted by the impressive terrace, perfect for outdoor dining or long evenings taking in the views. Inside, guests will find a warm and welcoming bar area for drinks or a more casual dining experience. There are also several stunning spaces in the restaurant suitable for private dining or special occasions.

The food offering is at the heart of the pub, serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. All dishes at The Bear of Burton are freshly prepared by the team of talented chefs who will cook all dishes from scratch with passion and care using an abundance of fresh, locally sourced produce. The menu reflects the seasons and the specials change daily, so that foodies can experience an array of delicious dishes.
