Finished Bear Illustration

Welcome to The Black Bear, a beautiful medieval building right next to St Alkmund's Church in the heart of Whitchurch. We've got good honest food and drink, including decent wines that we blend and import ourselves and a beer that we brew ourselves, too. We've also got a lovely courtyard garden which is very popular. Give us a try, we'd love to see you and think you'll like it.

See you soon.
