Warm Welcome to the White Bear

Catherine and her team welcome you to the charming White Bear nestled in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells, just a short stroll from the train station, boutique shops and a stone’s throw from the famous Pantiles. Taking it back to its former glory – a family friendly pub proudly serving the community for generations.

Quintessentially British with a hint of sophistication, the White Bear’s bar and restaurant is elegant, but laid back. Casual enough to feel relaxed, smart enough to feel special. Serving lunch and dinner along with our perfect Sunday experience there’s something for everyone.

Come as a guest, leave as a friend.


We are proud to be a British Young’s pub and think ourselves incredibly lucky to be housed in Kent, the Garden of England for its abundance of orchards, hop gardens and exceptional local suppliers meaning some of the finest produce from local farms and fishermen make its way on to our menus.


Sundays are for lie in’s, relaxation, family time, newspapers and indulging in good food and drink.  Join us on a Sunday for BBQ Sharers from our charcoal garden grill. *Available from June – September. In Winter we roast and in Summer we BBQ.


With working from home (WFH) becoming the new norm, we understand that people may be after a change in scenery.  Whether it’s avoiding distractions at home, needy pets, or wobbly WiFi causing you to tear your hair out, why not support your local this summer and escape to the pub?


If you’re searching for that perfect present, or can’t decide what to gift a loved one, colleague or friend, why not treat that special someone to the gift of the pub.


Enjoy dining al fresco in our beautiful City terrace – perfect for those after work drinks, family get-togethers or simply a light bite on a lunch break.

The food was out of this world! The atmosphere was perfect and loved where we were seated. The staff couldn’t of been more helpful and friendly so all in all we all had a great time!

Amazing Celebratory Dinner

Incredible atmosphere – a great mix of people dining on a Saturday night. Staff very friendly and helpful, food was delicious, cocktails were spot-on (even the mocktails are great!). Beautiful interior – everything clean & sparkling. Couldn’t recommend this place more.

Buzzing Saturday Night

We went for a family Sunday lunch and we all were blown away by the quality of food, the atmosphere and the decor. Between us we tried the beef, pork and lamb. All of our plates were left empty and every part of the dish was tasty from the meat to the cabbage, carrots and roast potatoes.
