We visited Bear as they were open especially for Valentines and Pancake day. Offering hot drinks and a selection of pancakes. We had Oreo and Biscoff with a hot chocolate orange. All of which was delicious, we have missed Bear as it’s been closed through...lockdown. This was a brilliant idea and great to see their lovely faces. Mum has never been and couldn’t stop commenting how beautiful it is and how it feels like you’re in a city centre, modern, trendy and light! We can’t wait to sit in but for now we will for sure be coming back for take-outs. Thanks Bear! MadeinnorthwichMore

Absolutely love this place, amazing staff, food, cocktails and the quality of the coffee is next to none, cant wait for lockdown to be over so I can have a sample a few greatly missed cocktails and food again.

We have been coming to Bear since it first opened, the coffee and food is always amazing quality and super tasty. Just had takeaway Oreo & Biscoff pancakes and they didn’t disappoint! The staff are always really friendly and you can tell they genuinely want...to provide a good service. It’s a great atmosphere on the Bear Social nights too, can’t wait to go and treat myself to a cocktail after lockdown!More

Me, my wife and 3 year old son have been here a few times now, the latest visit was a treat for my son on his birthday. The food and drink was really nice and service was great and they were only too happy to...accommodate special requests, like type of cup for my son and speciality types of milk in the drinks. Definitely looking forward to visiting again once it’s reopened.More
