Could you run this pub in Bristol?

The Bear Hotel is an iconic Bristol pub that oozes history and tradition. It is something of a hidden gem that’s well loved by its locals with a compact and convivial main bar that has a similar look and feel to a London pub. It’s famed over the years for excellent cask marque accredited ales, delicious food and has a great reputation for live entertainment, with the pubs backroom being home to the Be-Bop Jazz Club. The pub is also hugely popular for its showing of live sport, in particular the Rugby.

From the outside the Bear Hotel has a traditional roadside presence which is complimented by its cosy and charming interior. The trading area consists of the main drinking area with a large bar that serves the whole pub. It also boasts a back room, which operates as a dining room, a function room and stages the live entertainment. At the front of the pub is external seating and to the rear is one of Bristol’s best kept secrets, a beautiful courtyard garden that is a real sun trap.


This fantastic pub opportunity comes with spacious two storey domestic accommodation that consists of three bedrooms, a private kitchen and lounge.
