We are thrilled to announce that The Bear has won the Silver Award in the UK-wide The Great Outdoors Walkers Pub of The Year category.

We love dogs at The Bear, but we are also well aware of the need for responsible dog ownership in the Brecon Beacons. Here’s a helpful article written by one of the National Park’s Ambassadors.

Gin of the Week

Gin of The Week at The Bear. This week: Whitley Neil Parma Violet Gin, served with lavender sprig, blackberries and Indian Fever-Tree Tonic. Delicious.

Real Ales at The Bear

On the guest pump, Gower Gold from the South Wales Coast. The brewers say: “t has refreshing citrus flavours and the lovely aroma of the cascade hops. Brewed since December 2011, this beer has become an all-round firm favourite. Gower Gold clocks in at 4.5% abv and is available all year round.” We say “delicious”. #gowergold #realale #thirstquenching

We are a community hub which is the long-term home of organisations like Rotary Club of Crickhowell and Crickhowell Choral Society.
