The Bear Hotel is a local landmark, with Snowy the life-sized polar bear above the entrance. Set on the edge of Bath's historic city centre, it has an uncluttered contemporary style, with various seating and dining areas. The Bear will normally have two real ales on, on weekdays, with up to four at weekends. Great Bear is the house regular, with guests typically from Moor, Bristol Beer Factory, or Timothy Taylor. A quiz is held most Wednesday evenings and there is occasional live music. A plan to repaint the much loved Snowy another colour was rapidly retracted after a massive outcry. Snowy will remain white!
