The Black Bear Inn, February 2000

An old inn right in the centre of Moreton-in-Marsh on the main street. I called in here for lunch and a pint one Tuesday. It turned out to be market day in Moreton-in-Marsh and the pub was full of shoppers and market stall holders taking a break. Certainly a good pub for a chat and gained a small insight into the life of a market stall holder and the early starts that you have to make.

A large carpetted bar with a cosy feel and rugs hanging from the otherwise bare stone walls and a big wooden bear and bear carving. Lots of windows too offering views across wide street that accommodates the weekly market to a row of shops in traditional cotswold stone buildings. Very friendly, efficient service at the bar. Donnington BB and SBO, produced locally, were available and on top form. They also had a good range of reasonably priced lunches on offer. They also have a separate dining room available. No sure whether meals are available on Sunday evenings.

All in all a very enjoyable visit, friendly service, clientele, good beer and good food.
