Full Description
  • The Bear is an idyllic place to host your big day - filled with character and oozing with romance! From delicious food and drink menus, a collection of cosy, country bedrooms to indulge in the day before and after, and a choice of rooms for the ceremony itself, we can help you plan the perfect day. Here at The Bear we have three rooms to choose from, whether you're looking for an intimate occasion or a big shebang; The Tower Room, The Terrace Room and The Library Restaurant. The Tower Room is a homely and cosy room that's ideally suited for small, intimate weddings up to 20 guests - Perfect for you if a small, private ceremony is what you’re looking for. The Terrace Room looks out over the gardens at the rear of the hotel, with views across Rodborough Common and is ideal wedding ceremonies of up to 70 guests. The Library Restaurant boasts stylish, country decor and can be used for wedding ceremonies of up to 90 guests, allowing you a slightly bigger party whilst maintaining a warm, comfortable atmosphere. If you would like to arrange a tour of The Bear of Rodborough, request a wedding brochure or discuss your big day with our wedding coordinator, please don't hesitate to contact us on 01453 878 522.
