Basic accommodation in need of renovation

Booked short notice on late rooms.

Car park to the rear of the pub was ideal but on arrival the landlord advised that the room only had a sink and mirror and that there was a shared bathroom with 2 other rooms. The bed was comfortable but the carpet and room was not very clean and the bathroom was dirty. The landlord did mention that the rooms would be renovated later in the year and converted into en-suites. The pub itself was quite nice and the staff very welcoming. Maybe wait until the rooms have been renovated.

Nice pub with rooms to rear

The rooms appear to be converted stables or out houses, the rooms are to a reasonable standard especially for the price of the rooms.

The only downside is that room 5 (my room) looked directly into the rear court-yard and the other clientel talking and socialising was very off putting as every thing could be heard very clearly through the old single pane windows.

Very basic but clean

A rather scruffy pub with rooms directly over the bar - ok if you don't want to go to sleep until midnight.

No food available, and little choice elsewhere in Cricklade. Couldn't find anyone around the next morning to return the room key, so left it in the door. Owner's cat was very friendly!!!

Good value

Easy to find Inn with accommodation in a converted Barn at the rear with offsite parking at the back of the Inn.Ideal spot between Reading and Gloucester to "stop over" and explore the local area.Maybe the breakfast option should have been included in the price as limited eateries in the Village??

Friendly pub, nice room

The Bear is a real local pub with friendly staff and good beer.

My room was a clean and spacious en suite. The pub does not do food but there are several places to eat within a few yards walk so not a problem and offers lots of choice. Breakfast in the cafe opposite was also good value.
