Welcome to The Bear Hotel, a Historic Hotel with a modern feel. Sitting on the banks of the River Dun in the thriving market town of Hungerford and on the borders of Berkshire, Wiltshire and Hampshire, The Bear is ideally located for exploring the North Wessex Downs.

We understand that finding the perfect wedding venue is hard enough, but ensuring that they understand your requirements is another ball game. Here at The Bear Hotel, Hungerford we go that extra step every time and go into every detail to make sure that your big day is just how you had imagined it would be.

Our venue is licensed for Civil Ceremonies which are held in our Riverside Suite. The Suite is self-contained, seating up to 70 guests, and has a conservatory with private bar and terrace overlooking the River Dun and Bear Island.

Once owned by Henry VIII and given to his wife Catherine Parr, the beamed ceilings and uneven floors not only flaunt its historic roots, but also provide that sense of romance that everyone is looking for when they book their wedding venue. We have 40 en suite bedrooms which have all been refurbished ready for 2018.

    Brilliant day

    What a good venue, wth family and friends travelling from all over it made their journeys very easy. The service and food was very good and Lindsay the Wedding Co-Ordinator was a great help and took all the stress and strain for us, so we could enjoy the day.

    Thoroughly recommended

    Myself and my now husband held our wedding ceremony and reception at The Bear Hotel on 13th April 2006. All of the staff there were very efficent and more than helpful. The food served was delicious and nearly everyone said so , both adults and children alike. The Bear Hotel certainly gave us a wedding day we will never forget and we would recommend it to anyone who might be thinking of holding their wedding there.

    Thank you

    Paul & I just wanted to thank you for making our wedding day so special & memorable. James & his team were absolutely wonderful on the day & attended to our every need. Everything was faultless. Please pass on our grateful thanks to them. The setting was perfect & Paul & I will certainly return on many occasions in the future to enjoy your hospitality. Our family too have expressed their delight at all the arrangements, the setting & the service. We look forward to many return visits. With renewed thanks & best wishes.
