The White Bear

Welcome to The White Bear

You've stumbled upon the perfect pub for the Winter. We're the pub with a snug and a brand new Winter Wellness Menu ready for devouring.

Did you know we’re now taking bookings for the Six Nations? Chin drippingly good burgers, sofas you could just sink into and your very own private snug to watch every exciting try and tackle, why would you watch the Six Nations anywhere else? Need to check the rugby dates? Head to our ‘whats on’ page to find the 6 Nations fixtures, matches and timings.

Steeped in history, the White Bear theatre pub has been on this site since c.1780 serving great beer and ales.

After an impressive refurbishment in 2016, the White Bear’s interior is a stunning example of traditional pub meets modern design with an eclectic collection of artwork and bric-a-brac. On the original wooden bar is a fantastic selection of craft beer, ales and lagers as well as an extensive wine list and collection of spirits and Whisk(e)y. When the sun shines, enjoy your favourite tipple in the beer garden which is also home to three bee hives!

The kitchen is open daily, serving traditional British fare made with seasonal, fresh and locally sourced produce. Free WIFI is available throughout the pub along with a range of Twining’s Teas and Street & Co. Coffee. Located in the heart of Kennington, a stone's throw from Kennington Park, the Northern line (Kennington & Oval) and the KIA Oval, we look forward to welcoming you to the White Bear soon!
