Welcome to The White Bear

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

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.

Take a peek at our range of great spaces right here, perfect for a party! Or if you're dreaming of a White Bear Christmas, start planning your Christmas celebrations with our pro party planners. 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!
