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.

After an impressive refurbishment in 2016, the White Bearโ€™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 Twiningโ€™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!
