The Bear is a traditional pub set in the heart of the charming market town of Horsham. Situated next to the historic Town Hall in Market Square, the Bear is full of character and is the perfect pub for vistors to the town centre.
Horsham is one of the finest towns in West Sussex, featuring a mixture of the historic and the contemporary, with characterful streets contrasting with the extensive Swan Walk shopping centre in the heart of the town. The Bear is in close proximity to the Causeway, known to locals as ‘the most attractive street in West Sussex’, with its lovely mixture of traditional buildings and mature trees. One of the Causeway’s best buildings is the fascinating Horsham Museum, a well-known free local attraction, and with weekly markets and the beautiful 60 acre Horsham Park, there is much to see and do. Horsham is also extremely convenient for Gatwick Airport, with regular trains between Horsham and Gatwick, on a mainline rail link to Central London and is well connected to South East England’s main attractions via a good road network.
Situated in Horsham’s market square, the Bear is easily accessible in the pedestrianised area of the town centre, and enjoys a prime location next to the historic Town Hall. The Bear is a key pub within the busy local leisure circuit, set amongst all the bars and restaurants in Horsham centre. With a reputation as one of Horsham’s friendliest pubs, this traditional ale house has a unique cosy ambience that attracts regulars, shoppers, and the town’s workers alike. A single lounge bar and small anteroom off, lead outside to an enclosed courtyard garden, which recently won H&W best garden, with a covered smoking area. There is a rear kitchen area directly behind the bar servery plus guest toilets on the ground floor and a basement cellar.
