Hope and Bear

Blending the hip and the wholesome – a vibrant British pub offering the warmest of welcomes

Combining the best in British pub hospitality with individuality, character and quirky charm, the Hope & Bear stands proud on Cemetery Junction, just a short walk away from Reading town centre.     

Airy and spacious as well as intimate and welcoming, the Hope & Bear is the perfect setting for a laid-back yet distinctly memorable drinking and dining experience.  Whether you’re looking for a lazy lunch, family dinner or social eats and treats with friends, the Hope & Bear offers tempting and flavoursome food, a diverse and explorative drinks menu and an authentic, homely atmosphere to suit all occasions.   

Dog-friendly and boasting an open fire for those winter months, the Hope & Bear prides itself on its well-kept beer gardens, offering ample comfy seating for up to 150 people as well as outdoor heating for when the weather is a little more Britain than Bahamas.  Whilst the Hope & Bear’s interior blends the traditional with the contemporary, its outdoor space offers the perfect spot for al-fresco dining or just a glass of something special on a sunny afternoon.
