Marlborough is a beautiful, ancient town bristling with fine buildings - and they don't come much better than The Bear Hotel.

Arkell's bought the pub in 1987 and these days there is no mistaking a place that is enthusiatically listed in The Good Pub Guide.

You could say that The Bear Hotel has it all.

With its front in the High Street, facing the old Town Hall, and its side in The Parade, The Bear Hotel is a magnificent sight. It is late 19th century Jacobean and Georgian in style and has looked this way since 1889 after it was luxuriously re-built, but there had been an inn here at least by 1757.

A directory of 1914 was emphatic in its praise of The Bear Hotel. "The house is fitted with all the latest and best appliances," it said. "Wines, spirits and cigars of the finest quality" and "good stabling". It was then called The Bear and Castle and at some point was rechristened - possibly to avoid confusion with other Marlborough pubs with similar names.
