We are delighted that to be open again and welcoming you to our beautiful country inn. 

We continue to highly recommend booking at The White Bear, as demand has been exceptional post-lockdown.

Due to the nature of The White Bear and ongoing restrictions, we won’t be able to offer a choice between indoor and outdoor dining for the time being – it will be one or the other for all guests on a given day.

 We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

The White Bear is a charming Grade II listed country inn dating back to the 16th century nestling between two farms in the tiny hamlet of Fickleshole, near Warlingham in Surrey.

Located just five minutes away from Biggin Hill Airport and seven miles from central Croydon, The White Bear is a hidden gem known locally for its good food, real ales and tranquil rural surroundings. In the winter, we have three roaring log fires and candlelit tables, and in the summer you can soak up the sunshine in our large garden and terrace.

We're perfectly situated at the heart of the North Downs for the many walkers, cyclists and horse riders who visit us, and there's a spacious car park too – so there's no excuse not to visit us. We look forward to seeing you soon.
