Did You Know? - The White Bear

http://www.whitebeardevizes.co.uk/gallery/20120529-183116-5.jpg

We are delighted to welcome a fascinating new venue
The White Bear
 to the Devizes Food and Drink Festival.

"The White Bear has been an Inn offering hospitality to weary travellers and part of life in Devizes for 450 years. It  is reputed to be the oldest Public House in Devizes and there is a record of a landlord being here since 1567, in Elizabethan era. Originally called The Talbot, legend has it that it became known as The White Bear when a travelling group of entertainers came to town and lodged there with a performing bear. The original market cross was outside the pub in Monday Market Street."
