More than a coffee shop and a refreshing alternative to the traditional pub or bar, BEAR is at the forefront of the global ‘third wave’ coffee movement that sees coffee as an artisan foodstuff, rather than a quick morning pick-me-up.

From our three midlands-based stores, we offer speciality coffee, signature cocktails and craft beer accompanied by fresh, all-day dining. From breakfast to brunch, and lunch to dinner, our food menus are tailored specifically to each store and updated regularly with seasonal goodies; no matter which store you visit, there'll always be something new to try. 

Whatever the time of day, pop in and see us. We'll take you seamlessly from coffee, to cocktails... and then back to coffee.


Coffee splashing from cup


At BEAR, coffee is our world and we use it as a benchmark for everything we do. Full of flavour and satisfyingly delicious, our coffee is carefully selected from sustainable sources and we ensure every cup we serve is to an excellent standard.

Table full of food


Food matters, that’s why we put as much attention into it as we do with our coffee. Whether you are enjoying brunch, lunch or our evening menu you can guarantee simple & honest food made fresh to order.

The cocktails are as every bit as good as the coffee. You can enjoy a wide range of drinks from a classic porn star martini to our signature espresso martini, BEAR is the alternative bar.
