Venue Overview

63 High Street, Cowbridge, Vale Of Glamorgan

Beginning life in Medieval times as the townhouse to Llanmihangel, a local country house - both still standing today, it has become a popular central point for drinking champagne and watching the World go by. Complete with nooks, crannies and romantic tales, there is a special spot to suit all tastes in our beautiful hotel.


This is your dream day and it shouldn't be anything less than perfect.

Passionate about making your day unforgettable – masters of the bespoke, we use our impeccable eye for detail to hand craft a day just as unique as you.

Our little hidden gem in the market town of Cowbridge is the epitome of understated charm.

Our gracious 18th Century Georgian Ballroom and the modern glitz & glamour of our St Quentin’s Suite provide perfect surroundings for your ceremony and wedding breakfast.

The manicured gardens of the Cowbidge Physic Garden along with the hustle & bustle of the High Street create the beautiful backdrop required for that all important wedding album.

Our wedding at The Bear was fantastic and everything we hoped for and more. The team went above and beyond to make the day seamless and stress-free.

The venue is perfect and even looks special before the decorations are up. We loved that our ceremony and reception could be in separate areas. It

meant there was a lovely flow to the day and there wasn't a massive wait in-between.

The courtyard was absolutely gorgeous in the sunny spring weather!

All our communication before the event was also super easy, and they constantly reassured us and answered our questions.

Thank you so much, Amy, Gemma and the rest of the team. We truly appreciate all the hard work that went on behind the scenes!!

We are thrilled with how our wedding went at The Bear. Throughout the entire planning process, Amy and Gemma were responsive and made us feel like our wedding mattered. Their experience helped us to consider aspects of the wedding that we would not have otherwise, e.g., checking that the gardens

would be open when we wanted our photographs. We went for a twilight package as this suited our needs and budget. It was great that the venue offered this flexibility as it was a big factor in us choosing The Bear. In the lead-up to the wedding day, Amy and Gemma were really on top of organising the fibre details Being able to drop all of our decorations the day before, and go through the last few details helped to iron out the plans but also allowed us to envision the wedding as the room was dressed for us, which was very exciting. On the wedding day, all staff members were welcoming, helpful and friendly. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the bedrooms and friendly the staff were. We loved that whilst the hotel is a public space, whilst we were at the wedding, it felt very private and intimate, as the area is separated from public areas. The wedding food BBQ buffet was delicious, and the waiting staff were great. We would not change anything about our wedding; we had the best time, and our guests all commented on the wonderful venue. Thank you all so much, Leigh and Matt

What an amazing venue to get married. What amazing people that work at The Bear to help that day be amazing. Amy and Gemma - hat's off to you. You really did go above and beyond. Even when things were a bit tough leading up to the event, Gemma, you kept me calm and your support was overwhelming.

Thank you. The entire team on the day from Reception to the kitchen team, waiting and bar staff could not have done enough for us. Everything was perfect down to the smallest detail. That just shows how well you get to know your clients and understand what they want. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Bear for any function especially as a wedding venue and I'd recommend Amy and Gemma in a heartbeat. You've made fans for life with myself and Billy. We will definitely be back and who knows may even spend our 1st wedding anniversary with you. Thank you again for making our day the best day of our lives. xxx

The staff at the Bear Hotel went above and beyond to make sure we had the very best day we could have wished for. From the moment we made our initial visit until the time we checked out after our wedding day, The Bear did their best to make us feel special. We have received countless comments about

how amazing the venue, service and food was (and many have said it was the best wedding they have been to!). I can’t thank Amy or the team enough for everything.

We plan on returning for our 1 year anniversary and we cannot wait.

What a day for us as married husband & wife! It couldn’t have gone any better and was the perfect day!
All companies that we booked spoke with Amy beforehand & The Bear were so accommodating during the day due to the weather! Our preparations completed and everything was set in place!

Amy helped us in the morning for our final fittings and what will happen during the day (she was always around), the food was amazing for our guests along with their accommodation for the night. We drank the night away and everyone enjoyed such a lovely day! The sun also was a bonus!
We will always come back to The bear as it holds a special day for us forever!
