White Bear Devizes



Monday Market Street, Devizes, SN10 1DN


The White Bear is reputed to be the oldest pub in Devizes with lineage that can be traced back to the first Landlord in 1567.  Situated on the corner of Monday Market Street in the town centre this beautiful pub has all the charm and character of the traditional Great British Inn, with wooden clad walls and floors with a warming log burning stove.

The White Bear benefits from 6 en-suite letting rooms which are located on the first and second floors.


Trading Potential

The White Bear is a traditional Great British Inn with all the charm and character to go with it.  The 6 en-suite rooms are a very good source of income and have recently refurbished en-suites.  The pub has a loyal wet trade and currently a food offer that suits the present Business Partners.  We feel that with a menu change and marketing through social media channels to develop the room and food business this would enhance and promote this gem of a pub to the wider community. 


New Business Partner Profile

This is a great opportunity for a hands-on couple with preferably catering and letting room experience to develop all aspects of this solid business, a passion and pride to dispense our quality cask ales that are brewed just 200 yards away with a focus on great standards and customer service would be key.


Trade Areas

 The main bar has wooden paneling and flooring with a wood burning stove and has seating for 20.  Off of the bar is the main dining room with a further 20 covers and leads to the Ladies toilets, there is a further dining / breakfast room with seating for 12.  Access to the letting rooms, private accommodation, courtyard and Gents toilets are off the bar.  Fully fitted trade kitchen
