F.A.Q.s

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes!
Unfortunately no. All spaces are reserved for hotel guests only. Nearest car park is at 54 East Street car park.
We always recommend it especially Friday & Saturday. We are not very big & can get very busy. We do hold some tables back for walk-ins but if you are a group please book. Any bookings over 7 have to contact us directly as we can not always accommodate larger groups.
We stop serving at 23.00 & kick out is midnight.
We sometimes serve food if we are having an event so please check our social media @darkbearbar for information. We have a small selection of bar snacks normally.
Afraid not. We don't have any draught but have a small but good selection of canned or bottled beer. We are a rum forward cocktail bar. We recommend our friends at Pursuit of Hoppiness & The Woodman if you love cask ale!
No. Although we have a rum list of over 200 bottles we have many more spirits as well. At DarkBear rum is our speciality and we love to show off how diverse the spirit is. If you think sweet when you think rum we can definitely change your mind. However we stock many gins, whiskies, tequilas, mezcals, bitters & liqueurs. Want a great martini then no problem.
