Christmas in Esher

Come and celebrate a very special Christmas 2024 with us here at the Bear Inn.

We have plenty of just-right-for-a-blowout areas in the pub, and some totally party-ready bookable spaces.

From the Study (spot-on for family festive feasts) to our semi-private Chesterfield Snug (perfect for the office annual drinks & nibbles party.)  We also have the beautiful Claremont Wing for up to 50 guests for private hire or 70 people for canapes.

And then (after a great night Christmas party-ing) simply head up to bed. With nine boutique-y rooms just a staircase away, you and your guests needn’t worry about hailing a cab home. A big breakfast debrief the next morning is just the ticket to set you back up again for another day of festive celebrations in Esher.

All the boring (but important) T’s & C’s are HERE for you.


Private Dining – Claremont Wing

Push the sleigh out this Christmas and book a whole space for your guests to celebrate in private. Tucked away behind the red velvet curtain is where you’ll find the complete Christmas experience.

Chesterfield Snug

The perfect spot for a smaller get-together this tinsel-tastic period.

Cosy up with colleagues, friends or loved-ones right by the fire for festive drinks & nibbles.

Festive Room Stays

Treat yourself to a stay with us during the fabulously festive month of December.

Enjoy a one-night stay in one of our super-cosy bedrooms, a meal in the pub (it’s foodie season after all), and a hearty breakfast to get you party-ready again the following morning.

What's On this Christmas

From Christmas Jumper Day, to Christmas Party Nights, and that all-important New Year's Eve celebration - there's lots of reasons to visit your fave pub this festive season.

Events in Esher
"Following a very enjoyable and successful 40th birthday at The Bear last year, I booked again for a Christmas party for 58 people. The evening far exceeded our expectations and everyone had a great time. The private room/restaurant is a great venue for private parties and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. Well done to all the staff at THE BEAR for a fantastic evening."


"Went here for a Christmas Feast with some friends in December and the place is a lovely spot and the food was great. Really nicely presented which makes a difference to the normal pub food that you can get these days. Saw some Christmas parties set up in the back and they looked great will 100% be looking to book in for next year."


"We had Christmas tipples in the Study and it was so cosy! The team looked after us as soon as we enquired right through the end of our very fun Friday Christmas drinks! We will be sure to come back!"
