Welcome to The Bear Cross

The Bear Cross is a contemporary Bar/Restaurant, centrally located between Bournemouth, Poole, Wimborne and Ferndown and within easy reach of Bournemouth International Airport.


We serve quality, freshly cooked homemade food together with a selection of great wines and award winning Badger Ales. Whether you want an informal light lunch, a get together with friends or family, a business meeting with lunch or a special celebration to be remembered we can cater for your specific needs. Equally welcome are those who want to relax on our sofas with a coffee or pop in for a casual drink.


Some of our most popular features are our separate GLUTEN FREE MENU and our SMALLER APPETITE section, which allows you to have a tasty main course meal leaving room for one of our delicious homemade desserts.
