The Hungry Bear has completed its move to Fakenham Farm St Helens. We have transformed the old Solent View Cafe into the rustic wholesome home of the Hungry Bear. Installing a new commercial kitchen and furnishing the eatery with upcycled pallet booths, decorating with our brand colours and signatures pieces to create a fresh new look. The Hungry Bear dinning experience is now enhanced by the amazing sea views of the Solent.

We are an independent family run eatery with Stuart the Hungry Bear himself at the helm. Open all year round providing high quality but honest breakfast, brunch & lunch menu and a weekly changing diverse specials board. All ingredients are locally and ethically sourced as often as possible and all food is cooked fresh to order.

Currently open on Friday & Saturday nights serving delicious evening meals in a warm and welcoming ambiance. The Bear cooks his famous roasts every Sunday which often features lamb and brisket as well as pork and chicken served with home-made everything cooked fresh on the morning.

Many of our dishes are Gluten free or can be customised to be so and can also be made Diary free as well. The bear also caters for Vegetarians and vegans, if you cant see something you like on the menu get in touch and we can provide some bespoke options for you. If you have any questions relating to dietary requirements please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.

Large groups are welcome any time… if there are more than 8 dinners its best to let us know in advance. The Hungry Bear eatery can be hired for intimate private events currently seating 32 (inside). If you would like to host a private event such as Birthday or Anniversary party we can cater for your every request, producing unique menus and experience.

We welcome Bear Cubs who can choose a yummy dish from our Cub menu and also enjoy our Cub roasts on a Sunday.

We now have our landline in place (01983-718871) which our customers can call us on to make bookings or general enquiries. Bookings can also be made directly through our website or Facebook Messenger. Hungry Bear takes card payments as well as cash and we have Wi-Fi for our customers to use.
