Exceptional dog friendly hotelPosted Oct 11, 2015
Pros: The location and dog friendliness
Cons: Nothing of note
Location: There are walks from the hotel
We stayed at the Bears paw with our Labrador Charlie. He was allowed everywhere except the kitchen and behind the bar. The food was plentiful and very tasty and the room was large and comfortable. The only downside was the village church's bells that sounded every 15minutes.

Nice location. Friendly staff, good food, clean and spacious room. Only slight annoyance was the noise from the kitchen extractors (at least I think that's what they were!) however they stopped at night so didn't affect our sleep.

Popular with localsPosted Jul 14, 2015
We have stayed at The Bear's Paw several times. It is a popular haunt with locals and the restaurant is always buzzing. The menu is varied and reasonable value, with a separate list of specials. We normally find it quiet overnight and actually enjoy the church bells, but this time some construction work was happening down the side lane and it was hot so we had to have the windows open and the noise was pretty intrusive. The decor of the well-equipped rooms and the comfort of the beds still please but things are getting a little tired round the edges now and the cleanliness not quite what it was. I am pretty sure we were given free water last time, none this time and I swear my pillow smelled of perfume from a previous guest! The basin tap wobbled worryingly and the shower came to a grinding halt mid-flow then proceeded to restart and burn both me and my partner. However, we did point out the last two at check-out and were assured they would be fixed.

A great location and a peaceful nights sleepPosted Jun 17, 2015
Pros: Location, Food, Ambience, Staff. Nothing not to like
Cons: Nothing really, though the church bell rang every 1/4 hour (2 mins early!!). Obviously not the fault of the hotel!!! Windows closed at night
Upon arriving got shown to my room promptly. What a wonderful location, with green fields all around. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room it's self was extremely spacious, I only wish I was staying longer than one night, to explore the area. Lastly the food, excellent. The table next to me had steak, which came on a hot plate and you basically cooked it to your liking (wish I'd stayed another day to try it), well worth ordering. The included breakfast was also excellent.

Great rural hotel with good food and nice rooms.Posted Mar 1, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel is a country pub, remote but a cosy little place with a great restaurant and warm rooms and open fire for the winter.

The best place we've stayedPosted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels
Really love staying here with our dogs. Everyone is so friendly, the hotel is lovely with a beautiful room, excellent bathroom and exceptional toiletries. The food is delicious with an interesting menu. Had lunch, dinner and breakfast and couldn't fault it. Managed to visit the Delamere Forest for a good walk, plenty to do and see in the area and so convenient from the M6.
