Our room was quite pleasant and the restaurant was attractive and served good food. Two things disappointed us. Firstly, when we arrived at 1pm having had no sleep the previous night due to a travel problem we asked if it would be possible to get into our room before the official time of 3pm as we hoped to get some...

Richard, many thanks for your review, following your recent stay with us. It was nice to see that the room, restaurant and food met your expectations, however I was sorry to hear about the main areas of disappointment, as this is certainly not the norm. We will always endeavour to accommodate early arrivals at the Inn, and if a room...

We went with the intention of nibbles and a pint. We'd booked a table last minute but we didn't like the one reserved. Whilst I usually hate being awkward like this, the staff had no problems choosing us a different table which was great. There was a good range of ale on too. We went for a couple of sandwiches...

I chose the roasted chicken breast off the" Mains"menu, which at £14.95 proved to be an overpriced mouthful of tepid kitchen prototypes, presumably aimed at the sort of person who considers a high price and artistic presentation as a guide to fine food rather than mere taste or Portion size, I am aware that it would probably be expected to...

Many thanks for your review, following your recent meal with us. Firstly I am sorry that on this occasion we did not match your expectations, and that the food was not totally to your liking.

Off the beaten track, like most of the attractions in Cheshire. I returned to live here after a long time away in Europe Asia and the USA. Isn't it pleasant to drive where people are courteous, visit a grocery on a market square dating from the 9th century, or a few miles away to visit the centre of global radio...

Having last visited a couple of years ago was looking forward returning, not only for the food, but I lived there as a teenager in the 1980's when it belonged to my parents. We were given a warm greeting and shown straight to our table. The menus were extensive and offered plenty of choice, to start we had the Salmon...

We were looking for a dog-friendly hotel close to the M6 to break our trip from the South Coast of England to Scotland. We were extremely pleased with the hotel and restaurant. The room was excellent, the bed comfortable and everything was spotless. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and had a lovely meal and good wine with...

Interesting,having visited one of the sister restaurants 'The Fishpool' Delamere and found the place so good I expected The Bear's Paw to be of similar ilk, not quite the case. It's a long time since since I've been here and the interior has completely changed to fit the present fashion, all oak panelling and furniture.The old fashioned style is great...

What a find. A welcoming restaurant and team with great food. Witnessed a great act of kindness by the manager to a family with a dog who'd had a fall in the canal and needed warmth. The food was beautiful and staff lovely. Look forward to going back.
