We stayed overnight at this hotel and were delighted with the rooms, our was room 4. I was there with my wife daughter and son in law, what a fabulous meal we had. I have eaten in some top restaurants over the years but this one would take some beating, the food was top class. Our waitress 'Charlie' and her...

A good pub with a good food menu not too far off the M6, we use for a break on the long road north! Refurbished in recent years but still homely and friendly with a good range of meals from sandwiches to the full three courses, something for everyone. Beats a service station hands down if you have a bit...

After receiving an email this week to say room was going to be unreserved as we hadn't given card details was a little unusual, quick phone call to Kirsty who confirmed error on their side, was still a little concerned when checking in, just in case we hadn't got a room. No need to have worried as all was ok....

Went to the Bears Paw this afternoon for cheese boards, mince pies, teas, and coffees with friends. This is a really nice country pub/hotel, in an area with walks both short and long around the locality.

Food and service here are always excellent. Worth it every time! In the past we also had the pleasure of having a 2 night stay at The Bears Paw. We found the housekeeper was lovely and happy to talk to our very chatty 3yr old. Our room was more than big enough for our family and breakfast was perfect. Can't...

Stayed overnight and had a business dinner there. The food was good not great. Mine, Beef Bourguignon, was a bit cold, but nicely made and tasty. But as a place to stay it is great. Large, comfortable, modern and well presented rooms, quiet location (but Warmingham is a bit "middle of nowhere") and very friendly service. For the price it...
