Visited here for lunch. On arrival you could smell the open fire before we even got into the place which seemed homely. There was plenty of parking available and the village location is very pleasant. Have been before but at night. Upon entry we had to wait for the reception person to finish whatever she was doing on the computer... More

Following a ridiculously long wait outlet very inexperienced waitress came to take our order, she said "you'll be waiting along time because the lichen are in chaos", not really what we wanted to hear! Food was below average and served cold by inexperienced staff. Not good enough and no apology or reduction in bill, won't be recommending.

Our cooked breakfast order was taken at 9.00 and we then had some fruit. several other couples arrived and were subsequently served their breakfast order. We by this time were aware we had been forgotten, we called a waitress over and she rushed... More

We were booked in for a late Sunday lunch, but due to our morning activity being shortened, we arrived a good 45 minutes before our booking, fully expecting to wait with a drink until our table was ready. However, the lovely gentleman that greeted us managed to rearrange his bookings so we could get seated immediately, despite the busy restaurant.... More

My Birthday lunch at the Bear's paw was wonderful. The atmosphere is warm and comforting, a fabulous roaring fire and staff that are welcoming and friendly. We started with the black pudding scotch eggs_warm treasures with yolks like molten gold _Amazing.

The menu was extensive and we both went for the Burns Day Special. Haggis made into a cottage pie it was lovely. The service was excellent and it will not be 5 years before I go again.

Booked a table for 4 before Christmas for my birthday. Menu OK, but waited just over one and half hours for food to be served - reason given was they had a Christmas party on! Not a very good reason I think as all customers should have the same level of food service irrespective of party size - so not... More

Returned as promised, this time for our annual Christmas meal. My colleague organised menus and orders beforehand, our understanding was to pay upfront also. However, on arrival, said colleague was running late and although we were shown our allocated table it wasn't to everyone's satisfaction. Seats weren't suitable so were swapped. We had to ask for Christmas crackers to be... More
