Extremely busy on a Thursday lunchtime (always a good sign). Warm welcome, friendly efficient service, good advice about gluten-free food, and most importantly, lovely food, well prepared, hot and tasty. We will be back.

We waited about 30 mins for each course, and when the starters and mains finally arrived they were cold, or at best luke warm. In compensation we were offered 4 desserts (there were 7 of us), which also took 20mins to arrive.

The Bear Inn is a short drive from the M42 which is why I chose it as a place to meet a friend for lunch who lives in Nottingham and I was driving down to London from Manchester. We both ordered a roast. I had the shoulder of lamb and my friend had the turkey. You get a really traditional... More
