Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The eating areas are split between rooms which makes for intimate and cosy dining. We went as a group of 4 for Sunday lunch. They have a really good vegan/vegetarian menu which was great as 2 of the 4 were vegan. The service was attentive,...the plates were hot and the food well cooked and tasty. Pricing was reasonable. Ambient background music which did not impinge on conversation. Would definitely recommendMore

An excellent lunch. Thanks to the chef for providing beautifully cooked food served on really hot plates, to the serving staff who were so helpful, friendly and efficient throughout. Certainly a place to recommend to friends. Thank you all.

I really like the food, seating a bit cramped, can get very noisy, service good, however be sure to check your bill, been given the wrong one twice, easy mistake to make but never an apology. Try and book a table in the main room...if you can, but as others have said could do with a roaring fire. That being said, I still love this pub and its food.More

Had an excellent lunch today from the Christmas Menu. Had salmon which was just so delicious. . So fresh and well cooked and beautifully presented. The beans, sprouts and potatoes were also excellent as was the sauce. Importantly the plate was really very hot. Makes...such a difference to the meal. Followed this with the Chocolate Brownie which also was so delightfully presented and tasty. This was followed by Coffee and a mince pie. Pastry was excellent and this was served hot. My compliments to the chef and also the lovely ladies who served us. One of the best meals I have had in a restaurant for a while.More

Called here for lunch and drinks. Pleasant pub thats actually more like a restaurant, very well decorated and friendly staff. We prefer a cosy pub but hey ho. We were unlucky to be seated in a small snug. There was a table of 4 elderly...folk, perhaps hard of hearing across the snug and we could clearly hear every shouted word of their conversation discussing who in their family had covid and every detail of it. Wife had fish and chips which was a large fish and ample chips. No complaints, pretty good. I plumped for chicken “stuffed” with black pudding , pepper sauce served with new potatoes and veg. This wasn’t quite so good. 3 really tiny new potatoes, two pieces of chicken with a tiny hint of black pudding. The chicken was dry but it was quite tasty but i was left feeling hungry after it, i should have gone for chips which looked a larger portion. The veg was lovely though. I had a couple of pints of their own cask beer which was nice and would have stayed for a couple more but for the atmosphere in the “snug”. The main room looked more appealing but we wont return incase we get stuck in the snug listening to shouty retirees again.More

Had lunch at the Bear’s Paw today. Good selection of dishes on the set price menu. Great service from start to finish. The food was perfectly cooked and presented and definitely came away feeling full and well fed. Pie of the day was steak, ale...and mushroom pie served with a choice of chips/new potatoes with fresh vegetables - excellent 🙂 Thanks for a really good and affordable meal.More

Spent a night here as a birthday treat and loved everything about the place. The bedroom was gorgeous and immaculately presented. Bar and eating areas are comfortable and well laid out. Extremely dog friendly and the staff were, without exception, helpful friendly and attentive. All...told, a lovely place where big and small things are well done. Highly recommended.More

We used Tripadvisor to select this atmospheric pub and were not disappointed; it was so good that we went back 2 days later for another evening meal ! On our first visit, we had the pork loin special and gammon steak and one of us...also had the fruit crumble with custard. This is a really old world pub with lots of beams and nooks and crannies to eat. The service was first class and the food was all delicious. Highly recommended.More

Dogs are not allowed in the main pub, although there is a covered, heated outdoor dining area where they would be most welcome.
