We booked this Hotel because we rather fancied staying in a “Ye Olde Inn” and to that extent the White Bear Inn ticked the right box. When we made the booking we chose a deluxe room at £80.00 for the night. Another couple staying with us booked a standard room at £65.00 per night. Our deluxe room and our friend’s... More

Hi, We recently stayed here for 3 nights. The room was a twin room, very clean with very comfortable beds and a nice big bath. The food - breakfast and dinner was cooked to a very high standard. All home cooked. Brilliant. Highly recommend. Thanks to Jon and your friendly staff. Matt

The White Bear is a nice place to stay in Shipston-on-Stour, it has very comfortable rooms clean bathrooms, and a good breakfast is included with a choice of cooked breakfasts. The bar is loud at the weekend when the sport is on, but there is always a good atmosphere, and is a popular venue for the locals to eat and... More

I cannot believe this hotels has any good reviews. The hotel stunk, we got back late after a wedding the bar had sports on very loud and pub wasn't quiet until 2 in the morning - we should have been warned that the gardens were extremely noisy until very late. It was, however, our room which was worst of all... More

Friendly service, clean room and good pub/dining. Easy to find on the main road in Shipston on Stour. Shops close by and a couple of other good pubs on the same road. Breakfast was OK, nothing special but set us up for the day.

We found this was an ideal overnight stopover whilst visiting the area and wasn't too expensive. Adequate parking round the back of the pub. Clean, comfortable rooms, all very quiet once the downstairs bar closed. Very friendly welcoming place, we had a few relaxing drinks in the bar during our stay. Didn't eat here in the evening as went out... More

Myself and my fiancè booked to stay here overnight. The hotel also has a pub underneath which is small and nice. Room was nice and clean but when you flushed the toilet the pipes would shake I don't know why but I didn't really like that as anything could've happened. The only downside to this hotel is that it can... More
