Stayed one night here as an emergency pit stop on the way back home from North Wales, due to my other half having a biking accident while in Wales, breaking his leg and requiring surgery! The long journey proved too much and the pain got the better, so we stopped at the M40 services and tried to find somewhere to... More

Our favourite local has been taken over by Wendy, Jan and Ollie...and its fabulous again!. Warm and cosy, friendly staff and it looks loved again. We had a fabulous dinner a few weeks back and a lunch ...all was well cooked and very good value. The wine is good and served in nice glasses..which means a lot to me. Well... More

This was the first weekend for serving food, after the new management took over. Outstanding! I am very particular and usually go to high end restaurants. Last minute decision took us into the White Bear for a Sunday roast. I have been to this pub many times and the new management have this place clean and refined, uncluttered but still... More

Visited on New Year's eve for few drinks with friends (been before too), then stayed overnight on 17th January for launch night after new management team had taken over. Couldn't believe improvements that had been made in just 4 days of taking over. Would describe The White Bear as a traditional English coaching inn, with rooms. Located in heart of... More

Good 1st impression, nice atmosphere and friendly staff, food was good and not badly priced and freshly cooked, dog friendly, will definitely return and may stay the night next time. Small car park. The only real concern was they had ran out of a few things on the menu by 1pm, but an alternative was quickly found.

White Bear is located in a wonderful little town which is not overwhelmed with tourists. It is very close to Stratford Upon Avon and not difficult to find. Do stay there. You will love this city in England. Josh prepared a great breakfast each morning at White Bear. Our room was at the very top up a steep set of... More

Me and my wife met up with my brother as it was halfway between where we currently live, each driving about 140 milles. We were met on arrival by the licencee and made most welcome, the rooms had been very recently completely refurbished, with new beds and ensuite. Our room was in the old brewery and the floor sloped some... More

We spent our first night of a .3 day walking trip here. The White Bear is situated bang in the center of town so handy for all facilities & transport connections. It's an old building with an attractive facade but been modernized to some extent inside. Our room was above the public bar with a big bay window overlooking the... More

Stayed here for 1 night as a group of 10 girls for a wedding of a friend. We couldn't have been more welcomed, they organised early check in for us and then found taxis out to the venue and to pick us up again even though it was the last night of Shipston's Proms festival and most companies were booked...
