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...

The White Bear was undergoing major refurbishment when we arrived, so difficult to judge it under normal circumstances. The room we were given had been recently renovated and was good, though lacking a little in shelf-space in the bathroom, hooks in bedroom etc Cleanliness good. The chef we were told was unwell - another nearby fantastic pub with great food... More

We recently spent one night at the White Bear as part of a walking holiday. I can only describe the experience as ‘awful’. The rooms were dirty, there was a layer of dust on the towel rails, the bathroom floor was a different colour where some parts had been partially cleaned and other parts not. Whilst the pillow cases were... More

My family and I had an excellent stay here. The facilities are clean and usable, the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room to not feel cramped. The staff was the crowning jewel of this Pub. Both of them were friendly and open to conversations, even providing us with plates when we brought back take-away from another restaurant.... More
