“Super Hotel and Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Went to The Bears' Paw for a family Christmas meal last Thursday (12th December). Food was excellent - ate from the Christmas Fayre menu - £23.50 a head good value for a very nice 3 course meal.

Liking real ale the beer was also very nice and well kept.

Lovely atmosphere with really nice public rooms, only slight criticism would be that not many areas to sit if you're not eating - we were staying over and wanted a pre-meal drink before our family arrived and space was limited. We sat at our dinner table but at least 2 waitresses wanted to move us but there wasn't anywhere to go.

On staying overnight, our room was really nice with lots of space and nice touches. Bed was comfy enough and breakfast really nice. Would recommend both food and rooms.

I have eaten at The Bear's Paw on a number of occasions and each time is different. The good times definitely outweigh the bad and generally, the food is very good but I have had to send one or two items back and I have experienced some ridiculous delays as well. The last time I ate here was on Fathers Day and we had specifically requested two highchairs as we had two young children accompanying us. When we were seated, there were no highchairs at our table and we were told that none were available. I find this especially frustrating as it has a direct impact on the dining experience and it is a simple matter of pre-organisation.
However, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is good so I would probably give it one last chance before totally shutting the door on it.

My partner and I got a deal through Living Social for a night in this quaint hotel. The room was beautiful, one of the best I've stayed in. Spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. We ate in the cosy restaurant and to be honest I thought Gordon Ramsay was in the kitchen. The food was amazing, the meat and vegetables were bursting with flavours and the presentation was fantastic. The breakfast was fab too! We were made welcome by all the staff and would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: We had the standard which was fabulous

We were treated to a stay at " The Bears paw " our welcome was exceptionally friendly. Didn't have too far to walk to our room which again was very welcoming and warm.
Food was very good, staff extremely helpful. We would definitely stay again, also a lovely part of Cheshire..

Room Tip: Think they would all be good!

Second stay here at the Bear's Paw whilst visiting family in Sandbach. Love, love, love this place! Wonderful location in the country, great food, fantastic staff & the best porridge I've eaten anywhere! Aside... the dinner menu is abundant & varied, great wine list, generous breakfast choices & comfortable rooms.

Stayed in room 8
Great size room, nice bathroom, nice and warm (but not too warm) all night.

Tv on wall had excellent reception - viewable from bed only

Mobile phone reception almost zero and while the hotel has wifi we could not link to it in room on iPhones or iPad.

Bar was good with an excellent selection!

Breakfast was fab - included in room price, big selection, and service good.

Staff nice the whole visit, helpful etc.

Only negative was dinner the night before stay - expensive, and very much style over substance, lacking in flavour...

I would return and use hotel again, just not have dinner there.
