We visited the White Bear twice on our canal holiday when we stopped over in Middlewich. We spent a couple of hours each time just eating, relaxing and reading the extensive selection of papers. Staff were very good (Ceri/Carry? was very pleasant and friendly). We were told what our choices would be like (homemade, large portion or not etc). The fish in beer batter was excellent and the homemade burger was a little dry but plenty of it.
Put a lock on the men's cubicle door and everyone'd be happy.
HIghly recommended for a pub lunch and relaxing atmosphere.
