We were on a one night Time Out / Virgin deal for B & B. The Bear Inn (part of the Marston's Brewery Group) is opposite the Head Office and Clock Tower of the Clarkes Shoes factory, now the Clarkes Village shopping outlet, so very convenient and a short walk across the road. Car park at the rear of the Bear Inn, free to residents.
After checking in within the main bar area we were given the keys to Rose Cottage which is a stone building next door to the main pub / restaurant, Room 117 is at the far end. Through the entrance door and up the stairs we were pleasantly surprised, entering a very large room with 4-poster bed, settee, chairs and table with a built in wardrobe. The Bathroom was very big and clean. Views to the rear over trees. It was like staying in a holiday cottage rather than a pub.
We decided to eat in the restaurant with the normal pub food menu and the food arrived promptly and was good. A tab was set up and payment on departure next morning. Breakfast was okay if a little cold for the full English. Otherwise an enjoyable stay, our room was allocated as we were on the Virgin deal so perhaps other rooms in the main building or Rose Cottage not so good but worth asking at check in for this room or another in Rose Cottage.
