Local cask ales and classic menus with a modern twist - all with an air of the baronial amongst old prints, oak panelling and leather chairs

Read guest comments

Tucked into a pretty village is a dazzlingly refurbished 19th-century inn. There's an almost baronial feel to the Bear's Paw, thanks to the polished oak panelling, the huge fireplaces, the sweeping floors, the leather bucket chairs, the books, old prints and vintage photos. No stuffiness here, just cheery staff making sure you are well-watered and well-fed. Six cask ales, several from Weetwood, all local, take centre stage on the bar; there are also premium brand spirits, 12 malts and an excellent wine list. At well-spaced wooden tables are menus that blend classics with modern twists. Try game and root vegetable pie served with hand-cut chips and pickled red cabbage; vegetarian lasagne with wild mushrooms, spinach and toasted pine nuts; posh poached egg with truffle sabayon. Deli boards and fabulous sandwiches too.

"We stayed her for 2 nights. We had an executive room which was very comfortable. The bathroom was large with a good shower and lots of goodies. The food was excellent at dinner and breakfast. Also plenty of well trained staff who were friendly and helpful. Lovely village setting with lots of places to visit nearby."

"What a delightful English village,with a parish church and flowering fruit trees in the churchyard beside a rushing weir. The Bear's Paw is situated right across the road from this bucolic scene - so peaceful after a fast motorway drive from Heathrow! The room was well appointed, spotless, warm, with lovely bathroom supplies and an excellent rain shower. The bar/dining areas are beautifully reproduced to give the feel of a truly old inn. Food is excellent, beers are interesting, and the lively staff are attentive and professional. Highly recommended!"
