We would have liked a better choice of reasonably priced European white wines.

Restaurant prices might seem expensive at first sight, but are in fact value for money.

Sunday lunch - generous helpings, we were actually asked how we wanted our beef (rare, medium, well done), never had that before so it was a pleasant surprise. Dessert was lovely.

Atmosphere was calm but not stuffy, the background music was just the right level. We had a lovely meal and staff were wonderful, attentive and polite without being intrusive.

Enjoyed our dinner.....every course! The servers were attentive and very good at looking after all our needs. Enjoyed the background music...thought that the only improvement could be a live piano player playing something like "play misty for me" or "time goes by". Setting was really very nice.

The rooms were clean and tidy all be it very hot! No air conditioning but I did get a fan. The food was either over cooked or cold. The staff were very helpful and polite.

We chose the Bear due to the fact we wanted to bring our dog, and had a very enjoyable stay.

We found the staff were very helpful, from the time we walked into the grounds. The outside bar people asked if we needed any help when we first arrived. I asked the garden bar guy for a wine menu, he did not have one but he made it a point to get me one within minutes, impressive. When we left the maintenance guys offered help wifh suitcase and opened door in latch for us. In fact all staff were great and customer care stood out from other hotels. Clean, nothing a trouble and not stuffy attitude like other cotswolds hotels. Will definitely return. You have it down to a tee, Thanks

We enjoyed our visit very much. We thought the food was on the expensive side (eg the price of fish and chips or a chilli-dog) and the ploughman's was heavy on carbs. However, the steaks and the stone bass were delicious and the service was first class.Drinks were too pricey.

Hotel room excellent, so was the food. Have marked service down slightly as it was a bit slow on Friday night (20minute wait between courses), and you struggled to seat everybody for breakfast on Sunday morning. That being said we had a great time, and would not hesitate to recommend, and come back ourselves. Overall very good. Not sure how you can solve breakfast issue as it was seating rather than staffing. Hope this helps.
