Local Cheshire Inn, The Bear’s Paw, recognised amongst the best in England


The Bear’s Paw has been named as a finalist in the Guest Accommodation of the Year category of the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2013.

Following The Bear’s Paw success at The Marketing Cheshire Annual Awards last November where they beat off stiff competition from all over Cheshire and Warrington to win Guest Accommodation of the Year, they have now been recognised as one of the top inns in the country by earning an esteemed place as a finalist in the VisitEngland Awards.

The Bear’s Paw now goes forward to the glittering Awards Ceremony which is being held on 20 May 2013 at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford, Manchester.

The Bear’s Paw will have to wait until then to find out which award they will receive.  All finalists are guaranteed to receive either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended Award.

Commenting on the finalists James Berresford, VisitEngland’s Chief Executive said “I would like to congratulate all those nominated as VisitEngland Awards for Excellence finalists this year.  We received 320 applications and the quality of submissions was higher than ever.  It is therefore no small achievement for The Bear’s Paw to become a finalist and justifiably take credit and pride in earning a coveted place in the top five in their category in England.  I wish everyone all the best for the final in May”.
