Warmingham Bear’s Paw/ The Bhurtpore
There was a very good turn-out at the Warmingham Bear’s Paw on Saturday 3rd December for the CAMRA South Cheshire Branch to celebrate Christmas. A variety of taxis from Crewe Winsford and Church Minshull were organised to bring people together in this village pub/restaurant just north of Crewe. It is one of four attractive and upmarket pubs run by the Nelson Hotel group, with others located at the Fishpool at Delamere, the Grosvenor in Chester and the Pheasant at Higher Burwardsley. With 6 rotating real ales we were more than satisfied. My personal favourite being the Weetwood Eastgate, an Amber 4.2% ale made with whole leaf Cascade Hops. Lovely! The Christmas fare was just as good as expected, with generous slabs of turkey served nice and hot, more quickly than I might have expected on a busy night. Photos were later taken of the entire group, with everyone looking replete and contented! This CAMRA Christmas party seems to get bigger each year as this successful and expanding branch goes from strength to strength.
