Built in the early 1600s, The Bears Head offers quintessentially British fare and old pub favourites from an accomplished and diverse menu. Teeming with ivy, a sprawling flagstone courtyard sits alongside the black and white timber-clad exterior, while inside, chunky wooden furnishing and crackling open fires punctuate the dining area.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Bears Head menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Bears Head ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Bears Head in Cheshire is just a 4-minute drive away from the popular Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve, which boasts a 40-hectare park, lake and woodland.

    Have dined here many times , excellent all round highly recommended

    Absolutely fantastic, I was really pleased to see that I could book a table so easily at my favourite pub restaurant for a really delicious meal - my only problem was that the starters and mains are so yummy & filling that I didnt have room for dessert.
    The Bears Head is a gorgeous old coaching inn thats been expanded & still has all the original old beams clearly visible, adding to its old world charm - its cosy, private & luxuriously romantic without being overly expensive (we paid just over £60 for 2 starters, 2 mains & 4 drinks), everything is freshly sourced and cooked to perfection and the staff are both very friendly and very professional. I'll definitely be booking again using bookatable to guarantee I can get a table next time I go & strongly recommend that anyone who hasnt been gives it a try - you wont be disappointed.

    I loved the Moroccan Lamb curry,

  • ((((* by from Brereton

    6 of us dined and it was an enjoyable evening. The food was tasty and as you would expect. The only problem was that one of the starters did not arrive and I had to ask at the bar after several minutes to find out where it was. The second issue was that one of our guests is on a gluten free diet and from the special dietary menu the 2 choices she made were not available. She was able to eat something but it really shouldn't be on an already restricted menu if its not available.

    We love to dine here each week but my Sunday lunch - roast lamb was very disappointing I would of expected more lamb even if it was a child's meal .... Don't think we'll be going anymore.... What a disappoint for regulars!
