Restaurant description

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

    Hunters chicken was fabulous. We loved the fish and chips, risotto and the children loved their pizzas. Brownies and ice cream ruled okay!

    I went with my dad and one of my sisters to have a nice Sunday lunch. We were not disappointed. The service was slow which was the only downside but it was very busy. The Sunday roast was lovely and I had Eton Mess for desert which is my favourite. We all enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. I think they need more staff when its that busy thats all.

    Great atmosphere with open fires. The food was disappointing. The flavours didn't complement the dishes. I had scallops with black pudding. The pea and mint puree was too strong. The wholefood salad was too sweet too much honey. Just glad I got 20% discount via aa.
