WELCOME TO The Bear's Head IN Brereton


A country pub near you oozing rural charm and rustic character.

Built in 1625 and originally known as The Boars Head, The Bear’s Head has been serving the community of Brereton for almost four hundred years. It was an extremely popular posting house on the London to Liverpool turnpike, becoming so busy, that in the 18th Century a new wing was built, and a range of stables constructed on the opposite side of the road.

Our picturesque surroundings and large beer garden provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, as well as the wide-selection of carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines that grace our bar.

Whether you’re planning dinner with friends, Sunday lunch with family or simply popping in for a well-earned pint after walking your four-legged friend, book your table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.



There’s always a great reason to visit The Bear's Head.

At The Bear's Head we’re proud to cater for any and all needs, which is why offer a range of menus to suit all dietary requirements, including vegetarian menu options, such as our Vegan menu, which is available 6 days a week.

Our cosy and welcoming country interiors ooze rural charm accentuated by a fireplace often lit in the colder months and during the evenings.

If a pint of hand pulled ale is what you’re craving, then we’re stocked with a great range of beers from Doom Bar to more local cask ales like Old Thumper and Razor Back from Ringwood Brewery. And, as an added bonus CAMRA members get 20p off their perfectly poured pint… making it taste all the better!

Black and white timbered, and ivy-clad, our ancient inn presents a pleasing prospect to villagers in Brereton. Away from the main road and surrounded by fields, this is a former posting house.

It’s easier than you might think to spend a day in and around Brereton! From Jodrell Bank to Delamere Forest, there truly is something for everyone to discover and fall in love with.

And, what’s even better is that, at the Bears Head, we have an Innkeeper's Lodge right next door! It’s perfect for turning an afternoon visit into an enjoyable weekend retreat.

When the sun comes out (which isn’t as often as we’d like), you’ll want somewhere picturesque to sit down and relax, which is why our large beer garden is the perfect spot for whiling away an afternoon.



There’s more to The Bear's Head than just great food and drink.

Did you know that if you’re a CAMRA member you can enjoy 20p off any pint of cask ale?

The Bear's Head is a dog friendly pub in Brereton.

We welcome four legged friends and have water and treats available
to ensure they're as comfortable as you are during your visit!

Dogs are allowed in the bar area of our pub, as this is the most friendly environment
for you and your four-legged friends to feel relaxed, safe, and happy at all times during your visit.



If you fancy seeing some wildlife, then Chester Zoo is the destination for you and your family. It’s the perfect place to take the little ones on a memorable day out.

We’d recommend embracing nature by heading over to Cheshire Oaks, Brereton Heath or Tatton Park, where you can lose yourself in the beautiful surroundings – perhaps before making a visit to The Bears Head for a pint or a glass of wine (it’d be rude not to).
