The Bear's Head, a country pub in Sandbach

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you. 

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.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.


Charming country pubs in lovely locations

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.

Whether you’re out walking your dog or just exploring the local area, there’s always plenty to do around The Bear's Head.
