We visit this pub often and it has certainly become a lot busier with the new owners and chefs. A great place to dine or just visit the pub and play cards AND they accept dogs too (and well behaved boyfriends!) . Thoroughly recommend.

Had a gorgeous meal for my Mother in laws birthday. Kids menu is great too (more than just nuggets and chips 🙈), choice of salmon, fish, steak, chicken and more. Between us we had steak which was cooked to perfection and Lamb Shank that melted in your mouth and the puddings...Mmmmmmm. Nice and cosy feel although its a big place... More

Visited for the first time today and thouroughly enjoyed. Lovely relaxed place with friendly efficient service. Food varied and delicious. I enjoyed prawn and lobster cocktail for starter and duck salad for mains which was all beautifully fresh and nicely presented. One small thing not sure the triple cooked chips were triple cooked but still nice. Family of four ate... More

Had a really good meal here with my friends for her birthday. The food was so good, tasty and well presented! I had the lamb shank which was divine. The staff seemed pleasant, in particular the lady who served us, Phoebe, was really nice and smiley and was really efficient with everything we wanted. All in all a great pub... More

Another lovely evening spent at The Bears Head. A last minute booking that was accommodated by the very helpful staff, the waiting on staff were extremely attentive even though it was clearly busy. My fussy youngster was bowled over by the helpful waitress (who turned out to be the licensee) whom managed to make the evening a special one by... More

For Mother's Day the Bears Head put on a special menu for 3 courses for about £20 a head, they do these offers quite frequently throughout the year for special events and I have to say they smash it each time. I also went for the Christmas Meal and both have been spectacular, there is always a great range of... More
