The Bear's Head in Brereton is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for enjoying the local area.

If you're looking for hotels in Cheshire, you'll find few places to stay with this much history behind them. Built in 1625, this former coaching inn has been part of life in Holmes Chapel and Brereton for almost 400 years. And with so many people visiting Cheshire every year, that shows no sign of changing.

Thanks to convenient motorway and rail connections, the lodge makes for a welcome change of scenery while on business stays. You'll find a great pub here, too. So after a hard day's sightseeing or indeed business, it couldn't be easier to tuck into some hearty, seasonal food, relax with a glass of what you fancy and enjoy a restful nights sleep in one of our 25 bedrooms.

A short drive from Sandbach and Crewe, Holmes Chapel is a popular spot for tourists. You can drop by 14th century Adlington Hall, admire the art at Capesthorne Hall, pet the animals at Wheelock Hall Farm and explore the winding paths of Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve. Or you can bring things bang up to date and see the giant telescope at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.
