Stayed at the Bears Head for a night on the way back down South from Scotland. A stunning building that is full of character. Check in was handled efficiently and a nice touch was being shown to our room. The room was spacious, nicely decorated, well appointed and spotlessly clean. We ate in the bar later and both the service... More

We visited on Sunday 3rd August with our two children as a final treat following a weekend away. The food is expensive but we don't mind paying over the odds for good food, unfortunately it wasn't. My main gripe is the portion size. My 8 year old son ordered the children's pasta and he received 9 pieces of pasta, no... More

We stayed one night mid week and booked into the family room on the ground floor. Plenty of parking spaces when we arrived in the evening. Not a great reception and we were standing at the bar waiting to check in. The staff seemed to be thin on the ground and not that friendly. The room was ok, very average... More

Nice Hotel, it's an old Coaching Inn, Friendly helpful staff, they advised us to book a table for dinner. Dinner was very good, and the rooms were spotless with a very comfortable bed. Good shower with plenty of clean towels.

Busier than it should be in the restaurant due to its lovely olde world timbers. Food not that good but the setting draws people in. Much better within a short radius to eat that doesnt use frozen veg etc. More cook chill than fresh here which is very poor for the cheshire location.

Lovely oldie-worldie picutres on the website made it very appealing, so was so disappointed with our stay. The room was shabby and tired, window catches broken, noisy, black mouldy bathroom. Booked for 3 in room - no body put third bedding & towels in room. Restaurant packed -no body tells you that you need to book a table in addition... More

We had not stayed at an Innkeepers Lodge before but had booked online an overnight stay at the Bears Head on our way up to Scotland.

We had an overnight stay at this Innkeepers Lodge, not quite sure what to expect for the very reasonable price. What we found was a vintage inn serving great food, lovely welcoming staff and a room which was bigger than more expensive hotels. All the facilities were there and we were relieved at the good standard of cleanliness and fixtures... More

Pretty much everything about the Bear's Head is really rather good. All the folks who work there were pleasant, with the cleaning staff particularly worthy of mention in this regard. And, more importantly, I've paid double to stay in utter hell-holes I wouldn't put my mother-in-law in. But, hey, this is Tripadvisor. We're here to also point out the teeny-weeny... More
