Our aim is to offer an unbeatable combination of amazing home-made fresh food, cracking hand-pulled cask ales, wine that compliments the dishes perfectly and exceptional, friendly service.
As well as being a traditional pub boasting 4 well-chosen cask ales, we serve exceptional food with a seasonal menu that sources all its produce locally and everything is home-made.
The building is renowned for its many enchanting secrets such as the former Bear Pit located under Wilfred's retreat in the pub, and has many secret passageways leading to the village and Hodnet Hall.
Hodnet is a village rich in history and nestles serenely into the shropshire valleys and the surrounding countryside reflects this magnificently. The Bear provides an ideal homely base to explore these idyllic settings.
We do allow our 'four-legged friends' outside in the garden of the pub and in one designated room inside the pub. We know from personal experience that if you're out having a walk, you wouldn't be forgiven for leaving them at home.
We do hope you love the place as much as we do, and hope you will come and visit us very soon.
Many Thanks Greg and the Bear team
