Meet The Bear Team

Please find listed below the key members of the Bear at Hodnet team.

Gregory Williams- Lord of the land variety

Our resident Landlord/ Chef Greg, loves his food, his wine and his beer- So a big believer in trying it before it goes on the menu, especially the local beers, those he likes to do regular "quality control checks" on...

Chris Barnes- The Braun
The Jack of all trades

The Jack of all trades; the painter, the business entrepreneur, the builder, the bartender, the shelf 'putter-upper'. Chris is our rock, who has an answer to every thing, not always the right answer but an answer none the less...

Pia Williams

Swedish landlady, so she tends to always double check spellings on names, sometimes triple checks, just to be on the safe side...


The one that looks after us all and keeps us in-check. Sharon was here before all of us so is a fountain of all knowledge for The Bear, particularly useful in discovering the use of specific keys.

Jack & Betsy
'House Bear's

Jack & Betsy - our House Bear's. Very ferocious and constantly on guard.
