The Bear Inn has long been a cornerstone and integral part of the Hodnet community and the Hodnet Estate wish to see it continue to play an important role in the village for many years to come.

In order to do so, the pub requires refurbishment and improvement. Greg and his team have decided that their time at the Bear has come to an end and the Estate is now taking the opportunity to complete the renovations to improve the pub for the future. The Bear is therefore closed from 1st October 2019.

We would like to thank Greg, Pia, and their team for their commitment and effort over the last 6 years in successfully maintaining the Bear as part of village life. 

We are sorry for the period of closure but we are truly excited and looking forward to welcoming you back to the new Bear in 2020. In the meantime if you have any comments as to what is most important to you about the Bear then please email them to
