I was hoping I might catch the Congleton Leisure Centre open, as they apparently serve a few decent ales. But sadly it is no longer open at weekends. But the brewery tap for Beartown is not to far away. Only Beartown beers are stocked on the handpulls - Black Bear, Bearly Literate, Full Bodied Ruby Bear, Bear Ass, Bearskinful & Kodiak Gold was the choice. No real cider is served. There are 3 small rooms, making this a real traditional boozer. Music is played. But conversation seems to be the order of the day. Well worth a visit if in town.

I'd heard, from sources I trust, that this pub had taken a turn for the worse, which upset me, as it is a great favourite of mine. i was therefore very relieved to find that nothing much seemed to have changed since i was last there; same quietly convivial atmosphere, same fine choice of well-kept beers. I enjoyed my first experience of the excellent Polar Eclipse stout. The only negative was that they seemed to be burning scented candles; something anyway was producing a 'fragrance' that irritated my nostrils and didn't enhance the flavour of the beer.
But I'm not going to write the place off quite yet!

Excellent little pub and home to one of my fave breweries in the country, the ale was superb,the pub full of interesting bear related curios and the service very friendly and welcoming. They also do take out's of their ales in bottles, 8/10

Friendly little pub, a slight walk from the town centre but well worth the effort to get there. A main bar area with two rooms either side of it and another one up some stairs, which caters for sports lovers or so it seemed to me.

A small range of Belgian beers were on display and very reasonably priced i might add, naturally the full range of Beartown beers were also available. All beers sampled were good/excellent, especially the Black Bear ale which was outstanding. The interior is rather spartan in appearence, although this doesn't detract from the overall atmosphere which is warm and welcoming and Jill the landlady is a genial hostess.

We need more pubs like this, go and enjoy.

I gather there have been some changes in management since I last reviewed this pub over 4 years ago - but to the occasional visitor like me it seems unchanged, and unchanged in its excellence. This is a model which many less successful pubs could do well to copy: great beer, great atmosphere, no rubbish. Absolutely first rate.
