The rooms were beautiful and immaculate, unfortunately that is the only positive. We booked the penthouse suite the staircase was steep and even right at the top we were still disturbed by the noise from the bar. The food was awful, although it looked nice it was so greasy and full of oil that it was impossible to eat. Such...

Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear this about your dining experience. I will be looking in to this matter and hope to resolve the situation. The stair case is original to the building and it is unfortunate that we dont have a lift here. When booking rooms we do our very best to allocate rooms...

Thank you for your lovely review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your time spent with us here at the Pied Bull.

We stayed for one night and were more than happy. The room was at the rear of the hotel. It's a new build connected via the beer garden. The pub is wonderful with an excellent choice of real ales. The room itself was perfect. Maybe worth the price just for the power shower alone. The staff were lovely, friendly and...

On entering the pub we were pleasantly surprised with its olde worldy character. We ordered food choosing pie of the day, as they have a selection. When the food arrived the pie was the size of a small pork pie, smaller than i have ever had from any fish & chip shop or pub. I wasn't expecting the pie to...

Thank you for your review. Our pie of the day is a very popular choice from our menu and one that i must say only ever receives praise from customers. Im sorry that you felt this way.

On arrival the first thing that i noticed was the decorations throughout the pub, they were wonderful. We were greeted with a friendly smile. Our room was top floor so quite a few stairs to climb but the rooms were comfy, decorated well and clean. The bathroom was large with a large bath and shower. We were supplied with extra...

We visited this hotel for New Year twelve months ago and decided to return again. As five new suites had been opened on the back, we opted to stay in one of these, at £159. We were a little disappointed at the size of the room. Quite simply put, you couldn't swing a cat in it! On the plus side,...

Had a lovely evening in this Inn. Staff were very friendly and the meals we had were excellent. It was decorated for Christmas and we really had the festive feeling here. Would definitely go there again and I would recommend anyone in Chester to pay it a visit. Cannot review the rooms as we only had a meal.
