Will definitely visit again,garden at rear off the Pied Bull is fantastic.even in the middle of winter you can sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere under the heated patio area. Well done Pied Bull staff.

We really enjoyed it. We stopped by for a large family lunch on Saturday afternoon and all went well. We had preordered and we're served correctly and on time. Food was plentiful and lovely to eat. The surf and turf platter (pictured) is a bargain for £15. Plenty for two to share. If we're we're to be picky the Ice...

The Pied Bull is perfectly situated within Chester city wall in heart of town. Shops all around, cathedral 200 yards etc. Found the Inn was decorated with seasonal decorations, staff friendly and pub/dining area very traditional and cosy. The room was small but clean and modern, with tea/coffee making facilities. Had a set of keys with 24 hour access. Couldn't...

I have to say I felt like we got the short straw with our room at the Pied Bull. Room 1 on the first floor, right at the top of the stairs above the bar. Upon entering the room all you could hear was the drone of voices and music below...no chance of a quick half hour nap after a...

Looks lovely on the website and when walking through the main door you feel like you have stepped back in time to the old coaching inn that it was. Reception was tucked away at the rear of the property so you have to make your way, luggage and all through the pub and patrons in order to check in then...

Good food, good beer and great room. Friendly staff and handy for all that Chester has to offer. We stayed in a cottage room. Plenty of space for the two of us, bathroom was spotless and we could access our room from the door on the side street. We will be staying again.

Lovely hotel, clean and food was good. My only complaint was that the room was cold with no heating on when we went back. The staff were also helpful and courteous. The hotel is just out of the centre of town, but only a 5 minute walk to shops and pubs

We enjoyed Sunday lunch on our arrival and room was very clean and welcoming We were woken early morning with street noise, but we did have window open? We came down for breakfast at 9 am and while we were filling a glass of orange juice we're passed the the breakfast menu. While we were still at the self service...

Thank you for your review. Breakfast does finish at 9am mon-fri which is the only reason i can suggest that you was asked if you would like a cooked breakfast immediately (as the kitchen does close down at this time to prepare for the day a head) All items on the cooked breakfast are fully cooked by the chef on...

Just returned from a 3 night break at the Pied Bull. Great welcome. Lovely beer (brewed on the premises!) and wine. Fantastic breakfast. We had a new room behind the pub. Very very clean, great shower. Downside to the room, very small, very warm without the ability to adjust the temperature. More coat hooks would be helpful too. All in...
