This is a lovely bar tucked away in Chester. The staff are very good and attentive. The selection of food is very tasty with plenty to choose from and I recommend it to friends and family. It has comfortable seating and a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

Seems a nice bar. Drinks reasonable price. Staff pleasant. Sat outside on a Saturday evening as weather was gorgeous. My only problem and this isn’t the pubs fault but people smoking and vaping. We were covered in smoke so had to move. It’s a shame...More
