Nice place to pop into on our mini bar crawl. Comfy couches to relax on & good beers on offer. Food is available although we didn't eat here. Few bars along this road to try without having to walk too far.

Visited the pub whilst out on leaving party with some work colleagues. All I can say is what a gem of a pub. The selection of beers are great and the knowledge of the bar man helped you decide which ale matched you preferred taste. Will definitely return next time were in Chester

Popped in for a quick drink whilst staying at the premier inn opposite. There was a good range of real ales and a very relaxed atmosphere with rustic wooden benches.
