Went to Town house and found it over priced, respectable cocktail bar.... turned out to be an over priced pub, with Grizzly Adams for a manager that looked like he needed a good wash n shave a very dirty looking middle aged man that sold overpriced alcoholic poptails

40th birthday party in function room upstairs. Bottled drinks - very expensive. Disappointed by this, hence didn't stay for long!

What a chilled out bar! Beautiful surrounding, chilled out atmosphere and friendly owners. Great bar to visit in a great city. If you like your sweets then try the Cookie Dough Cocktail. Highly recommended.

I have been to this bar on several occasions and every time the drinks are spot on and the prices are very reasonable. You can tell that the bartenders are very experienced as I have asked for several things off the menu and they have served them to perfection. I personally think this is one of Chester's hidden gems,definitely check... More
