Description: The Bear & Billet is a terrific 3 storie pub located inside the walled city of Chester which was owned by the Earl of Shrewsbury & built in 1664. The Bear & Billet offers a great friendly place to enjoy food and drink. We have a wide selection of cask ales and well as draught and bottled beers from around the world. We have a full homecoo0ked food menu available everyday day with Sunday lunch available every Sunday from 12pm-7pm. Not only that we have function rooms available for hire as well as live sport shown throughout the year with 5 flat screen T. V's available on 3 floors.

Lovely atmosphere, service with a genuine smile. Good selection of ales and fantastic food, great quality, great taste, good presentation and at a very good price. Portions are quite large. I found out there was certainly no need for side orders. Highly recommend to anyone.

Found this quaint pub on Tripadviser and it was spot-on. Good real ales and a "paddle" option where you could try 3 of them in ⅓ pint pots for the price of a pint. Fabulous building and we even had a choice of a quiz in the bar downstairs or a Folk Club upstairs. The wild rover in me chose .....

We stayed in Chester for three nights and called into this pub twice. Their food is quality and tasty and well recommended. There is plenty going on each night of the week. The building is old and beautiful.
