“Lovely service, homely proper pub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

We came to Chester for a holiday and stumbled upon this pub, entered with no great expectations and left impressed! My wife and i had curry, on offer with a drink for £6.45, tasty pub food, our young children shared a portion of decent 'pub' chips, but their children's menu was certainly suited to all tastes and great value. Noticed lot's of other offers including 50% off wine on certain days. Really enjoyed food, great service, friendly staff. Would definately return.

“Feal in Chester”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

This was our first meal in Chester having driven down from Aberdeenshire, an 8 hour drive (not including comfort breaks). What a disappointment. Food average, drinks expensive, service poor. Had we not booked for 3 nights, we may well have decided not to stay on in Chester. However, subsequent meals were a lot better (would not be hard) and we enjoyed our stay in this lovely city.
