“Great Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Visited Chester for one night with plans to go to several places but couldnt bring ourselves to leave! Food was excellent great burgers & hot dogs! Staff very friendly & helpful. My boyfriend enjoyed the real ale very much. The atmosphere on a Saturday night was fantastic with a good mix of music. We will be back :-)

“Custom House Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

A great Pub with lots of old oak beams, good food and drink. The staff were warm and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for the money. We'll be going back again.

“Don't bother, save your money.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

We went here for breakfast, not good. It took ages to come considering we were the only people in there, it looked better than it was. The bacon was like an overlooked flip flop, the sausages had been deep fat fried and the toast was cold, as for the chef, I wouldn't advise they ever go on safari as he couldn't even poach an egg!! I would expect this in a greasy spoon but not a pub that is trying to be upmarket. Big fail.

“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.
