“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

We are here for one day from Chester to see Minster. Not paying £10, so found this amazing quirky place.Great food, atmosphere n staff. The knowledge of the drinks sold from Will is amazing. Nothing this guy does not know. Ps Chester does not charge to see our magnificent Cathedral.

“Great atmosphere”

Good pub food, and a great choice of beers. The off-licence downstairs focusses on beers from around the world. A great selection

“Quirky pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is a really quirky pub that you have to know is there - upstairs from what you first think is a shop. Decor is animal heads on the wall and other unusual items! Good selection of drinks. We didn't eat here but it is amazing what comes out of the tiny kitchen.
