A nice clean pub, the food was very expensive and the portions small for the money, would never eat there again, Had fish pie it would have been to small for a child. My partner had ciabatta sandwich the bread was only partly cooked I would say it was warmed in the microwave.

I would like to say thank you for your review to begin. Being situated in the very heart of Chester and being home cooked food from local produce i would consider our prices competitive and very reasonable for the top quality food that we provide. The size portions that we serve on all items of the menu are considered to...

Dropped by for a light lunch and pint whilst walking the city walls. Historic, oak beamed pub with cosy interior. Some ale is house brewed; very good too. Food was enjoyable and good value and came with good, friendly service.

Best beer in Chester. Loving the new beer garden atm. Love it when you walk in and can smell the brewing going on downstairs at their onsite brewery. Well worth a visit. Revamped menu too but. I have yet to try.

We stayed in room 17 which was a 'cottage' down the side of the Inn. Great welcome, shown to our room and made aware of the facilities available to us. Pristine clean, super hot shower, comfortable bed. Perfect location for central Chester, the wall walk, shops other bars and restaurants etc. Would we stay again - yes. Not so good,...

My friend booked a Brewery Tour for my husband and I, plus her and her husband. It was really interesting and our guide, John was very knowledgeable. Interesting to see how a micro brewery works and how the beer gets from start to finish. After the tour we went back into the pub and were each given 3 different beers...

Being the only micro brewery within the city walls of Chester we do take great pride in our real ales. Brewery tours give us the opportunity to show people where the magic happens and how we create such wonderful beers.

Fascinating building with lots of features i.e. oak beams, spacious neat and tidy bar selling three home brewed ales when I visited last Saturday before making my way to watch Dover play football at the Deva. This pub has rooms to make a stay of it in Chester and comes highly recommended by me.

We have been using the Pied Bull for some time for evening drinks.
