First time dining here and will definitely try it again. Great ambience, friendly efficient staff, good choice of beers and reasonable prices too. My only disappointment was no salads on the menu which is usually what I would order but the burger was good. My husband was VERY impressed with the chips.

After busy exploring the city of Chester it was nice to find a welcoming pub to have dinner. It gets busy so you need to book if you can. The food was good and reasonably priced and they had specials nights the 2 nights we were there. A great local pub.

I guess it pretty much depends on what time you come here. We came in at 7 o'clock and although the bar was pleasant enough the whole ambience of the place was that of restaurant as opposed to pub, and the focus of the staff was likewise. You almost feel like a nuisance if you just want a pint. Fortunately... More

There was an error where they put another tables bill on to ours as well , which added an extra £50 to our bill! Luckily WE spotted this. The place was... More

Good friendly pub. Lots of drinks choice. Did not eat, only visiting as meeting a friend for a catch up. Ideal venue to meet friends.

We were recommended this place by work colleagues whilst on business in Chester, from the moment we arrived the staff were really friendly and attentive. The fish and chips were spot on and even better with the 40% off weds deal. Desserts were delicious although the ice cream was served in the worlds smallest serving bowl 😂😂. Great value for... More

Very good service and food at this pub. It has a good varied menu and the quality of the food was excellent. The staff are friendly and attentive, without being in your face.

Went on a Sunday for lunch. Waiting staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive; couldn't have helped us more. Food was great. Very tasty. Drank some of the great gin's they had available there too, so much so the manager gave us all a fantastic gin glass on the house. Really wonderful day out and would highly recommend.
