We popped in here for a quick drink whilst mooching round the Christmas market. Decent beer and the atmosphere was friendly enough, its not really my kind of pub with the TVs etc but seemed very popular with locals and visitors, staff are friendly which makes all the difference!

The pub is really nice with a spotlessly clean interior,nice decor and furnishings and a superb... More

Popped into this pub midday on a really hot afternoon. Great seating area outside where you can sit and watch the world go by. Staff were spot on including the little terrier who checks you out on arrival. I have never seen any pub not improved by the odd mutt in it so this was all good. Decent range of... More

Very friendly atmosphere, best cappuccino in Chester, usually made by Kelly, the lovely bubberly barmaid. Dog friendly, our pooch is usually provided with a bowl of water.

Advertises that they show all Rugby matches, but do not make you feel welcome or comfortable doing so. The pub has a lovely exterior and interior and has been well known and a favourite for watching sports. It used to be especially good for watching Rugby Union matches as they used to put the rugby on upstairs and have all... More
