Was at Chester for 6 days on business and staying in the Central travelodge, after working late each day it was an easy option to pop into this place for a cheap meal and a drink. The meals were what you paid for and couldn't complain too much. The bouncers were absolutely vile and spoke to us like dirt and... More

Cocktails, music, dancing. What could you ask for? There are TVs here if you are interested. Be careful of the trek to the toilets, not for the faint hearted, stairs!! But definitely go again

Myself and a couple of friends stopped in for a quick pint at lunchtime on a Thursday; no worries... The beer was very expensive and undrinkable so we asked for another pint each (we were one mouthful into it...) and the girl behind the bar was lovely but had to ask the "manager" at the end of the bar for...

Group of 14 people, lovely lunch out, nothing was a problem, made very welcome by staff, food was lovely, we ordered mainly fish and chips off the two for £9 offer! Puddings were good sizes for two £3.50! Food was a little slow coming out to us but we were a large group plus other people in pub too. We... More

Not a bad spot, cheap drinks deals and alright music..don't get what people expect exactly - it's more aimed at the younger crowd/students. If you're after classy cocktails and sophistiaction, hit the bars down Watergate St or Oddfellows. Otherwise this place isn't too bad for the one drink before hitting a club/another bar.

I have visited many places in Chester and have enjoyed them all but this has by far got to be the worst place I have ever been too! Instead of asking us to leave because the bar is soon to be closing, they decided to physically grip my husband and push him out! They told him he had enough to... More

Not a nice place - nothing positive to say at all. From the bad smell of the glasses and toilets to the over aggressive door staff, everything about this place is poor. No need to go here when there is so many other bars and pubs in Chester - avoid.
