We were delighted - food deals were probably the best in Chester at £9 for two meals and two cocktails for £4.75! The milkshakes are to die for! (Not literally). The staff were... More

Busy place, lots of people, lots of beer glasses. Noisy pub fun atmosphere. If you are pub person, and like all of the above that’s the perfect place. Close to St Johns cathedral and Roman amphitheater- perfect for quick beer on summer day

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
