The Pied Bull is very well situated near to the shopping centre of Chester, and to one of the gates that gives access to the beautiful walk around the old walls. Those looking for a hotel will be disappointed, because the Inn is still that...a place for travelers with a very busy bar (supplying its own home brewed beer). We... More

Classic olde worlde pub with accommodation friendly staff, clean, in the middle of the city and good beer. the breakfast was good. The pub is supposed to be haunted but the noise that ensured we did not get a good night's sleep was from the central heating knocking, even after turning it off and the plant that was constantly grinding...

After walking in on a cold Tuesday afternoon(9.12.14) having visited many times before myself and my friend were looking forward to a few tasty beers. The selection of real ales, lagers,ciders etc is fantastic and there is something for everyone's pallet. Unfortunately the pub today seemed to be ran by 3 rather inexperienced members of staff who had absolutely no... More

This is a fantastic place for a weekend. Really good value for money if you are staying. It is an historic building situated right in the centre of Chester giving you easy access to the cities shops, restaurants and bars. The meals and beers (many brewed on site) were extremely good and breakfast is tremendous value. There are no floors... More

We stayed one night in the Pied Bull, having always enjoyed the pub going back to student days. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and our evening meal was lovely - even though we saw three people sitting on a table near us return their meals to the kitchen and refuse replacements, which we thought was strange... However, we... More

Went for a drink tonight. Nice traditional pub feel throughout. The staff are lovely and helpful. They seemed happy to have a conversation with you, despite the fact that they were busy. My only suggestion would be to have other different kinds of beer available. Like German wheat beer. But it's just a thought. Nice place and will go again.

The staff were very friendly, the food was really nice and well presented, the beer which is brewed on the premises is really great, they have a good... More

Not a choice if you have mobility problems as the stairs are very steep but we had no problem climbing to the top of the building Would recommend for anyone wanting a break right... More

They said on booking.com that they have parking, but when we arrive we discovery that we did not have and we have to park in a super market and pay for it. So, consider that when comparing prices. The location is excellent, but everything else was reasonable.
