I stayed at the Pied Bull on the 24th January with my partner to celebrate my brother-in-law's 60th birthday. I had reserved a double room in September 2014. I had researched the tarif online and thought that £75.00 was reasonable for a city centre pub. However upon arrival, despite having made the reservation, was given a small, tired room with... More

My partner and myself arrived at the Pied Bull on 22/1 after cutting short a horrendous few days in Bath and still wanting a night away. On arrival staff were friendly and we booked the king room (16). Sue from housekeeping very kindly cleaned our room early so we could check in before 2pm. The room was beautiful and so... More

My step daughter has just moved there and we wanted to find somewhere that was reasonably cheap but central. We read the reviews of all the main hotels and inns in the area and were going to try Oddfellows as it had been recommended but it was full. Pied Bull reviews were either good or bad with some unable to... More

I stayed with my husband on the Sunday between Christmas and new year as we were visiting 'upstairs at the grill'. We live locally to chester but stayed as a treat, check in was one hour later than booking confirmation showed which ruined our plans for the afternoon, we were then rushed to get ready on entering the room which...

Tour was done by Luke who was very helpful and we stayed together as a group afterwards so got to know some new people and had our beer served to the table and an explanation of... More

We happened across the pied bull after a music cancelation across the road in Alexander's. Having been in here before I am not sure the new decor of rustic whaney edge furniture quite suits the elegant old building but is tasteful non the less. I had a beef roast which was top class, everything done to perfection. My mother had... More

after shopping in the cheese shop across the road from this place. We thought we would go over and have lunch, as it looked an inviting place. We both had the home made chicken and mushroom pie which hit the spot. The place was very busy being only 2 days before xmax. Its a very old original coaching house, which... More
