I booked the premier suite for our silver wedding anniversary, what we found on arrival was a warm welcome from the staff. The suite was quirky, creaky floor boards, clean and decorated as you would imagine a room to be in the oldest pub in Chester. Location was ideal for walking to the bars and restaurants in the evening hence... More

Stayed in room #7 which was larger than most of our parties rooms. The room was extremely dated in its decor and featured twin beds of low quality steel tube design. If the theme was supposed to be in keeping with the age of the hotel/pub, the beds were out of place. Sleep was almost impossible due to external noise... More

The staff were friendly, especially Selle, the breakfast was good, but bedroom (no4) was a let down, due to noise from below/outside (?), despite it being at the back Pub itself was not the problem. We changed rooms late on which was better, although a twin. We appreciate it is an old building but needs a little more tlc to... More

We stayed there with some friends for 1 night to celebrate a 40th birthday. Our friends had booked 2 rooms, 1 double and 1 deluxe with 4 poster. The room with the 4 poster was for them and the double for us. On arrival we had to pay in advance at a cost of £100 per night including breakfast. Immediately... More

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay at The Pied Bull. We do operate three different price scales for premier suite, 4 poster & double/twin. The 4 poster room would normally sell for a additional £20 to that of a standard double/twin room. On this particular night there was a deal were the 4 poster... More

Bit disappointed not given a tour of the micro brewery by the Brewer himself. Ricketty stairs and floors, but room comfortable but basic. What a... More

Had a 2 night stay in August 2014. Very quaint and cosy! The location is great as it is only minutes walk to the attractions bars and restaurants in Chester . We had room 12 which was certainly big enough and was very clean but basic. The floor was on a bit of a slant but was all part of... More

We were singing at the cathedral and chose this place to stay as it was within easy walking distance. The staff are very helpful and beer is brewed in the cellar. Our room was on the first floor and right at the end so we did not hear a lot of noise. It was small for two but we weren't... More
