Four of us ate here for lunch. Air conditioned, very pleasant surroundings. Food was beautiful , homemade chips , fresh salads and great choice menu. Service was to notch and the staff attentive. Would visit again.

We paid a return visit to what was one of our favourite hotels on the return leg of a touring holiday. Things did not go well from the moment we checked in and our views on the standard of this hotel changed dramatically. At the time of our visit the town was in the middle of a heatwave, so we...

Myself & my husband spent I night at the pied bull and wish we could have stayed longer. If you want a generic room with all mod cons stay in a brand hotel. The pied bull is charming and quirky, the staff are incredibly friendly and the hotel is situated in a perfect position, close to all chester has to... More

This is an Old Coaching Inn offering a fine range of ales near to Chester 's main shopping areas and local attractions such as the Cathedral and City Walls. We were given room 4 which can only be described as a small unpleasant room at the rear of the building. The bathroom had not been cleaned (or even toilet flushed)... More

Booked 2 rooms direct with staff, spoke to very friendly chap called Luke who said after taking the booking if he could help any further just to let him know. We could only stay 1 night with our friends who were over from Australia which was very disappointing as we were then on our way to Wrexham. On arrival staff... More

I first visited Chester about 10 years ago on business & was so impressed that I promised to bring my wife to see it - and here we are. Chose The Pied Bull as it looked to be close to all the historic buildings & so it was. Lots of ancient black & white buildings just a short stroll away... More

We stayed one night in Room 2. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable but the decor was rather dated and the furniture was a strange mix; a modern metal frame bed,honey pine wardrobe, dressing table and bedside tables,'modern' metal artwork on wall and modern lighting. The bathroom was clean but very 'tired'. Breakfast was delicious. We... More

Very comfortable room. We had room 3 with the four poster bed. Breakfast very basic. Not a lot of choice. No fruit or yogurts available. Micro Brewery very interesting. Just had to ask to have a look at it. Had dinner two nights that we were here. The food was excellent.
