Only stayed one night. The food was good Sunday roast very large. Staff fantastic and helpful. The room had been renovated and was excellent in keeping with the age of the building. Thankfully we did not see the ghost. Highly recommend.

We stayed for one night in the Pied Bull which have visited on many occasions before as it has probably the best real ale Camra bar in town. The place dates back to 1590 I believe so be prepared for low beams, sloping floors, uneven stairs with the whole place brimming with character. The rooms have just been refurbished to... More

Wasn't sure what to expect as their prices were so good, the website looked promising and I wasn't dissapointed. The pub was full of character, stunning from the outside and lovely on the inside too. We stayed in one of the twins, rooms 6, and it had been decorated to a high standard, very boutique hotel. Loved the shimmering glitter... More

I bought the Pied Bull brewery tour as a Christmas present for my boyfriend, although we didn't actually get around to doing it until the end of May. It was really easy to book over the phone and the staff were friendly and helpful. It turned out that the day we booked for (30th may 2015) was both chester race... More
