A wonderful place to stay right in the heart of Chester within the city walls with parking included. The two bedrooms (one double, one twin) are tastefully furnished with all your needs catered for. Breakfast is the best we have ever tasted with everything you would want to set you up for the day.

Have eaten here many times on visits to Chester and have never been disappointed. Great uncomplicated food, good sized portions and have to say great beer too. The oatcakes are a speciality and always good. Be aware it's not a modern pub and some of the house rules are a bit unusual but add to the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere of... More

This pub is located under the city walls in a terraced street. It really is a trip back in time - "only the prices are 2015". There is a choice of well kept real ales. We last called in for Sunday lunch - my wife had the turkey lunch and I had the cottage pie - both excellent and with... More

We stayed at this pub, as we have been doing for several years now, and have never had a bad experience. So glad that hen nights, stag nights and children are banned. Nice to see a pub that is taking a stand against the pc brigade. If you want piped music, soul less decor and a corporate identity, this is... More

Called in for lunch prior to the annual visit to Chester races and yet again good food with excellent service. Have been coming for years and never dissapoints. Thank you to the friendly bar maid who gave us an enthusiastic tour of the pubs memorabilia. Did not try the guest beer called 'I did not know it tastes like piss... More

Spent a couple of nights in the Albion on a recent visit to Chester and really enjoyed both the feel of the pub and the landlords sense of humour ! Walls are covered in great memorabilia that honour the memories of people long gone and make for interesting reading. Good home cooked food and will certainly return

Interesting pub, lots of war based memorabilia. As others have said the Landlord has a sense of humour. Basic English food menu shepherds pie etc. We just met for a drink a couple of reasonable ales on and Carling.

Located just off the wall in the centre of Chester, we spotted this pub when on a walk. Intrigued by the signs, we popped in for a quick drink. This is obviously a popular local-style pub, ideal for both the local residents and for visitors. Quirky humour is obvious throughout, along with a wonderful collection of memorabilia from through the... More

Wonderful welcome from a young lady with a huge smile. Real fire giving a most cosy atmosphere. Delicious luncheon - locally sourced ingredients, very well cooked. Generous portions. Super flavours. Incredible atmosphere, World War 1 memorabilia adorning the walls A "MUST" Historical Location.

We saw this when walking the wall. Fascinating historical setting with the streets of terraced houses near by. So different and such a throw back inside to what pubs used to be like. Staff very friendly to us, Great real ale and food was so different and excellent for lunch time. really enjoyed our session there. The only irony coming... More
