We had an evening meal here and the food was great and the service freindly. We also had a few drinks. We really liked the wood fire burning and the live entertainment was good. We are looking to go back next time and stay there.

We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel, the bar staff were friendly on arrival, and with conveniently located parking around the back meant we didn't need to worry about parking in the centre of the city. To walk to town take about 5 mins at most, and you’re close to many bars/coffee shops and retail outlets. The pub is amazingly well maintained... More

We arrived at 8:50 and they stopped food at 9. Nothing was too much trouble we were not made to feel rushed food was excellent value. Lovely surroundings just what you would expect lots of character wish we got there earlier.

A couple of members of my family stayed for 2 nights Sun-Tues to celebrate a 69th birthday. The Hotel was in a fantastic location close to all the shops and bars, and had a very welcoming atmosphere. The owners and Staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. They helped with parking and directions and the breakfast was fantastic. We... More

Stayed for 1 night on my own whilst on business in the area and whilst it was okay, it was not exactly what I was expecting for the price. However, Chester is expensive and this is a fairly lively pub in a historic building, so you must expect some compromises. Good: friendly helpful staff, brilliant location, friendly pub. Less good:... More

Oldy worldly place. However not to the standard we expected for the price paid. Rooms tired and need a substantial refurbishment. Good pub atmosphere but if you want an early night forget it the evening entertainment resonates through the whole building. Excellent staff working in tough conditions.

Booked in for four nights in this lovely period pub. We was in room 4 at the front of the pub, road side. You could hear the traffic but not enough to bother us. We felt the room needed a bin which we passed on to the staff to rectify. You pay extra for breakfast which was very tasty but... More

Just had a brilliant 60th Birthday Party in the Function room at Ye Olde Kings Head. The staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. From start to finish of the arrangements for the function Jack Deegan bent over backwards to assist in every aspect of the party. Some of the attendees stayed at the hotel at exceptionally... More

Great pub, always very busy. They do great deals on shots. Lager and cider is a little more expensive than the weather spoons directly opposite. Don't let that put you off though. Give it a try, you'll not leave disappointed
