Was staying in chester for the Sealed Knot's display on the 10th-11th August, went to some pub near tesco as was told it was a real ale pub, that they were not. Got given a list of 6 better pubs to try out by one of the customers.

The Sitting bull bitter uses american and new zealand hops, made in the on site micro brewery, an intense hoppy flavour and have not tasted as good for a long time.

Did not try the food, but looked appetising :)
Friendly staff and beer cheaper than I usually pay all helps

Was camping at the racecourse, so did not use the rooms :)

spent a weekend in Chester to see the zoo and have a break.
Got a late deal on the large front room here which was supposed to be haunted, found the room very dark, nothing was level and full of very old furniture and creaking floorboards.
Needless to say it was perfect.
So much history in the building it was an amazing place to stay.
had breakfast and evening meal there and had a good time in the pub.
Will come back when were in Chester.

Centrally situated Inn in Chester. easy walk to all the sights especially the Cathedral. Hotel quite old world with lots of wood, narrow corridors and sloping floors with a cosy quirky feel to it. Rooms quite basic but met our needs. Good cooked breakfast included. We found easy parking near by as Inn only has 2 car spaces. The pub has its own brewery and the beer which is well worth sampling. There are also supposed to be a couple of ghosts inhabiting the Inn but we didn't have any sightings.

had a midweek break in chester,ideal location right in town,was not offered use of the small car park(must have been full)but there was over night parking a close walk away.spottless accommodation in a very old building,not an ultra modern place not for you if that's what you want, all facilities were in keeping with the hotel.thoroughly enjoyed our stay.even tried the beer that was brewed in there microbrewery.unfortunatly did not experience the ghosts.

we usually stay at a more well known hotel in Chester but decided to try the Pied Bull.
its a great looking hotel from the outside and the reception area and bar look good.
the first thing that annoyed me was that your room bill was to be settled on arrival and you couldn't charge meals etc to your room.
I got room 14 on the top floor and was really disappointed by the size of the shower room and the basic furniture and the very small tv.
the mattress was cheap and uncomfortable, it just wasn't a very nice experience.
the food and the beer were quite expensive.
the only positive was that the staff were very pleasant.
I certainly wouldn't recommend the Pied Bull to any of my colleagues.
Really disappointed!

Room Tip: if you want to experience ye olde worlde Inn room, then this is the place to stay.

Stayed here for one night on business and the Pied Bull is in a great location in Chester. Rooms however are very basic and overall, I would have opted to stay in a chain hotel if I had the choice again.
