“weatherspoons with atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

we dont often eat at weatherspoons, but occasionally when in chester we will use the forest house, it is not the usual weatherspoons 'drinking pub'. a pleasant atmosphere with more of an intimate feeling. typical food you'd expect, always great value for money and nice for a change to come away having had a good meal with good service, without the feeling you are being ripped off. accept what it is and you will enjoy it.

“Nice layout on different floors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Usual offering from a Wetherspoons place, which means cheap food and drinks, real ale kept well and only £2.29 a pint, but much nicer inside then your average Spoon's feels very cosy with the different rooms and cellar bar and seating.

“Cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

We started here for our night out and for early drinks it was suitable. It gets very busy, but good for what we required.

“Good plain food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

My wife and I used this pub for breakfast and early evening meals. The food is better than the normal Wetherspoons. Good range of real ales and the prices are probably the best in Chester. The atmosphere is what you make it as the pub has lots of different rooms. Service was excellent. This is a better place than the Wetherspoons round the corner.
