I stayed at the Pied Bull in September on a work trip. I was very pleased when I got given the suite, to myself!! Had a lovely bathroom with a roll top bath and a shower. The room is quirky but charming. However! It was a hot night and I literally had very little sleep. As other reviews before mine,... More

Stayed in room in the intro picture, it's huge, about 6 metres by 4 metres, plus a bathroom and luggage space. The room is very attractive with a feature fireplace and appears to have been a sitting room when this was normal on the first floor. Room and bathroom was clean and the walk in shower works well, although drainage... More

We had been in the pub on a previous visit to Chester and thought it would be nice to spend the night there !! To say we were disappointed is an understatement. The beer and the sunday lunch we had was excellent but in the evening the pub is a bit boring too bright and lacking atmosphere. To stay at... More

We stayed in one of the brewers cottage rooms for two nights and enjoyed the stay. The room was small but it felt cosy. I believe these rooms have recently been done so the bathroom is spotless with modern fixtures and fittings. We had to have the window open as it got very hot in the room and found the... More

Firstly.. This pub is a good pub... It's got it's own brewery on site and the black bull is a sublime pint. My biggest gripe with the place is one simple thing, if you drink here after dark, it's like having a pint in your fluorescent bulbed kitchen at home... It has no atmosphere as a consequence...If they changed this... More

Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am delighted that you enjoyed our award winning porter. In terms of lighting it is a great idea that you suggested but due to the age of our building and some features being uneven we keeps the lights on for health and safety precautions.
