“Unique experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

A new and different experience. Tucked away in what appears to be a converted townhouse this bar offers a new drinking experience. Though small, the atmosphere feels very homely and not typically bar-like. Great for a drink or two!

“Lovely landlord”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

We were on a hen party and moved away from the main rowdy group to give my mother a rest. We could not have been made more welcome. The bar has a lovely welcoming atmosphere and great decor. What most impressed us was the kindness of the landlord. We asked if we could get a cup of tea. He went and produced us a couple of cups of tea ( from across the road, probably from his own flat) he gave us these free of charge.
He even chatted to us as we were waiting for our mini bus as he completed his shift.
What an absolute star.
Next time we are in Chester we will visit again.
We will also tell everyone we know to frequent there.

“Nice change!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

The cosmos are dirt cheap and are really tasty. The best part about the bar is definitely the poker table hidden away in the background. Jamie the bartender definitely made our time in the bar more enjoyable.

“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Chester has so many fantastic bars and restaurants but this is not one of them. Cold room, ugly decor with no atmosphere. worst thing was my wine tasted like the bottle had been open for days. Don't waste your money

“Fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Popped in to this bar as it was the first one we came to after we left our hotel. Fantastic Cosmos and prosecco. Really comfy seats and good music but not too loud so we were able to chat easily. I will definitely call in next time I'm in Chester
