Fabulous. Was here just saturday 21st december with family that had travelled from other side of country for the weekend so we decided to bring them to chester. This pub my boyfriend and i discovered a few months back after looking for 'a lovely pub with lots of character, which serves good food and drinks' after all the years we've both been visiting chester we finally found one but didn't quite deliver that- It blew us away instead. Loads of character, medieval settings and fixtures. Wood is sourced from old sunken ships for the beams. Food is unbelievable.. Great value, beautifully presented and probably the best restaurant standard meal in a pub i've ever had. I've paid small fortunes for meals and left dissapointed every time- from places with la de da reputations in such like areas. This place totally does chester justice and is a little gem. I can't wait for my next visit to chester just to come here. I'm going to have the ploughmans next time like my dad did haha. Will try and upload pics too. 5 stars well done all involved! Xxxx

The name refers to when King Charles stayed at the nearby Gamul House during the English Civil War. Since buying the business in March 2012 the current owners have spent thousands of pounds trying to bring the Ye Olde Kings Head back to it's former glory. In November 2012, the property had an extensive refurbishment throughout the bar and restaurant areas, every ensuite bathroom was also replaced and redecorated to a high standard. There are currently three completed refurbished rooms, by mid December 2013 they expect every bedroom to be finished. ... more less
