Had light lunch here during pre-Xmas stop-over. Great ambience, good selection of beers, prompt, attentive service. Location by canal could be good in summer. Subsequently visited another Brunning & Price pub at Old Colwyn for dinner. Similar good experience overall.

We did not have a meal in the harkers as we only stayed 50 yards away and they were only serving xmas dinner, and we were staying over xmas in chester and having xmas dinner at our apartment. You can only have so much turkey!. For the 5 days we were in chester we were in the harkers at some point every day, such a lovely place to have a drink or two

13 of us enjoyed amazing food at Harkers Chester on a very busy Friday evening for our work Christmas night out. Both the food and service were excellent! It was great value for money too.
