We popped in here to relax during the Boxing Day sales. The local ales were good, and the staff friendly. Parking was nearby at the multistorey. It's rather quaint - there's a dress code. One to return to....

Lovely character property, room nicely presented, city centre location ideal for exploring chester. Staff were little distant and unfriendly, didn't feel welcomed when we arrived and because of that and on top of an overly lit bright dining area which zapped the atmosphere and warmth of the place it put us off eating there. Also felt room price should include...

Thank you for your review. When booking on line the tariff states with breakfast or room only rate and if booking direct we ask if you would like to add breakfast on to your room rate. It is always the best option to book direct. I am sorry that you didnt feel welcomed upon arrival as we do try our...

We have stayed at the Pied Bull twice before and return because we love it's olde worlde charm and atmosphere. This was a last minute booking and we weren't disappointed. Double room was lovely, clean, noisy water pipes but that didn't bother us. Room was clean and warm. Had drinks and a good meal in the bar, and we managed...

Stayed in the Pied Bull for one night in the week and I must say it's a loverly looking pub and very smart looking rooms. The inside of the Pied Bull is an amazing olde worlde place with lots of wooden beams and oak paneling and the outside beer garden is like a victorian walled garden with modern seating and...

Staying in the Pied Bull paying 94 pounds and the positives are a very nice clean room in a lovely pub. The negatives are a very noisy street with people walking past from the local nightclubs, the last ones went past at 4am. Having to a breakfast before 9am which we decided against and out of room by 10 instead...

We really enjoyed it. We stopped by for a large family lunch on Saturday afternoon and all went well. We had preordered and we're served correctly and on time. Food was plentiful and lovely to eat. The surf and turf platter (pictured) is a bargain for £15. Plenty for two to share. If we're we're to be picky the Ice...

The Pied Bull is perfectly situated within Chester city wall in heart of town. Shops all around, cathedral 200 yards etc. Found the Inn was decorated with seasonal decorations, staff friendly and pub/dining area very traditional and cosy. The room was small but clean and modern, with tea/coffee making facilities. Had a set of keys with 24 hour access. Couldn't...

I have to say I felt like we got the short straw with our room at the Pied Bull. Room 1 on the first floor, right at the top of the stairs above the bar. Upon entering the room all you could hear was the drone of voices and music below...no chance of a quick half hour nap after a...
