The title says it all. This is a very popular pub close to the "guest house strip" which seems well supported by locals as well as visitors. The interior of the place is quite welcoming with tables nicely spread. Service was appalling (non-existent was more like it) for the first half hour or so, but as we didn't have time... More

We intended to have just a drink and were greeted by 'A Greeter' one permanently just inside the door. There was an air of friendly efficiency as people arrived and we decided to stay for a meal. We were not disappointed the food was delicious. Glad we stayed.

Eat here most nights when we are staying at the Stone Villa on our trips to Chester. Love the food, well presented, good quality food. Good atmosphere in bar/restaurant, great service from friendly staff. Will be back down again in October in Chester, and definitely be eating at the Faulkner !

First time dining here and will definitely try it again. Great ambience, friendly efficient staff, good choice of beers and reasonable prices too. My only disappointment was no salads on the menu which is usually what I would order but the burger was good. My husband was VERY impressed with the chips.

After busy exploring the city of Chester it was nice to find a welcoming pub to have dinner. It gets busy so you need to book if you can. The food was good and reasonably priced and they had specials nights the 2 nights we were there. A great local pub.

I guess it pretty much depends on what time you come here. We came in at 7 o'clock and although the bar was pleasant enough the whole ambience of the place was that of restaurant as opposed to pub, and the focus of the staff was likewise. You almost feel like a nuisance if you just want a pint. Fortunately... More

We went for family members birthday, staff and service were brilliant and accomodating, food was nice, i did wish i'd picked the pizza though instead of the 'steak' burger. There was an error where they put another tables bill on to ours as well , which added an extra £50 to our bill! Luckily WE spotted this. The place was... More
