I guess if you are in Chester, you have to visit it, right at the beginning of the centre of Chester, beautiful Tudor style building, cosy a nice place to meet with friends, lots of locals go there at Christmas time is a great place to go to.

Never been in the Falcon despite all my years in Chester. Didn't have anything to eat however the local ales on tap were great. A little bit of the tourist trail so a good spot for a quiet drink away from the bustle

A timber framed building with hundreds of years of history is home to a warm and friendly welcome at this city centre pub.

Visited this pub whilst having a few days away. Lovely atmosphere with character, delicious food and not over priced beer, what more could you ask for? All staff very friendly and helpful. The pub was clean and in an ideal location. Highly recommend!!!
