Quinno _ left this review about The Lodge Bar

Set back from the main road with a modern glass-fronted exterior, this is a hotel bar gone full 2019. Very modern interior and quite upmarket – a place to see and be seen. All very Hollyoaks and designed to appeal to Chester’s young and trendy set - furniture from John Lewis, clean lines (not those sort of lines!) and few people under the age of 50. Lots of outside seating which would be pleasant on a summer’s day. Maybe surprising, therefore, to note that one is in the 2019 GBG, hence me schlepping out this far out of town. Three pumps at the bar and all on, I went for the Mobberley Pink Grapefruit which was definitely GBG standard (NBSS 3.5). Forgot to note the others at the bar due to the scrum to be served. Overall it’s decent enough and serves a niche rather well. Whether you’d want to head this far from town based on what you’ve just read will be up to you.

Small Guesthouse/Hotel , with a decent size public bar , the bar is L shaped and has a few cosy corners , there is a Bagatelle table at the far end .
Three handpulls on the bar with two from Magic Dragon and one from Ambersand , staff were very friendly , customers were from the more mature end of the spectrum on my Tuesday lunchtime visit .

A nice enough guest house bar. The bar as you walk in had a few handpumps serving real ale and a drinking area to your right provides more seating. Its ok but not really pub-like.

Chester Tourist left this review about Bawn Lodge Hotel

This old Chester Guest House has had a make over in the last few years. They have added a public bar on the front with a glass paneled entrance, beer garden and outside seating. Inside is clean and modern with nice seats. The bar is facing the entrance with a large flat screen TV on the wall. There is a side room and back games room.
