this is indeed a lively chatty pub but it’s probably best left to the locals. Had to wait 10 minutes for the worldweary landlord in here to churn out my pint of vinegar IPA. The other handpumps were off so I just left it and moved on. a long pub that stretches down the street and traditionally decorated. I like this kind of pub but I probably wouldn’t return unless i lived locally.

In this back street local it is hard to believe you are in central Chester and less than 50 yards from the busy tourist canal area. The corner entrance leads to a small bar room with a bagatelle table (billiards type as opposed to spring fired ball type!). There is also a larger lounge room. Only London Pride was on sale from the three handpumps but it was on decent form.

Back street local not far from the train station. Basically a 2 roomed pub with a raised area to the rear. At the side of the entrance is a bagatelle table. A couple of real ales were on on my visit and though they weren't great the lively banter during my visit made up for it. Its a thin pub and a friendly one. I liked it.
