Been here a few times now, but never got around to reviewing it before. Well if you want somewhere to go that is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city centre outside, then this is the place for you ! Of course there is a downside as well ...

The pub is long(ish) and thin. Seating ranges from comfy sofas by the door, through chairs and tables to a couple of long benches at the rear. [ These are to cater for when they occasionally have major sporting events shown on the rear wall ] Decoration consists of posters and murals on the walls.

Beer is from Station House brewery of Oswestry. On my latest visit there were two pumps in use, but there are 4 in total and I have seen them all being used on occasion. I tried the Station Butter, which was OK, but nothing inspiring. A comment that could apply to every beer I’ve drunk here ...

5/10 – there are far better pubs in the vicinity.

Not a bad pub with Stonehouse beers in Chester city centre. The exterior is attractive, whilst the interor is simple. Beers on were Sunlander, Station Bitter, Cambrian Gold & Off The Rails. The fizzy "pear cider" on offer was from Briska. The beers were nothing special. Toilets were very dark.

Stopped in here for a drink early evening on the way to a restaurant and had a couple of decent beers from the Stonehouse Brewery. Quite a rustic, olde world feel with random nick nacks around the place - not the poshest pub ever but I liked the laid back atmosphere and friendly bar staff. We went back in a 2nd time that night after our meal and it was a bit more lively - again good atmosphere and we sampled a couple of whiskies from the large selection they have on offer! Would go back next time we're in Chester.

This place appealed from the outside with its historic appearance. But once inside it was so basic to the point of it looking like a doss house!

Only redeeming feature was the original till.

A total shithole, in fact so fucking awful, your humble narrator could not finish his pint. Death comes to all of us, this pub only hastens the process.
