Now reopened as a Brewhouse & Kitchen. Will report when listed under that name.

Closed at the moment. Some talk of it being reopened as a Wetherspoons with rooms/accomodation but we shall see.

Shame, as whilst I'm not a big Spoons fan (and Chester is a place full of decent pubs) this was one of the best Spoons nationally in my view in terms of decor, clientele, staff and beer range.

Whereas I don't like the Square Bottle at all. The beer range and quality is good and some of the staff are very good as well. However the clientele seems to me to be a mix of tourists who won't come back for repeat business and very heavy drinking rough and ready punters of a different nature to almost any of the other pubs/bars in the Centre of Chester.

I'm sure it makes money but to me it's a real pity the Square Bottle is the one they kept open, whilst this one was closed down.

We came out of the spoons around the corner Square Bottle having not buying a drink with only two bar staff serving and the punters being knee deep at the bar.

So glad we did as we quickly found this corker of a Wetherspoons. My pint of Blueberry Bitter 5% by Coach House Brewery was superb. It easily rates with the beer standards of the Waterhouse in Manchester - if not, better.

Directly above the bar, the ceiling goes up with spectacular original features, and is the standout point of the pub. We didn't venture into the downstairs part as it was mainly for diners.

A very nicely decked out Lloyds No1 Bar with well kept ale. The pint of Firestone Walker "Red Nectar Ale" was divine, 8/10

This place has a sort of stately home feel about it. Very large, interesting multi-roomed there are plenty of seating or standing options. Had a beer from Coach House Brewery in Warrington. I would have probably spent a bit more time here but it was getting late.
