Bit of a strange place this. From the street it looks like two completely buildings, one brick, the other half-timbered. And the illusion continues when you enter, because there is no sign that there is another entrance in each of the small rooms they lead into. To get from one to the other you have to go round the back where there is another (larger) room and bar linking the other two together.

I’m afraid that is about the most interesting feature of the place. The beer available is straight blah Marstons – and not even the most interesting ones of their. Each room has a separate bar, so it’s difficult to count up, but I think there were 5 different beers in total. On my last visit I had the Ringwood Boondoggle – which was WAY too cold.

Food is served, but I didn’t see a menu, so can’t tell you anything more about it. Also, it’s the kind of place that shows big sporting events on TVs, though they aren’t as intrusive as some other places.

Anyone who goes here rather than the many other great pubs in Chester needs their head examined !

Called in one afternoon and had a pint of Boon Doggle (Ringwood Brewery) 4.2%. Good layout of pub with central bar area meaning plenty of places to sit. Cost was around £3.85 which I guess is to be expected in the centre of Chester. Pleasant atmosphere, pleasant pint. Would visit again.

Wasn't impressed with this place. Only Jennings ale available yesterday which was poor considering Chester Races brought large numbers of customers to the pub. The building itself is interesting though.

7th pub of the night - split opinions on this one- real ale available and 6 pints cost 18.80. IMO - soulless place with good seats though. In my companions opinion - couples pub...lets get married...! :(
