The Pied Bull is the oldest coaching inn in Chester dating back to the 11th century, meaning that these days it’s a pub full of charm as well of plenty of beautiful original features. Featuring a bar which serves a huge range of local ales and beers brewed in the pub’s own micro-brewery, as well as a beer terrace for warmer days, The Pied Bull is bustling full off people.
The classic pub-food menu features everything you could want in terms of crowd-pleasing dishes and is also very reasonably priced, meaning that it’s a perfect spot both for popping in for a quick lunch, or for getting cosy and spending a long evening of eating and drinking.
The huge red brick building which houses the pub could be spotted from a mile away and radiates friendliness before you go inside. So, when you head inside to find the cosy bar and dining area, with its low beamed roof, and comfy leather furniture, you’ll find yourself immediately wanting to find a cosy corner and order yourself a drink.
When it comes to the food menu, starters range from cheesy garlic bread to potted shrimps. Classic pub mains include fish and chips, hunter’s chicken, and a Lancashire hotpot. Alternatively you can order sharing dishes such as loaded nachos, or a delicious mezze platter which includes halloumi and hummus. On Sunday’s there is of course the option of a full Sunday roast with all the trimmings and a glass of wine for just £13.95.
If you’re feeling like something a little lighter, there is also a short sandwich menu as well as a selection of jacket potatoes available. Pudding options range from Bakewell tart to a molten chocolate pudding. To go with your food, as well as the various beers on offer, there’s a short selection of wines available.
