Welcome

This is a proper old city of London boozer, only in Chester, that has a really good reputation for its food - it's a great meeting place over a pub lunch, and at different times you'll find half the commercial and professional heart of the city in there.

It’s a very social place with a lovely clubby atmosphere, and you’re pretty much bound to meet someone interesting.

Book online

Use the calendar to book a table. If the time you're after is not available, give us a call and we will try our best to fit you in. We keep some tables for phone bookings. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the pub as a bit of a 'city boozer' in style, it is not suitable for children.

Reserve a table
