Pretty standard 'Spoon's pub. Very reasonable prices, tidy but not inspiring menu, pleasant staff. This review needs padding to meet with the demanding criteria for TripAdvisor (even though it sums it up really well)!

Cheap beer. Inexpensive food which is pretty good quality. Can get a bit rowdy and unsuitable for small children later in the day.

If hanging out with the dregs of society is your thing then the square bottle I have scarcely known a place where more kroneneburg is consumed before 10 o"c clock than this place.........it has a really unpleasant atmosphere.....and is your stereotypical wetherspoons......one to avoid...

Good food typical of Wetherspoons. Friendly staff. Visited early evening on a Tuesday, plenty of free tables and no long wait for either drinks or food.

Well run city centre Weatherspoons. Has all what you expect. Good inexpensive food and large choice off lagers and real ales that are not expensive for middle of chester.
