Rowton Poplars Hotel

Friendly family run Independent Hotel, Bar and Kitchen. Sunday Carvery – Big brekkies – Bistro nights- Live music – 2 for 1 cocktails – Local ales/beers. This great bar, restaurant and hotel does exactly what it says on the tin. Always a warm welcome, good quality food and drink and a fabulous beer garden too.

We recommend; Enjoying a drink in their gorgeous beer garden on a warm late-Summer evening. Simple pleasures are definitely the best. 


The Boathouse

Now this is what I call a pub-with-a-view. The Boathouse in Chester has one of the best outside spaces in the city with its sunning riverside location, a floating barge and the cutest beach huts for the perfect socially-distanced Alfesco experience.

We recommend; Enjoying a drink on their floating barge taking in the stunning views of the picturesque River Dee. It’s perfect. 

The Pied Bull

There are lots of great surprises to be found at The Pied Bull. The most incredible bedrooms, a microbrewery (the smallest inside the city walls we believe), great pub food, a couple of friendly ghosts and this fabulous hidden garden right in the heart of the city. We love it!

We recommend; Their menu is full of great quality Pub Classics – and their pies are truly delicious.
