My husband wanted to take his daughter who is 10 to watch the match tonight and decided on The Piper - They have had a fab time having been welcomed by the manger who kept my daughter involved throughout the evening along with serving a lovely meal! The atmosphere was great and they had a lot of fun- thanks!

We were recommended this pub as we were staying at the Hilton down the road whilst working in Chester. From the moment we walked in the staff were so friendly they couldn't do enough for you. The lamb burger was spot on. They were holding a charity night and the place was packed. It was so nice for 3 strangers... More
