The oldest.......






....continually licensed premises in Chester

Dating back to the 11th Century and once a coaching inn. The Pied Bull is the oldest continuously licensed premises in Chester. It has a colourful history and its fair share of ghosts. The cellar is  haunted by the ghost of a cellar man from 1609 and two guest rooms are haunted by a chamber maid from 19th Century.  In 1533 it was known as Bull Mansion, and a coach and four started to run from here to Birkenhead in 1784. Today it's an oak-beamed town centre pub with rooms. We offer great value food and clean, comfortable and competitively priced accommodation.
