No. 2: The Bouverie Arms

Visited on 10/2/11. This was a wonderful old neighbourhood local pub which has now been transformed into what in effect is an extension of the Chester College (sorry 'university') students union. Shit decor throughout masks the original Victorian features and includes album sleeves blue-tacked to the walls. Oh so friggin' Bohemian. It looks like a student's bedsit. Fortunately there were no vodka bottles stuffed with sweets behind the bar and to be fair, the change in character has probably guaranteed it's survival. Seems quite popular wid de yoofs. Ale was the unremarkable and almost generic Deuchars IPA.


  1. Owned- and spoiled- by the people that brought you the Faulkner.

  2. Under new management new decor come and see us.

  3. New decor's a step in the right direction, but tell me about the beer - will call in some time if you're still doing real ale.
