No. 51 The Little Owl

Visited on 19/5/11. Formerly the ‘Eight Rights’ and situated on the new(ish) Deva link road separating Blacon and the rest of Chester, this place has only been built 5 minutes and has already changed it’s name. Who dreams ‘em up by the way ? Personally, I’d like to see new pubs given traditional pub names but with a modern twist - ‘The Ecru Lion’ maybe, or how about ‘The Royal Bonsai’ ? First the good news anyhow – real ale was available: Marston’s Pedigree and Wychwood Hobgoblin. We celebrated by having a pint of each. Both were passable. We got one free and also got a free glass – not great when you’re travelling by bicycle with no means of carrying it, but we had it anyway. Dunno where it ended up. The bad news is that this place is very much focused on serving cheap food. Why anyone would want to eat a meal that costs less than a fiver is beyond me, but there you go. There’s obviously a market. Not on this occasion though, by the look of it. The place was practically empty. Staff were pleasant. Glad of the company maybe.
