One of my favourite pubs, the food here is amazing! The staff are super friendly and good chat, there's live sport and the beer is good. Whilst working in Chester for about 6 weeks, I ate here everyday.

The Piper is much improved over the last 3 years. The management team are welcoming and knowledgeable; nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent, as is the menu. The food and drink is reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.
