Not the most appealing of 'spoons both inside and out, it still, however, serves its purpose. Called in for drinks and snacks on a Saturday afternoon, it was heaving, and extremely loud. Managed to find a table, but the queues at the bar were immense. Decided to order via the app, which worked very well. The friendly staff seemed to be rushed off their feet, many tables remained dirty and uncleared. Food and drinks arrived in good time, the food was well cooked and good value. Didn't hang around for too much longer, as you couldn't hear yourself think.

Not my usual haunt, but fitted the bill when looking for a light bite one even8ng, which didn’t cost the earth. Ordered chicken burger & sweet potato fries with a soft drink for about £7 and to be honest, we got what we paid for. It filled a hole, but wouldn’t recommend.

Been visiting this Wetherspoon's pub since the day it opened. Revieved this pub about
Three times. This Whetherspoon's establishment is now in uncontrollable control? I live in Rhyl and I visit daily all Whetherspoon's outlets in north Wales and Chester. Visit Llandudno,Colwyn Bay, Mold, Holywell (which I love and Shotton) Wrexham and of course the Sussex in Rhyl, Go to Ruthin as well? My tipple daily in Whetherspoon's outlets is a pint of bud light this is not possible in the Square Bottle? Surely some person at Wetherspoon's office has noticed the very very poor results of the sales of bud light at the Square Bottle ??? Everytime I visit there's a excuse, "can't serve it's frothing of course it's going to froth if never used ? 37 years a publican and never ever heard so many excuses. Actually approached the manager last week he said which was laughable "not pouring this anymore because of my waste" Is it his waste or Wetherspoon's ? How about this horrible man becoming unemployed and the new manager sorts out the problems with bud light like a good proper landlord does. Please go and have a pint of bud light in Shotton, Holywell, Mold, Wrexham x2,Ruthin,Rhyl,Palladium Llandudno and the Picture house Colwyn Bay ? Please send this man further East ?

Just waited 15 minute's at bar to be served and told no food orders being taken. No explanation whatsoever. This is wethersooons and we've never heard of that before..... We always go here every time we go to Chester. Not anymore.... Very poor service and not enough staff. Tables dirty too. What is explanation For not serving food? Very disappointed customers. Maybe new management needed then?
