Historic Pied Bull in Chester completes £750,000 refurbishment

pied bullTHE historic Pied Bull in Chester has completed a £750,000 refurbishment to create a new 50-cover restaurant and an additional 11 bedrooms.

Situated on Northgate Street, it is said to be the city’s oldest coaching house and has operated as a pub since 1535.

Head chef Luke Anderson said: “Having a new restaurant space within an independent business is a great opportunity for me to create new dishes and showcase my passion for food.”

Last year The Pied Bull purchased neighbouring Folliott House and embarked on the renovation project to extend the hotel and restaurant aspects of the business.

Operations director David Poynton added: “It’s a very exciting time in Northgate Street at the moment, with the opening of Storyhouse and the promise of more development on the way.

“We are very proud to be able to contribute to these developments by transforming Folliott House and bringing the building under The Pied Bull brand.

“For a long time now we have wanted to be recognised for being more than just a pub, and we feel that opening our new restaurant space in Folliott House will certainly help that.”
