About the hotel
The Kings Head is a traditional Inn built in 1622 on the west side of Lower Bridge Street. The name refers to when King Charles stayed at the nearby Gamul House during the English Civil War. Originally it was the town house for Peter the Clerk, the administrator of Chester Castle.
It initially contained a section of the Chester Rows, but these were enclosed during the alterations made between the 15th and early 17th centuries. It is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building. With its deep history comes many tales of ghosts and sprits. Paranormal teams have carried out studies within the Inn for a number of years and believe there is up to thirteen sprits trapped within our walls. Since buying the business in March 2012 thousands of pounds has been spent trying to bring the Ye Olde Kings Head back to its former glory. In November 2012, the property had an extensive refurbishment throughout the bar and restaurant areas, every en-suite bathroom was also replaced and redecorated to a high standard keeping to the traditionally character of the building. So, why not sit back unwind and soak up the friendly atmosphere whilst savouring your favourite drink in front of one of our open fires; indulge in our freshly prepared meals all cooked in house to order from award winning locally sourced supplies cooked to traditionally British pub classics with a modern twist.

Ye Olde Kings Head
Excellent for a short stay in Chester
Enjpyable Birthday Break
Just returned from a 2 night stay for a trip to Chester Races.
Lovely little Pub with very friendly and helpful staff. Had room 6 at the top with a four poster bed which was lovely but only problem was the less than powerful shower. Great location for the Races and City Centre and live Music which is a bonus. Breakfast was superb and freshly cooked with plenty of choice and we would definitely stay again if visiting Chester.
