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.

great location for city visit
Really nice place to stay, full of history.
Great welcome from friendly staff would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Chester. Close to all amenities and Chester Racecourse.
Hospitality at its best
Fantastic 3 night stay at this friendly historic little jewel.
Every member of staff was welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. There's live music every Friday and Saturday - I even got a phone call a few days before we stayed to remind me in case it was a problem for us - and we thoroughly enjoyed the music and the atmosphere in the pub. Many of the friendly crowd each evening were regulars, which made for a great ambience. Chester is a beautiful city and we will be back for longer very soon - staying at Ye Olde Kings Head of course!
