We called in here on a recent visit to Chester. It’s a lovely pub and there were several cask ales on offer which we enjoyed sampling.

10 of us descended on the Marlborough on Sunday afternoon. We ended up staying there for about 5 hours! Such a relaxing pub. Really friendly bar staff. We played Trivial Pursuit - we had such a good laugh. We will definitely be going back again.
