More Information

While the Handbridge is located in an affluent residential area of the same name it is important to note that this is just a short stroll from the Chester City walls and the River Dee. As such the future proposition of the pub will be able to benefit from community walk to traffic but also as a staging point for revellers heading to and from the City nightlife.

There has been a comprehensive investment in the site to bringing the pub back to life as a real community asset with a proposition to suit. Currently there is a great home cooked, contemporary menu complimented by heritage ciders, craft beers and cask ales and world beers. A place to enjoy great coffee in a relaxed atmosphere or a uniquely poured draught lager, all in surroundings that we would describe as having “A Bit of Style!” This is truly a premium local with the added benefit of a wonderful beer garden which is a key asset and the envy of the competition.

You’ll be an experienced operator, and you’ll quickly see how you could continue to embed yourself within the community here – perhaps the area’s already familiar to you? The food offer will remain important to compliment the healthy Wet sales; while maximising the beer garden through spring and summer will be “icing on the cake!”
