This historic pub is situated in part of Gamul House, named after Sir Francis Gamul, a wealthy merchant and mayor of Chester who built it in 1620. It is reputedly where Charles I stayed when his troops were defeated at Rowton Moor, shortly before the king’s final flight to Wales. Relax with a Thirstquencher ale and enjoy the pub’s numerous period details, then choose from a menu of hearty favourites such as pork and rabbit rillettes, prune purée, cornichons and toast; pearl barley risotto; and Spanish pig stomach and white bean stew.
