Add Bear & Billet to your Itinerary

The stunning black and white exterior of the Bear & Billet

The newly refreshed Bear & Billet welcomes you to the historic town of Chester. Offering delicious home cooked food and a wide selection of drinks, continue your sightseeing in this excellent half-timbered traditional pub dating back to 1664.

From sourcing fresh  ingredients to offering a wide and varied selection of real ales and spirits, teamed with the friendly team of staff, the Bear & Billet offers the perfect welcome time and time again.

Built in 1664 to replace a building destroyed in the Civil War, the Bear & Billet is one of Chester’s finest examples of a black and white half-timbered building. Located just within the City’s Walls, the pub has seen many a visitor as it’s loved by both the locals and tourists.

Still containing its original fixtures, The Bear & Billet has subtle hints to its’ varied past (including the resident ghosts). Originally the town house of the Earls of Shrewsbury, the pub is also the birthplace of Beatles’ legend John Lennon’s grandmother.

Spread out over 3 spacious floors, the Bear & Billet offers a fantastic opportunity to hire the historic venue for your very own private function. With fabulous views of the City’s walls, the spacious top two floors offers the right amount of privacy whilst still enjoying the pub atmosphere. The fantastic location and exquisite range of beverages & food paired with the friendly team ensures that every event, no matter what the size, is memorable for all the right reasons.
