Situated in Chester's thriving Canal Quarter, The Cornerhouse is a characterful, independent bar, housed in a beautiful listed building. Its spirit comes from those who run it, the team behind the multi-award winning bar, The Cellar, also on City Road.

The perfect place to meet with friends, enjoy quality wine, gin and cask ale, share generous food platters of cheese and charcuterie, and watch live music and comedy in a relaxed setting. Outside is a summer sun-trap and inside offers a roaring fire when it's cold.

Stretch out on old leather chesterfields, read the papers, and challenge friends to a board game.
