Instead of taking in its famous zoo or hunting Welshmen with a bow (yes, you're legally allowed to), why not explore the best sports pubs in Chester? This glorious city may not seem like the sporting capital of the North-West, but just as the Cheshire Cat proved to us, things are not always as they seem. There are a great selection of bars in Chester showing every game, race or matchup you could want. It maybe less adventurous, but probably a smidge safer, to watch a game in a fine boozer, rather than go on a Taffy hunt armed with medieval ballistics. Also of note the mighty Chester FC may have just started out in life but are definitely worth a watch when they're on the box. As long as you're warm and cosy with a pint, however, we're fine.
Pubs & Bars
Watergates Bar (Chester)
This former church has been converted into a Meccah for sports fans. The city centre pub offers high-quality British pub classics and a fantastic selection of quality drinks to enjoy in a trendy and relaxed atmosphere. Not one to miss if you're looking to catch all major sporting events on the numerous widescreen HD T.V's.
George & Dragon (Chester)
A top-notch sports bar in the city centre serving excellent food including vegan options and there are also plenty of things to banish the half-time boredom including table football, pool and darts - the holy trinity.
Spital Vaults Chester
A proper quality old fashioned boozer showing all the live sport your heart could desire. There is a billiards table which provides hours of fun and a darts board if you're feeling really competitive. There is always a super friendly crowd here which won't fail to show you an awesome time.
