Apologies for any inconvenience.


Home of the famous steak platter, we are proud to boast a menu full of delicious pub food, including a varied selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes.

The Chester Arms is an independent, family run, dog friendly, neighbourhood pub with a small sunshine terrace and a Sunday Roast worth travelling for!



Not only are we dog friendly, we actively encourage you to bring your pooch in. We’ve even got an ever-growing gallery of all our canine visitors!

Has your pup made it to the gallery wall yet?


As an independent pub, we regularly host new guest beers on tap. Below is a selection of our current beers we have on draught.

Thornbridge – Lukas 4.2%

| Our Beers and Ciders | No Comments
Brewed with Bavarian ingredients and undergoes a long lagering period to make sure it’s in perfect condition when packaged. It’s light, crisp and has just a little malt sweetness which is characteristic of this traditional style. Helles is a traditional, elegant Bavarian style of beer originating in Munich. Lukas is straw blonde, full-bodied yet sparklingly light. Gluten Free

Wylam Gold – Wylam Brewery (4.0%)

| Cask Ales | No Comments
Brewed with all gold ingredients - Golden Promise Pale Malt, Golden naked oats, First Gold Hops, with a Willamette hop finish. Fresh, clean flavour with a hint of grapefruit citrus from the Willamette.

It’s Gonna Be May – Electric Bear (3.8%)

| Cask Ales | No Comments
Like tropical fruit sorbet swirled through ice cream, this super-sessionable pale ale is the perfect accompaniment to seeing through those April showers, knowing that it’s gonna be May.
