PUB restaurant chain Brunning & Price has confirmed that The Architect in Chester will reopen on Sunday (July 12) but The Old Harkers Arms remains temporarily closed.

The Architect on Nicholas Street is one of 20 establishments that will open their doors to customers again from the weekend as part of Brunning & Price's latest reopening phase.
