The first house on the site of The Falcon pub was built around 1200. This building was longer and reached further down Lower Bridge Street. In the Thirteenth Century the building was altered and a row walkway was added through the front of the property. The Seventeenth Century the property was acquired by the Grosvenor family. The building was extensively altered by Sir Richard Grosvenor during the time of the civil war. The row walkway was enclosed. After this was done other residents on Lower Bridge Street also sought permission to enclose the row walkway. As a result Lower Bridge Street lost its ancient rows.

The Falcon was first used as an Inn in 1778. In 1879 the building was restored by architect John Douglas. It reopened as a temperance house called the Falcon Cocoa House serving none alcoholic drinks.

In the 1970's The Falcon was empty and derelict. In 1979 the building was bought by the Falcon Trust and restored in 1980 to what you can see today. The Falcon is a cosy traditional pub in the centre of Chester.
