We frequent this pub for its vast and ever-changing selection of local ales... Great atmosphere and friendly staff! ... There's not a massive amount of seating available, so it's always a good idea to arrive fairly early if you want to bagsie a seat for the night. Food is good, substantial honest British stuff... Perfect for cold evenings at this... More

Have only been here for drinks with friends and we love it, the atmosphere is amazing, only small inside and always have to sit on tables with strangers and find chairs, but somehow the place is always full of friendly people. Have been here on many occasions and have enjoyed every visit.

I had read the reviews before visiting with friends & none of us were disappointed. The pub was busy on a Saturday afternoon 3 weeks before Christmas, which always a good sign. We were initially concerned as we intended to eat & you do have to pounce on a table when someone leaves, but this didn't take long so we... More

What a fantastic building - beautiful and well restored - it almost has a Mediterranean feel to it. The range and quality of beer on offer was fantastic - non of your usual run of the mill mass produced brands. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We didn't eat but the food looked ace and we wished we had made... More

Started our evening here. Great beer, a good choice of ciders. Old and historic building that gives a unique atmosphere. Busy but we could still hold a conversation.

My hubby and I went for lunch yesterday at 12noon and it was so peaceful and quiet, despite the huge Christmas shopping crowds in Chester. I had the Welsh Rarebit which consisted of three slices of bread with the most wonderful cheese topping. I ordered a side green salad with house dressing (it was enough for two!). My hubby had...

This is a great place if you like your real ales and continental beers, we visited on a Friday night and it wasn't too busy but had a nice vibe about it, there was a very good selection of drinks, I really recommend this place.

Busy Saturday in Chester full of Christmas shoppers becomes a relaxing experience when adding a visit to the Brewery Tap. Ordered meals for eight of us and it arrived quite quickly and at the same time. Not a beer drinker but others in my company do, did and enjoyed it. Food was good, Welsh rarebit had just the right amount... More
