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

Walked half way across Chester in the rain to find the Brewery Tap having seen reviews on trip advisor and the Good Beer Guide. Well worth the effort for a truly unique experience. The initial impression of this converted Jacobean great hall is that it is of a huge echoey (is that a word) chamber. However, within a few minutes... More

Not a pub for families,a point in its favour as far as I am concerned. Just had a very pleasant lunch in a very unhurried atmosphere. The building has been well and sympathetically restored. A choice of eight beers on tap. I was spoilt for choice! A fairly short menu but everyone ate well and was satisfied. Mind the steps... More

The building interior has more history within the walls than most countries could dream of. Food is in the traditional pub style but done exceptionally well. Selection of beer is very good especially if you like good beer. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Only word of caution is that children's selection of food is limited,but staff were very helpful... More

Our 1st night in Chester we picked the Brewery Tap simply because it was close to our B&B. Not only does it provide real old pub atmosphere with good selection of ales, it has excellent home cooked meals served by friendly efficient bar staff. Menu selection is quite varied and reasonably priced for pub with better than average food.We returned... More

A nice unusual place for a drink, interesting history around the walls and really good real ales! The staff were very friendly and even let me try the ales before I decided which one I wanted, it is just a shame it shut quite early! Thank you :-)

visited a few times now and always have a wonderful time. We love the homey country feel the place has and both times we have eaten the home cooked food has been excellent. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and portions!

The Brewery Tap is just off the main shopping area in Chester and belongs to the Spitting Feathers brewery. The building has a long history and originally was the home of one of Chester's Burghers. There is an original stone fireplace behind the bar and a section of original wattle and daub wall on display. The seating, tables, and decor... More
