Just had some lunch at the brewery tap. Proper pub grub food and the portions are huge (seriously) ! If you like your home cooked fat skin-on chips and big short crust pastry topped pies, you have to come here for lunch or evening meal. As we were only stopping for lunch, the missus had the home made cauliflower soup... More

By far the best pub we visited during our stay in Chester. The atmosphere was great. The range of beers on offer was excellent from blonde to Amber to stout. The food was delicious and the menu contained many food items that many would by pass. The portion sizes were huge. Would go back to Chester just to revisit this... More

This was my first visit and I have to say how impressed I was! We had the lamb Sunday lunch and it was on a par with our usual homemade offering, we don't often have Sunday lunch out as you get disappointed but this was delicious, crispy, tasty roasties and homemade gravy. My son had the fish I enquired to... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The beer choices were excellent and the bar satff very helpful. We loved the medieval hall setting so decided to order food. This was very well cooked and really tasty -not just "pub" food. If you are visiting Chester this is a must!

We returned to the Brewery Tap a year after our first visit and it did not disappoint. The beer is great, the staff are nice and we ordered a beef pie and wedges that was delicious. The layout is grand, yet the atmosphere is relaxing. You can't go wrong.

If you like real ale this is a great choice. We met friends and had a good catch up over a few drinks before deciding to eat. we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food - well worth it!
