Quinno _ left this review about The Bridge End Inn

National CAMRA Pub of the Year in 2011 so I was really stoked to be doing this one and I wasn’t disappointed, a nice relaxed oasis inside with plenty of chat and the locals are a friendly bunch. Located down a dip just off the main road, a couple of minutes stroll from the train station. It has a lovely old interior over a couple of rooms via an entrance lobby. The left side is essentially a snug, whilst the right is the main bar with quarry tile flooring, wonky wood beams, red fabric banquettes, traditional wood furniture, log fire and some nice bits of breweriana. To the rear is another room which was unoccupied but I assume is mainly used for functions. Six ales on during my visit from Heavy Industry, Rudgate (Brass Monkeys), Flying Monk (Mighty Monk), Sunlander (excellent shape – NBSS 4), and the sublime Batham's Bitter (NBSS 4.5). A notable change is that the homebrew is no more, but with stuff like Bathams being available, I can’t say I was disappointed! A timeless drinkers pub and a real treat. I didn’t want to leave, put it at the top of your to-do list. Now.

After busy Chester it was nice to come to what felt like a country pub with reasonable prices. When I arrived along with a few others we were all shunted into the small left bar as there was a funeral reception going on in the main one for one of the elders of the family that run this pub. I was happy to go along with this for the duration of my stay. I later discovered that the right bar is larger and that there is a small snug round the back. I noticed a Border Brewery mirror on the wall that made me wonder if they were the original owners. I dug out a really ancient North Wales beer guide to discover that it was once a Whitbread pub.
Beers noted here were Big Hand Little Monkey, Marble Pint, Weetwood Best, Holden's Special, Fernandes Session IPA, RAT White Rat, Fat Cat Honey Ale, Wye Valley Bitter, Stonehouse Ballast Porter and later on McGivern Matt Black. I stopped here for a few and had the Honey Ale (£2.80), Holden's Special (£3.00) and Matt Black (£3.00) all of which were excellent.
I liked this place a lot and would definitely return. It gets a very strong 9.

Exceptional pub with consistently good range of ales. A real drinkers' pub.
