Sadly has now reduced its handpulls to just 4 and all are their own beers.

11/10/16:
Has been refurbished and is much better than before. It brews its own beers on site, which you can see via a window on street level. 8 handpumps on the bar with 6 beers on, 1 'coming soon' and 1 'brewing now'. All beers are their own Brewhouse beers. Various crafty beers are also available on keg. The layout inside is much the same as the old Wethers with a cellar bar.

7/6/16
No longer run by Wethers and the early signs aren't good. The layout and furnishings are the same but more importantly the beer selection isn't. Only 5 handpumps on the bar with 1 unused, 2 dispensing Bishops Finger and the other 2 having a thing that's their own called Lubbekke German Pilsner (or something like that) and another one I've forgotten. Not good. (4)

Have been once before on a Saturday evening about a year ago, and was looking forward to paying another visit when a trip to Chester came up. Like the Pied Bull, part of the attraction here for me is that they brew their own ales and so you get something different here that you would not see anywhere else.

The chap serving behind the bar, who through chatting to later discovered was called Jack, was very knowledgeable and friendly and took time to welcome customers as they came in. He likes stouts so was keen to recommend an alternative when my first choice, a smoked stout by Brewhouse & Kitchen, was not available. I then stayed for an IPA and a can of peanut butter milk stout from the fridge. Before I left I was given a leaflet on brewery masterclasses, experience days and meet the brewer sessions, which I thought was a nice touch.

One to visit and would definitely go back (again).

This is a conversion of a superb Georgian building which to me has been rescued from JDW by the Brewhouse and Kitchen chain. There are multiple interconnected areas, mostly with magnificent high ornate ceilings and cornices and with a huge high domed area above the centre of the bar. Side areas have curved arched open stone and brick ceilings. Lots of quality ancient exposed brickwork, parquet flooring with a tiled area around the bar. The building is a delight.
Ceiling fans whirr away, there is designer lighting above the bar with bulbs in glass bottles, pewter tankards on hooks, antelope heads are displayed and a large fishtank is full of hops.
As you enter, the in-house brewery is to your left, with free to view the copper vessels, a malt store is within. Inside are detailed illustrations of the brewing process with explanations. Friday one's on were, B&K Forest House, Golden Boy, Deva Viltrix, Arthur's 9th Sunset Curfew, Castrum Judge plus a cider from Orchard Pig, Ginger and Chilli....interesting possibly. Lots of also potentially interesting bottles in the fridge. You can do a brewery experience day here for £85 includes brewing your own sample brew and a 5 litre keg of it to take home.
Very busy on a Friday lunchtime and justifiably so, the chain is new to me and I will explore further as I enjoyed my short stay here.
