Located up steps from the street is the Brewery Tap which is in Gamul House, a grade II listed hall. The main bar area is in a high curved ceilinged rendered room with wooden beams in the roof space. Standard furniture is found throughout and the bar is in the right rear corner. As the name suggests, this is a place for beer fans with eight cask ales being available alongside some craft keg products. This is home to the Spitting Feathers Brewery so their Special, Empire, Mustn’t Grumble and Thirst Quencher were available alongside Broadoak’s Crimson King, Wantsum’s Black Pig, Bragdy Twt Lol Glog and Salopian’s Flash Point. I went for a pint of the citrusy Thirst Quencher which was very good. Locally sourced food was advertised, but I didn’t spot a menu.
The lack of television and music makes this place a perfect spot for lovers of beer and beer related chat. Customers can even take in their four-legged friends, with treats available from the bar. I found the service to be very friendly and will be sure to revisit next time I am in Chester.

This is a really good pub and arguably the best on Lower Bridge St. Two roomed with the right side room used for dining. 8 handpulls on the bar with a good variety of styles being available. Though its a Spitting Feathers owned place only 2 were on on my visit with the rest being guests and a cider. Its always a must do when I'm in Chester.

Up some steps to get in here as the pub is on a raised terrace, parts of which date from the 1500’s and indeed Charles I stayed in this building once, prior to the Battle of Rowton Moor. A Jacobean banqueting hall interior, it’s an oblong room with a high ceiling, large ex-fireplace and painted rough-hewn walls which made for fairly terrible acoustics. Dangling hops and hung tapestries vie for extra decorative embellishment. Note the perpsex covered door and bits of wall, presumably to protect very aged stuff. Seemed quite geared towards food and there were only a smattering of non-eaters. Eight pumps with four Spitting Feathers ales on; Thirst quencher (NBSS 3) and Odd Ball (NBSS 3.5) sampled. Also beers from Coach House (Gunpowder Mild) and Magic Rock, plus cider from Broadoak. Ate here and the food was fine but the advertised pies are not proper pies, they are puff pastry lids on a ceramic bowl of stew, sigh. It’s something a bit different and worth popping in for when you’re doing Chester. 7.5
