My first visit here to test the cask/keg reviews. I ordered a Tiny Rebel drink. A Real Ale I usually like. It was cold and gassy and one of their keg versions. I asked the barman if they do cask and he pointed to two taps at the back of the bar. I had the Hook Norton which was good. The other was Big Hand. The cask was £2.30 for two thirds and the keg was £4.30 for two thirds (£6.45/pint!). Cask v Keg, No Contest!
About the pub, high beamed apex, bare brick walls, I quite liked it. But a choice of £2/pint in the last pub and here, again, No Contest.

This has become the Commonhall St Social since the last review in 2013; I didn't notice any weighing scales so presumably that connection has now gone. Disappointingly there did not appear to be any cask ale, not even any blank handpumps, but a stout by Wild Beer on keg looked an interesting option. Unfortunately that was not available though the chap behind the bar said they have something else by the same brewery on that tap - this was Pogo, a pale ale with some passionfruit flavour coming through - and having accepted the offer of a taster I asked for a half. Unfortunately the beers here are only served in schooners (2/3 pint) so that is what I ended up with, at a cost of £4.30 or £4.40. If you scale that up, a pint would have cost £6.45 or so, and I don't think it was worth that (just my opinion).

There are a selection of games and stuff near the stairs. Toilets are upstairs, gents were clean and fresh but quite small.

ROB Camra left this review about The Weighing Room

Upmarket bar owned by Chester racecourse. The entrance and the bar itself is narrow, but it goes back quite a way. This was the only part open on our Wednesday evening visit and their were only another 6 or so people in. There are a set of jockey weighing scales in the bar and the walls have jockeys colours in frames on them. It's very smart in here and the barstaff were very friendly The bar is towards the rear and there is a choice of high end lagers available. I had a Peroni which was OK for fizz. The other half thought the red wine was very good. The prices are a bit steep, but not stupidly so. I thought it was OK in here, but the other half loved it, so we'll be back.
