Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Very busy for Burns night, but this meant live music, a jazz pianist and bagpipes!
    Lovely cocktails, plenty of choice and fantastic atmosphere, the secret bar makes it feel exclusive!

    Friends of ours had visited that Beer Place and liked it so much that they organised a beer tasting evening for a group of us. I’m not a beer drinker, and I like scrumpy, but I only really drink wine so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We had a fabulous evening and I’d definitely recommend the beer tasting - even if, like me, you’re not a big beer drinker.
    The place has a great atmosphere and I loved the simple decor, the benches , the fridges, and the shelves of merch. Service was friendly and attentive, and Dale was excellent. I thought we’d be given a few beers and just told about where the beer was from, but we were given explanations of brewing techniques and lengthy descriptions.
    We tasted a variety of beers and a couple of ciders. I’m a big fan of scrumpy and what I particularly liked was that if we told Dale what we liked then he knew instantly what to serve us. The cider I wanted to try wasn’t available on the night but that’s good because it means I will have to return soon to try it.
    I’d definitely recommend visiting if you’re in the area, and if you’re looking for something different to do with a group of friends then the beer/ cider tasting is great.,

    I visited this little gem just before it was officially taken over at Christmas, and I thought that it would be a bit of a challenge to get it up to a decent standard again. Well done Liam, it’s back to where it once was, and Guinness is the best I have tasted for a very long time.

    We didn’t realise the Love Shack was a party venue with 2 floors that were for a private party. The dance floor being the top and middle being the bar area. We had the best party! From start to finish Nathen was amazing! He was so so patient and accommodating with everything we needed. The two floors is perfect with the dance floor at the top. We couldn’t have picked a better place to have our party. The staff on the night were wonderful and couldn’t do more for us. They were fantastic! Thank you so much to the team.

    We went here for drinks before we dined at the Sticky Walnut. The place was not too busy, as it was quite early but the barman was very helpful in recommending cocktails. We found this to be a very pleasant bar to visit as the decor and ambience were very good.

    I visited Chester the other day with a couple of friends and stumbled across the pub. When ordering drinks at the bar the barmaid politely asked me to remove my cap. No problem I did so. Not long after an obvious local came in with a straw type hat on and kept it on all the time we were there.

    I don’t mind rules but if you have them they should apply to all.

    Apart from that a great find with good cheap beer. A pleasant place to spend a couple of hours with no kids no music no swearing and no hats ... usually.

    My friend and I were recommended this place. I am so pleased we had the recommendation. It had a 'chilled' feel to the place. Unusual as we sat in some vaults to drink our ale of choice. Some draught ales and 100s of cans to chose from. Fabulous staff.

    We hired this venue for our son’s 21st birthday. I can’t recommend it enough. Great space for 70 people. Alessandra organised everything and maintained communication with us on the run up to the event. The bar staff on the night were super friendly and attentive and made gorgeous cocktails 🍹 thanks you so much for making it a night to remember

    My friends and I loved this place when we visited on a rare child free night out on a Saturday. We hadn’t been before and happened to walk past.
    Big pro - loved the music there and it’s a well stocked bar. Toilets are clean and it’s a buzzing place.

    Cons - We didn’t realise you kind of need to book a small table to sit down and enjoy your drink. We had been there a couple of hours when a barman approached us and told us they need to reserve the table and could he move us. Not a problem so we moved to another table further along the room. Then after 45 minutes of sitting there a different barman came and asked us to move tables again! He politely apologised for the inconvenience of moving us again and then said could he get us some more drinks brought over by way of apology?! Apology accepted yes of course you can! I work in the industry and where I come from that sentence “can I get you some more drink to apologise for moving you again” means the drinks are on the house. We assumed this… until he pulled out the card machine”! Never assume!

    Be prepared to bring your card as this is a card only bar!

    Abby the cocktail maker was fantastic. She was attentive on a busy evening made the best Bloody Mary ever and was very humble when given the compliment

    Came in for a couple of drinks, started with one of the taster boards and got recommended a few afterwards based on what we liked. Charlotte was incredibly friendly and helpful, we ended up buying a bottle of our favourite gin to take home!

    I've been coming here for 2-3 years now and it was a bit rough at the start but things have really improved over the last 6 months. Lots of building repairs, fresh cloths and cues and cleaner and tidier too. The staff have always been friendly as well.
