I visited here for the second time in as many years at the weekend. After negotiating the narrow steps from street level you enter the pub through a small split door and are greeted with what looks like a medieval banqueting hall. Directly opposite is the bar where 7 real ales and a cider are served by two very friendly bar maids. Considering that this is the brewery tap for Spitting Feathers brewery they only served one of their owns beers - Thirst Quencher - which I wasn't overly impressed with. I then had a pint of Corvedale St Georges Stout which hit the spot.
The atmosphere in this pub is rather bizarre. All of the other tables were taken so it was quite busy, but most people were talking to each other in little more than a whisper. I didn't mind because it meant that I could relax in the corner and read a newspaper without being disturbed by loud, drunken people.
I could easily have spent several more hours here sampling the other ales on offer, but you can have too much of a good thing, so next time I'm in Chester I'll be heading straight back here - and I recommend you also visit this excellant watering hole.
