“A magnificent pub”

The Brewery Tap resides within a remarkable historic great hall, which originated in medieval times and was reconstructed during the 17th century (the exterior brick façade was added after the Great Fire of London). This location provides a splendid ambiance for patrons to indulge in our assortment of craft beers.

At “The Tap,” the heart of our establishment is the bar, where we proudly serve a wide variety of cask and keg beers, ciders, and a well-curated selection of wines and spirits. Alongside our renowned Spitting Feathers beers, we also offer a carefully chosen assortment of guest beers sourced from local breweries as well as those from more distant locations.

 Opening Hours are from 12:00pm to 11:00pm Daily


We happily invite families with children and four-legged friends to join us until 8:00pm.

Chef Patron Andrew, a seasoned veteran in the local dining scene, has been a prominent figure in the northern culinary world for nearly two decades. His journey began at The Plough in Christleton, where he was an integral part of the kitchen team that led the pub to be crowned “Best Gastropub in the UK” shortly after he arrived in Chester.

After leaving a mark at The Plough, Andrew took the reins of the immensely successful Ring O’Bells, also in Christleton, and guided its kitchen to new heights since 2009. However, all great adventures eventually evolve, and it is with a heart full of passion for exceptional pubs that Andrew now ventures into a new chapter.

“While my colleagues pursued fine dining opportunities with esteemed chefs like Gordon Ramsay and Michael Caines during our college days, my heart has always been devoted to creating outstanding pub cuisine,” Andrew shares with enthusiasm.
