user reviews of Kash Bar and Grill, Chester

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Now the Deva Tap and the beer is excellent. Very nice place and an essential visit when in Chester.

Now been taken over by Deva Craft brewery and renamed DEVA CRAFT TAP. Has been totally gutted inside. More details when BITE acknowledges the renaming.

No more Mr Putin the Octopus ... :-(

Since I was the one who originally suggested this place, I thought I’d go back and get further impressions before reviewing it.

One of the outstanding things about this place is the building it occupies. A strange baroque place with a small spire, that has lettering for Railway Cocoa Rooms, which it presumably was originally. Not sure what it was before reopening as Kash a couple of years ago though.

On entering, you first go past an area that was originally where local bands used to play, but nowadays seems to be used for storing brwery equipment . [ Not sure if they still have live music ] You then go past some tables (on the right) and benched compartments (on the left) before reaching the bar at the far end.

The place is obviously designed for a younger clientele than me, hence loud music, dimpsy lighting and psychedelic murals. I’m not sure if the octopus was supposed to look like president Putin though !! Having said that I guess the average age of customers there during my latest visit was well over 30. An interesting touch was that each “compartment” appeared to have its own beer tap – though I’m not sure if they actually worked !!

The range of beer available is very much a case of “what might have been”. There were 6 handpumps, but only 2 of them were serving anything (and one of those was a cider). Similarly out of 8 taps for craft ales, only 5 were actually in use. There was a sign for Frodsham’s Blue Ball Brewery saying “ask about our forthcoming ales”, but the staff didn’t seem to have much clue about that. [ Blue Ball beers were previously advertised on a big screen TV, but that was switched off this time ]

The beers they did have were from unusual local breweries. I had the Patent Porter from Beer Refinery. This was quite nice, but too cold.

I couldn’t seen any menus, or other signs that food was available, but whilst I was there the people at the next table got served with some burgers.

Finally, the gents toilets are upstairs, next to the kitchen, and above the bar. Don’t think about what might happen if there are accidents with the plumbing !!

5/10 – no excuse for so many vacant taps
