user reviews of Cellar, Chester

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

Possibly the best choice of beer in town and clearly aimed at beer geeks . On the expensive side but well worth it for the range of ales on offer.

Well, nothing in my previous review was actually incorrect, but I’ve come to rather like this place. It certainly is very convenient for a quick half (or two !) on the way back to the station, with a better choice of beer than others nearby. There is nearly always a dark cask beer on tap, and keg Titanic Stout is usually available. There is a list of beers on the left as you enter (opposite the bar), but it should be taken with a pinch of salt – there will almost certainly have been one or two changes since it was written. [ Gives you a good rough guide though ]

The main problem is the prices ! On my last visit I was struggling to find anything under £4 a pint ! And some of the weird & wonderful craft ales can be up to £5 for a half. Thankfully they do CAMRA discount on Sundays – Thursdays !

7/10 – it grows on you

First stop for a beer in Chester on a Saturday night and the place was heaving with post race goers and people watching the England vs Wales rugby world cup game on the televisions.

Easy to get to the bar with the 2 barmaids working quickly to get the punters served and away from the bar.

6 hand pumps with an eclectic mix of ales available. The only brewery I had, had before was Celt Experience so I choose a pint of Cellarium III @ 4.1% from the local Deva Craft Beers. As well as the 6 cask ales there is a large selection of bottles available, with again several from smaller less known breweries .

We only stayed for 1 drink as I wasn't interested in watching the rugby.

Good quality cask ales - deserving of its Good Beer Guide status. £1 off on Mondays too!!

The first thing to say is that this place does not live up to it’s name – it’s at street level ! [ I believe there is a cellar available for function hire though ] On entering the bar is immediately on the right. Whilst there are a few high stools and comfy sofas, most of the small room is empty to accommodate the hordes expected here on Friday / Saturday nights. Looks a bit stupid when the place is virtually empty on a Sunday afternoon though ! Sports are shown on large screen TVs but not obtrusively.

There are 4 or 5 handpumps serving real ales that you almost certainly will never have heard of before ! I had the Odyssey Blackout which was reasonable. There is also a range of craft keg beers available – though these aren’t wildly exciting. I believe food is available weekdays, but don’t know any details. Certainly there were signs saying “free pork pies all day Sunday”, but nobody offered me one despite there only being one other person in the pub !

5/10 – not my cup of tea.
