A Sam Smiths pub on the edge of the city centre (just the wrong side of the inner ring road). Although genuinely old, it has apparently only been a pub for about 40 years – though I can certainly remember it from the early 1980s, when I started drinking. It’s a bit of a rambling warren of a place. From the main entrance, you pass directly into the room, with the main bar almost immediately on the left, BUT you have to turn sharp left before it and pass through a passageway to get to another room with a smaller bar. On the right from the entrance you pass down some steps into another smaller open plan area (with toilets hidden behind a corner). In season the main room features a large real fire, but unfortunately there is nowhere to sit to take advantage of the warmth !

As I said, a Sam Smiths pub, so I don’t need to say anything about the beer. Except that on my latest visit, my OBB was far too cold.

Not sure about food. They certainly did it in the 1980s, but I couldn’t see any sign of it on my latest visit.

Nice friendly good looking pub. Can't rate it above say 7 because it is Sam Smiths (some will like that but it's not really for me the lack of choice of other beers though as said this does have a better range of bottles than most SS pubs).

It's worth a look for one or two though for the building and friendly staff/punters.

Was actually en route to the Brewery Tap, when myself and my cousin stumbled in here. We were both pleasantly surprised to find it being a Sam Smith's house, as users previously commented.

1000 times better than the other Sam Smith's pub in Chester - The Boot Inn. Lovely bar area with pleasant bar staff and a wider range of SS bottles on offer than I have seen in other outlets. I clocked a bottle of Imperial Stout in the fridge, and their wheat beer and Indian Pale ale on pump.

Place was busy on a Sat mid afternoon. There was a plaque up telling the history of the building but I can't remember what it said now.

Recommended.

A very attractively restored Samuel Smith's pub and a lovely pint of Extra Stout, YUM, 7/10

If anyone in your company likes a G&T this is definately not the pup for you. The new (less than a year I think) will not buy a lemon ! I have witnesssed numerous customers leaving the premises because of this.
