Richmond Liverpool

Just a quick note. I'm in the Richmond Liverpool following a shopping trip. Just had a pint of George Wright's Velika Hiša Povo brewed specially for them and I have to say, honestly, it's one of the best ales I've ever had. Slovenian Celeia hops which are perfectly balanced by a plenty of malt. Very...

Re: The Bull at Shocklach to close

I'm completely shocked and saddened by this news. Although I'm a city dweller and only visited your pub once , I was very impressed. I'm very much an advocate of the country pub for its atmosphere and being the centre of village life at a time when many villages are fast becominging domitary suburbs...

Railway Arms, Brook Street

I was reliably informed, by one of the Brook Street traders, that the freehold of the Railway Arms in Brook Street is up for sale for circa £250K. In the right hands, I think this could do well.

Re: Cross Keys

Agree with Mike, tried all 3 beers today with Spring Zing the seasonal guest. I like the Slumbering Monk so will have to put the Keys on the regular circuit. :drink: I went in today, tried the range, and the beers were on top form. I love the distinctive, slightly Burtonish, taste of the mineral wa...

Re: SSSSSSSSSSSSH DONT TELL ANYONE

I went in with Luke this evening and tried both the Pale Ale and Slumbering Monk which were both Burtonish on absolute top form.

Well done to Joule's and landlord Kevin on this excellent addition to the Chester real ale scene.
