A few doors down from Brewery Tap towards the river, this pub is also in an appealing period building setting although uncomfortably busy on the Saturday night I frequented it with standing space only. I passed here on the Sunday and its upper floors were still packed in the afternoon with live music playing. The bar is immediately to your left as you enter with a fairly long row of microbrewery ales with a good variety of brewers represented. There’s also a keg option here too. The atmosphere is good but it is perhaps the most ordinary looking in terms of its interior of the four or five drinking hole options within a 100 yards of each other on this street.

Historic pub in Chester, inside the pub is pretty average, they do a tasting palate of 3 1/3 pints which is good for getting your ratings up

Firstly the building outside is a wonderful timbered building and worth a visit in its own right. Inside it is something of a disappointment as it has been opened out and rather characterless, so despite a relaxed atmosphere it is not as atmospheric as it could have been. The beer range is small, but does carry a guest.

Decent enough selection of real ales with a nice atmosphere. Points also for the sampling paddle!

Nice and friendly pub south of the city center. Interior in solid wood. Had 6 real ales on my visit in July 2009. The Pride of Pendle was in good form. Some locals on their way from shopping were around on a slow afternoon. Friendly and efficient service.

The place located near the river. They have two floors, tv, real fire, 5 real ales and one cider on tap. A friendly service. A very quiet at that moment. Bevan´s Bitter was my choice (26.2.09).

Another old pub in Chester located on the boundaries of the town wall near the river. large pub with an upstairs, plenty of places to sit and has a yard out the back. Food always looks good but I have never tried it. Always has a selection of real ales on tap along with some brand European lagers. Has the Budvar dark lager, which I have never seen before. Beers and usually local ales. Pleasant pub and worth a visit when in Chester.

Winter time since I was last in here and the lasting memory is of the roaring great fire and some quality dark ales. Okells beers plus guests available.

Gazza  (163) Worcester, England | July 27, 2007
A classic Cheshire timbered building dating from the 1600’s and leaning over precariously as if to prove it, the Bear has recently been taklen over by Okells who have refurbished it in cafe-style which has taken away a lot of the atmopsphere but brought in lots of lovely real ales which change regularly. A good stop-off if you want to see the river, but be warned it’s a fair way down a long hill (Bridge street) from the Cross although the superb timbered buildings around make the walk interesting (have a look in the Falcon on the way, a Sam Smiths pub with a long history).
