Housed in a former Victorian chandler’s warehouse beside the Shropshire Union Canal, the tall windows, lofty ceilings, wooden floors and bar constructed from salvaged doors make this one of Chester’s more unusual pubs. The bar offers over 100 malt whiskies and ales from a range of breweries. The daily-changing menu from light dishes such as smoked haddock and leek spring roll to main courses like slow-braised shoulder of lamb with dauphinoise potatoes; honey-roasted ham (served cold) with eggs and chips; cheese, potato and onion pie. The pub holds annual events.
