Real Ale group – June

A return to Chester on another sunny afternoon.  Lunch in Wetherspoons ‘Bull and Stirrup’ before trying 2 Sam Smiths pubs, The Old Boot and The Falcon.  Nice clean and traditional bars with a great pint of bitter for £2.  Finally The Cellar, a more modern but still ‘real ale’ option. A great afternoon and home by 6.

Real ale group – May

After a quick lunch in Blacklers  ‘Wetherspoons’ we headed for the Pen Factory. It has  a nice airy space inside with a brick building surrounded courtyard outside, which, in bright sunshine was perfect for our group. Then on to The Grapes and finally The Dispensary.  Another really easy afternoon and home by 6.

We managed to get to the pub just before a heavy shower but the sun soon returned for the drive home.  Thanks to Dave for organising a great day out.
