At Spitting Feathers' Brewery Tap, we are determined to offer the widest selection of the best cask ales. There is always a choice of beers from Chester's own brewery - Spitting Feathers, as well as a range of guest ales (usually from local brewers) and a traditional hand-pull cider.
The Spitting Feathers brewery was established in 2005 and has rapidly gained a reputation throughout the North West for brewing quality ales, having won several awards during the time since the brewery started.
Good, honest food and drink is served up at The Brewery Tap in the historic surroundings of Gamul House, a former Jacobean hall. Try a drop of the award-winning stout, Old Waverton, produced by the Spitting Feathers Brewery.
A seasonal food menu is also offered - pies and casseroles are particular specialities - using ingredients gathered from local producers. Speak to the bar staff about tours of the brewery and the farm where they rear rare-breed pork and produce fruit, honey and home-smoked delights.email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The setting for The Brewery Tap is Gamul House, a Jacobean great hall originally home to the Gamul family (the 18th century brick façade is a later addition). The Gamuls were a very wealthy merchant family with a powerful private army.
During the civil war from 1642-1646 Sir Frances Gamul was a prominent loyalist and lent his army to the defence of Chester. King Charles 1st stayed at Gamul House from 23rd-26th September 1645 at which time the Battle of Rowton Moor took place close to the city, a decisive battle in the civil war.
