No. 5 The Carlton Tavern
Visited on 17/2/11. And so to Handbridge. Walking through the doors of this fine establishment was like stepping back into an era when people socialised and pubs were popular - busy, lively, great atmosphere and superb ales; Hydes bitter, Allgate California, Marble Manchester bitter - all spot on. Great service, no gastro element and a very low ponce factor. Used to have a reputation as a bit of a rough house, but now without doubt one of the best boozers in Chester. Highly recommended.
