The secret's out! Venture down into a 13th century crypt in the heart of Chester's Independent Quarter and you'll find an Aladdin's cave of fine wines, quirky brews and sophisticated spirits. What's more, we've just had a glorious refurb that marries the best of modern and medieval design! Also hosting an array of Tasting Evenings throughout the year to explore your favourite poison. Come see for yourselves!

We all had cocktails/ gins from the main bar rather than the wine bars. The drinks were served quickly and the table service was a nice touch. All the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I’d forgotten how much I’d liked our previous visit 2 years...More

Situated in the old brick cellars of Watergate Street Chester. Corks Out in a hidden away gem with quirky wall seating made from old barrels. With a great selection if cocktails, wine and bubbles. Was the perfect rest stop whilst out shopping. Would definitely recommend
