We called into Corks Out on Chester Races day and it was lovely. I had a cracking Brockmans gin and Sicilian lemon fever tree gin and my girlfriend had a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio. Lovely atmosphere and great service.

Great nibbles on the menu. We love the corkage wines from next door. The self dispense was a lot of fun also. I also went back at the weekend for more.

Found this place whilst wondering around Chester on a Saturday afternoon. We had Malbec and Elderflower cocktail and Bloodt Mary. Lovely. You can get a taster card and sample wine too.
