Interesting and unusual beers on tap; Wee Heavy is my fave. There is haggis if you want to give it a try. I enjoy there steak pie with fresh carrots on the side. Not your typical bar food.

During our brief stay in Chester, this Scottish Pub was recommended to us by the Karass Innkeeper- it was excellent. Good food and brew as well as charming and reasonable prices. An unexpected treat in Vermont.
