The Cross Keys is a Joule's Brewery Tap House located within the city walls of Chester on the corner of Lower Bridge Street & Duke Street.

A beautiful Grade II listed Victorian red brick building dating back to 1894. Completely refurbished in 2012 to create a true Victorian look with oak floors, leather seating, etched mirrors and quirky wood panelling. Each of the newly commissioned stained glass windows depict a taphouse within Joules rising empire. This is all complimented with a real log fire in the winter and a southfacing terrace for outdoor leisure on sunny days. This Tap House In Chester is a must for visiting tourists who like a Traditional British Pub.
