One of Chesterfield’s best-kept secrets is out in the open and helping to put the town on the map for locals and visitors alike.
The Chesterfield Alehouse on West Bars is a Micropub on the site of a former furniture shop and has been at the vanguard of innovation, inclusion, intimacy and inspiration in the pub trade, for the last two years. In that time, the Alehouse has served over 850 different real ales from 160 breweries, many showcased for the first time, to an ever-increasing number of regular customers and visitors from all parts of the country.
Tuesday evening featured a double celebration for the Chesterfield Alehouse when the second anniversary of its opening, coincided with the presentation of the Town centre Pub of the Year 2015 award from the Chesterfield and district branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale). This prestigious and well-deserved award, recognised the hard work of the owners and was judged not only on the quality of beer but also on criteria including atmosphere, service & welcome, clientele mix, sympathy with CAMRA's aims and good value. This award adds to a previous 2014 CAMRA award for Spring pub of the season and cements the Alehouse’s position as a ‘must see’ Chesterfield attraction.
