This magnificent branch sits splendidly in the old art deco cinema, on your left as you head along Christleton Road towards Chester city centre.

Modern lighting of over 1,000 lines sets off the heritage of the building, while there is a large tasting room and an area to relax and enjoy a glass of wine from our Wine Emotion machine. Manager Mat Evans and assistant manager Tiffany Vernon look forward to showing you round, and discussing the wide range of wines on tasting.

Meet the Team


Mathew Evans, Manager

In a previous life, Mat studied Genetics at Aberystwyth before learning the ropes of the hotel trade at St Tudno Hotel in Llandudno & the Castle Hotel in Conwy. Now, with more than ten years’ experience in the wine trade and a WSET Diploma under his belt, it’s safe to say Mat knows a thing or two about wine!

His stand-out wine drinking experience was dining with Dirk Niepoort in the Douro in 2014, starting proceedings with a 1917 white port.

It’s not just about the wine though… Mat’s a big beer fan too who has even brewed his own beers with Conwy Brewery in the last few years.

When not at work, he’s likely to be attempting to play football, watching mighty Wrexham FC or walking his two gorgeous Jack Russells.


Tiffany Vernon, Assistant Manager

Tiffany came to Tanners straight out of Sixth Form having had a ball working at Wroxeter Roman Vineyard during her holidays. She’s been busy sampling and adding to her shortlist of favourite wines ever since and, so far, the highlight has been André Perret’s Condrieu which was a Christmas present to herself last year!

A keen writer, Tiffany had aspirations of being a journalist when she was younger and is currently honing her skills by writing great tasting notes. She is also super-keen on cocktails and should be your go-to girl if you need any advice on creating the perfect concoction to entertain your guests.
