Went on Friday night late on and was charged 8 pounds for two halves of lager. Despite repeatedly asking the bar staff to justify the price they would not give a straight answer. Either the bar staff are doing this independently or being encouraged by the management. Absolute disgrace

Few minutes later they where still charging customers (young students) the £4.40 price this is totally out of order... More

Hello, £4.40 is very cheap for a premium beer in Chester, Other places you pay a lot more. I can assure you it was a till error and this has been rectified. It does not matter weather you are a student or not we do not discount draft prices for anyone as that just Isn't trusting customers fairly. I was... More

Went here on a Saturday evening and it wasn't over busy. The bar staff were pleasant and there was plenty of drinks choice. Great place to go for a few social drinks

Not just poor. Very poor. I purchased a Groupon voucher for lunch here and tried to book in to use it today28th January, only to be told they are not honouring any Groupon vouchers! I am very dissatisfied with this situation and I think the Amber Lounge is treating its customers very badly by failing to honour these vouchers. If... More

Went with girlfriend after getting the Groupon voucher online. I was a bit worried after seeing some of the reviews but the food was awesome! Definitely would go again with or without the Groupon. Service was quick and friendly. Didn't spend the full value of the voucher but felt we didn't need to! We went for afternoon lunch

First of all the menu had changed (for the worse in our opinion) and never got the good deal we paid for. Secondly the food was off a poor standard. The new potatoes were rock hard and dry and the salmon was well overcooked and dry. The chips were also way overcooked and took copious amounts of mayonnaise and vinegar... More

We were due to eat here via a Groupon voucher in Jan 2016. After reading iffy reviews I decided to call on the day to check they actually reserved our table for when they said they would.

We must admit it was quiet in the middle of the week which didn't bother us. We had a tapas starter to share and a main meal. The food was loverly and the guy who served us was very polite and very helpful. We decided on a couple of cocktails which we totally enjoyed. Would recommend this place to go... More
