Very good value for money especially as I had a voucher of the internet for a... More

While the food was very good, the general service by the staff disappointing. Majority of the time they were congregated around the bar, on their personal phones unaware of people waiting for their service. Staff seem unfriendly and inhospitable. Felt like it was a chore for them to serve us. Probably won't return.

We were enjoying a day out in Chester and fancied a Pizza for lunch. The waitress was very pleasant, the house wine was perfectly acceptable but the pizzas were very disappointing. We both ordered a Pizza Cotto. The bases could have been crisper, the toppings were not very substantial - there wasn't enough cheese and mushrooms and some pieces of... More

Having visited other restaurants within the chain, we had experienced basic but consistently good food, a relaxing, cosy atmosphere and attentive service. Not this time. Let me start with the positive, the staff are generally very friendly when they do serve you and the atmosphere is cosy and... More

We spent hour or so walking about trying to avoid any where that was too crowded, too rowdy, too loud and had a menu we liked. We were greeted at the door and were given a choice of seating. Elizabeth the server was amazing, she seem to interacted with all the customer, gave us the right amount of attention and... More

Very friendly, efficient staff. Food and drink was prompt and very good. Quite close to the door which gave us a few icy blasts.
