My favourite restaurant. The food is outstanding, the staff are friendly and even when we took someone there that had quite a few allergies, the chefs managed to come up with some great alternatives. The birthday cake they made was really good and served eight of us as a pudding with some to take home, great value for £25. The... More

This restaurant really is special, nothing is to much trouble. The food and service are sublime, a real Cheshire gem. We will be back again soon.

Oh wow! What can I say, my Beef dish was out of this world! If you like the Sticky Walnut, be sure to try the Burnt Truffle as well. Both spectacular!

The only down side to this restaurant is that you usually need to book at least 6-8 weeks in advance for parties of 10 and 4 weeks for smaller tables on Fridays to Sundays. Game features on the menu and the wine list is exceptional/ JJP Chester

Visited this restaurant recently on recommendation, for a special evening where my daughter had come up with her boyfriend from Hampshire to announce her engagement. Table for x4. It was busy and we couldn't be accommodated on the ground floor but there would be a table upstairs in 20 minutes. We went to the local pub and returned 20 mins... More

I am a huge steak fan and amateur cook and let me say.... this was easily the best chateaubriand I have ever tasted..... and there have been more than a... More

Whilst not a palatial restaurant & only small, it is very much a posh café. The food & service are very good sitting at old style kitchen tables

I almost don't want to add this review as it might make it harder to get a table. This is just my favourite Chester restaurant. A small space with a very cosy and friendly atmosphere. They make food that is both beautiful to look at and eat with really interesting ingredients and taste combinations (including, of course, sticky walnuts). I... More

Three course Sunday lunch for six people. Popular rustic restaurant with a quiet buzz and relaxed atmosphere. Excellent service without being over-attentive. Fine dining delicious food with excellent flavours. Each dish enjoyed, from smoked mackerel to roast beef ,chicken liver pâté to hake. Recommended wine was perfect. Excellent quality and value for money (£175 including wine and drinks). Would highly... More
