Restaurant recommendation for a large group.

Restaurant recommendation for a large group.

Hi all, rather naively I thought I could book a table for about 16 of us without the faff of preordering or paying a deposit. It turns out many places won't offer it. Anyone know of a restaurant in Chester that'll offer a 'no fuss, just book and turn up' style reservation?!

Sorry, can't help as all the restaurants I have dealt with for groups have required either preordering or a deposit and often both.

You have to bear in mind that to accommodate 16 or more of you the restaurant will most probably have to turn away other customers either in advance or on the day. If you then do not turn up they could well have lost most of their takings for the evening.

However, if you you are prepared to give a deposit you will find that Google brings up a number of restaurants in the city that are happy to accept group bookings.

I've booked a table of 20 at Chez Jules in Northgate Street. Do it every year for a post Christmas dinner. Most other places ask for a £5 deposit or similar, at this time of year pre-ordering isn't so prevalent, but some places still ask for it (nightmare!)
