We regularly use Burnt Truffle and have rarely been disappointed. Sunday lunch last Sunday the 12th was no exception. This was a celebration lunch for my mother’s 83rd birthday and the quality of the beef(for my wife and mum) and pork belly(for me) were exceptional. The portion sizes were perfectly judged and the cooking exemplary. A Sunday roast isn’t exactly a cooking challenge but as with any classic meals, get it right and pass the “couldn’t do it better myself “ question is what you hope for. Burnt Truffle passed with flying colours. Thoroughly recommended!

Superb food in a great location. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and it isn't even terribly expensive all things considered. I have no idea why this place isn't booked up solid weeks in advance, it's almost too good to be true really!

I have been to the burnt truffle several times and have always had an excellent experience. I had the duck hearts for starter which was unusual but delicious. My partner had the soup for starter. We followed it with the featherblade beef & duck leg. The portions are excellent & all the food is delicious.

Great service and incredibly tasty food. The after eight desert was one of the best sweet dishes I've had in a long time. I will definitely be going back again.

From the moment we walked in to the time we left I can only say just perfect. Food is superb whatever your choice, great selection of wine and cheeky champers, gorgeous room to dine in downstairs and the sweetest staff! Big up to Peter and the girls for attentive and friendly service, can't wait to dive back there for 2020. All the best for continued success! Victoria and Polly.

We had a lovely meal for three mid-week. The food and service were excellent. We each had a different item from the menu so had a chance to sample a range of items. All were fantastic. Would definitely recommend this bistro

Having enjoyed a terrific meal previously at Sticky Walnut in Chester we were a little disappointed with Burnt Truffle. First impression was good and the waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable but the food didn't really hit the spot. There were no light lunch options which we would have preferred as we were not really after a bistro menu. The food was ok, the setting was pleasant (although there was only one other table occupied) and we enjoyed the experience but it wasn't up to Sticky Walnut standard and relatively expensive. Specifically, it was a bit odd to have charred warm broccoli with cold burrata, the pork knuckle was a bit devoid of flavour and the choux bun was a bit crisp and dry.

This was our fourth visit to Burnt Truffle. Overall, it was enjoyable but on a future visit I would avoid sitting at the table adjacent to the kitchen as the sound of the kitchen fan is annoying. Unfortunately the table by the window which we have had on previous occasions was booked for a regular couple who didn't, in the event, show up.

This was my third visit in the last two months. Excellent location and food has been consistently excellent. Choice of music is great too, and it’s volume is just right, not inhibiting conversation.

Highly recommended!

My wife and I decided on a trip to Heswall for the day from Ormskirk and booked the Burnt Truffle based on something my wife had read about it. It was a cold, wet Tuesday lunch time but the food, ambiance and warm welcome brightened our day considerably.

We chose “nibbles” rather than starters; the olives, bread and hummus were excellent. For main course I chose Plaice which was Terrific and my wife the beef - again first class. As the portions were generous for such rich food we shared the Blackberry based pudding which again was excellent. We washed the above down with a very nice and reasonably priced Chablis recommended by the waiter.

Food, service and atmosphere excellent. We will definitely go back.

I had a delightful evening with relatives.
We were a little boring and all had the featherblade because I remember how amazing it was.
It didn’t disappoint !!
Service was excellent.
It’s a cute little building set back from the road, lovely interior.
Dim lighting. Very relaxing.
If I lived nearby this would be my ‘local’ in fact I might even visit my relatives more so I can return !
