As always the food and service were outstanding, a great wine selection, and the staff are very attentive. our only "gripe" was that we were rushed through the courses, and out in no time at all

A must visit place if you are ever in Chester. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The understood the menu they were serving and were able to talk us through the wine list in great dept. The food was delicious, and so beautifully presented. The menu was simple but thoughtful. Using local produce, good quality ingredients and wonderful flavor combinations is what made the choice of what to have difficult. Would definitely return again and again.

Otherwise very good

Lovely food and very friendly service. We had chicken pate and a clam risotto to start with. Then stone bass and trout to follow. Shared a cheese plate which included to our delight Beaufort before sharing the baked Alaska, really very jolly. Negronis to start and Picpoul to drink. Lucky choice.

Cannot really fault the quality of the food albeit on the pricey side. We were upstairs which we felt was too quiet for us, there seemed to be more atmosphere downstairs so would have preferred to have been there.
We didn't have the starters which didn't really appeal to us, but we did have the foccacia bread and olives which were delicious.
I had the feather blade beef which was lovely however the portion of Parmesan chips which accompanied the dish was not enough really. My wife had the roast lamb which had enough potatoes for her to give me a few to add to my dish. We finished off with the Sticky toffee pudding which was divine.
Overall great food, however do not like it when restaurants are stingy on portion sizes.

Very happy with our Sunday Lunch on the whole. The table location perched right on the edge of the stairs was our only niggle. There were other free tables available but we were told that they had been specifically booked a long time ago. The vacant tables remained so right up until five or ten minutes before we finished our meals. We will have to ensure that we specify a specific table next time and book it a long time in advance.

The food was good at the sticky walnut but we found it expensive for what we received, we don't mind paying for good food but feel the overall experience isn't one we would repeat as we found it was overpriced.

Had heard great reviews about this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. It’s a small, intimate venue tucked away in Hoole village but the offerings on the menu were varied and the flavours big. I opted for the torched cod with cucumber and horseradish emulsion to start, followed by the feather blade of beef with parmesan chips for the main event and finished with the choux pastry filled with dark chocolate and cream. The food was well presented on the plate and the portion sizes were just right. The food was cooked perfectly and all the flavours worked well. There was a good choice of beers, ale, wine and spirits to wash it all down too. I’ll definitely be giving this restaurant another visit soon!

With friendly, knowledgeable, warm but not intrusive service on top.
