Starter: Risotto was slightly undercooked with too much lemony tang in the sauce. Main course: ragout of duck was salty and quite tasteless. Dessert: creme brûlée was lovely but with the dessert spread thinly on the dish, the caramel topping over it was too much. Topping to creme brûlée ratio was a touch high
Terrific modern restaurant outside the walls of Chester.
Inventive menu, really terrific sauces and flavors, every course was a winner.
Great little restaurant.
Very good food and excellent value for money
Nice cosy location
Great service with lovely food. Will definitely return for more!
Cosy restaurant. Limited menu but varied. Fish, beef, veggie etc. My friends loved the hake starter and squid ink risotto. The only criticism I had is that the gravy served with the roast beef was far too intense. Quite sticky and sweet tasting as well as overly salted !
The prices are steep for some items eg £5.50 for a side of cauliflower cheese. Also £1.50 for "extra gravy".
I had a really nice time here .
I had hake ceviche to start, it was lovely. It was really light and fresh and the toasted peanuts and added a great bit of texture. Had the Duck leg for the main, itwas a bit bland and the skin wasn't crispy at all. Rest of the garnish was a bit average but the jus was really good. Have the Eton Mess for dessert, was very light and fresh not too sweet, very good.
Service was excellent very friendly and informative.
£60 for two adults and two children, very good, very affordable & good atmosphere
Arrived after 5 minute walk from Airbnb- so handy! First visit and very impressed by experience . Good menu and service. Very good value too. Would seriously visit again when in Chester.
A treat for the taste buds! Small place, friendly staff & amazing food!
I had really been looking forward to this meal and the restaurant did not disappoint! The food is beautifully cooked and presented. We tried their signature dishes - roast beetroot salad with sticky walnuts and the braised feather blade - both delicious. I had the roasted monkfish and loved the rich sauce. The wine list is well balanced and reasonably priced.
All round great experience. Some of the tastiest and most creative food I have eaten. We had an early dinner so more limited choice but not a problem and amazing value. The young staff were a delight. All knowledgable and able to anticipate our needs. The kitchen is visible from the dining area and we could see that staff worked as a team without appearing rushed. If I lived nearer I would be back every week. Please come and open a restaurant in the Birmingham area!
An unfortunate bit of timing, with a large party upstairs. Waited 45 minutes for a simple vegetarian main dish after finishing the starter. Reasonable quality but nothing special
Perfect birthday meal out. Food and service were amazing, as always with Gary Usher’s bistros. One of our favourite places, really can’t recommend highly enough.
We went for a late Sunday lunch. The service was top notch, friendly and attentive but not overbearing. The starters were filled with fantastic flavour and the gnocchi main was amazing. I also felt it was great value for money at £25 a head for 3 courses. We really couldn't fault anything and look forward to returning again one evening to try the main menu.
It was our wedding anniversary.
We’ve been before a couple of times.
Food was excellent as always.
Service was warm and friendly which makes for a great atmosphere.
Overall just a great experience.

We enjoyed a 3 course lunch menu on Saturday. Food was exceptional, however was a little on the salty side for our liking. Presentation of food was impeccable and service matched.
Fantastic as always , service from the moment we walked through the door until we left left was excellent. Sirloin on the bone was amazing with a great bottle of recommended wine to compliment it. Great ambience and setting.We will be back!
Very enjoyable experience.
A bit quiet at first but by 2pm it was busy.
Excellent meals, good service.
Throughly enjoyed our evening. Food was delicious, service was friendly and attentative. High end food without pretentious trappings. Can't wait to return.
Always a lovely a treat to enjoy with great company. Food surpasses my expectations every time.
Nice meal at the restaurant, but quite honestly I think the prices are bit high
Another lovely sunday lunch at the Sticky, i had broccoli soup starter and pork main. Great stuff as always.
A lovely little restaurant serving good quality well presented food. Good choice of tasty dishes and a welcome kids menu. Really enjoyed the experience just a little disappointed that the soup and gravy seemed to be over salted.
Baked Cod - very small portion and if no side dishes (at extra cost) ordered would have been a very scanty meal for £25. Braised Beef which rest off the party had was a lot larger portion and cheaper and came with Chips.
House wine a bit dear at £20 a bottle.
Very good service though.
Nicest meal we’ve had in a long while! Food was superb, the waitress was very helpful and knowledgable.. Atmosphere very nice and cosy, we sat upstairs and was a little darker (it wasn’t DARK though!!) which made it nice and intimate. Would highly recommend and will be trying out their other restaurant!
Wonderful meal. Stunning value on the early evening menu. Friendly and helpful staff. Go if you can
Gorgeous little place with really happy and enthusiastic service and the food was absolutely amazing
Fabulous food and service! £5 in a taxi from Chester and we’ll worth it
Always a pleasure to have dinner at The Sticky Walnut. Consistently excellent.
I just like food when its cooked with care. My favorite in this restaurant is the sauces they make.
Excellent lunch time menu, very good service and good ambience.The Italian white wine was also very good, but a little pricey.Recommended.

On s est régalé! Et pour des français exigeants c était pas gagné!
Un restaurant anglais tout simplement délicieux a recommander ++++
Outstanding food that was full of flavour. This together with the pleasant ambiance and excellent service made for a very memorable experience. Although not cheap, the cost was reasonable for such high quality dishes. Definitely on the “go again” list.....
We thought that the portions exceeded expectations, which was great. Slow service for additional order. Wine expensive.
Amazing food overall. We will return!
Perfect food great service every time we visit.
Draught beer would be nice
Fab roast dinner I had the beef. The boyfriend the pork. Not your average roast lots of flavour !
Lovely lady server - blonde and tall didn’t catch her name, but she was nice attentive the place has a relaxed atmosphere.
Amazing food, atmosphere and service! Our waitress was very attentive and friendly and made us feel welcome and relaxed throughout the night! Got recommended by a friend for a special occasion and i would definitely recommend to friends in the future. They even brought out a birthday plate for my boyfriend without having to ask :)
Excellent ambience, food and service. This is highly recommended.
Its is always excellent and this time was no exception. It was to celebrate a birthday and they made a fuss when it came to desert.
It would be 5 stars all round if not for the over large choux dessert. All the courses apart from that one dessert were of the same standard as Michelin star restaurants I have eaten in. An excellent meal.
