Braised Featherblade of Beef

Dined at 9pm but it still had a good atmosphere with a few tables still eating and 2 more tables filled while we were there. Great service friendly staff.
We had a marvellous Saturday lunch here with my mother. The food was superb and the service was absolutely first class. We were with my mother who is in her 90's and the staff looked after her extremely well. Great wine list as well. The atmosphere is great and I wouldn't hesitate to book here again. It is always completely reliable.
Perfect food and service once again which is why Sticky Walnut is the restaurant I have been to the most .
Fantastic food, very friendly service. Fully recommend.
Came here with my husband as a special treat. Food was delicious and service fantastic and very attentive. Lucky to have such a wonderful restaurant on our doorstep
Great food and service as always
We think it would help your customers if they were advised, either when booking or discreetly on arrival of the time for which the table was available.We had enjoyed three courses and finished our drinks but felt we were being ushered out, which jarred with what was otherwise an enjoyable meal.
Such a lovely first experience here! Amazing food, fantastic service and just a lovely calm atmosphere. We especially liked the added touches of complimentary focaccia at the start of the meal and fudge at the end! All brilliant value for money, we will be back soon:)
Our starters (mackerel and cheese dumpling) were superb. They were so tasty , and plentiful.
We both had the same main course - braised featherblade of beef and parmesan chips was its usual magnificent self.
Our drinks - Negroni and G&T were great aperitifs and the wine - Shiraz - went beautifully with the beef.
The waitress who served us was extremely helpful in many different ways.
Another very pleasant evening at The Sticky Walnut
Brilliant food and great selection of wine choices
Absolutely fantastic food the Featherblade Beef was amazing fell apart when cut into delicious!!!
Magnificent food as ever. The sea trout starter was miraculously beautiful. Staff charming and attentive. Never been let down. Always a treat beyond (high) expectation. Merci!
Food as ever beautiful and just a delight to eat - the limited time on the tables is a real shame - only allowed 1 hour 45 to complete which did not feel very relaxed - we were late so even tighter - so good and service really great but I wish more time - even whole 1 hour 45 does not give time to relax
Great service, relaxed atmosphere with a cosy feel. Starters were lovely, I was disappointed with my choice of mains. Paid an extra £5 for Skate Wing, big mistake, All bones or cartilage, very little flesh and tasteless. My wife had the Blade of Beef which was lovely. Paid extra for the veg which was cooked to perfection. Both of our sweets were really good. We will return and we do recommend for you to try.
Really great food. Everyone enjoyed it so much. First time back since lockdown and fully lived up to expectations. Thank you all.
The best restaurant in Chester - hidden away in Hoole. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive.
Impeccable service, understated but faultless cooking, superb attention to detail. The restaurant equivalent of getting a big hug from your mum when you go home. Perfection.
welcoming, brilliant food, the new menu is excellent and very good value. Will be visiting again
Always an amazing time from walking through the door to leaving! Amazing food, staff are brilliant.
Really pleased with my first visit. Pleasant clean interior. Attentive and friendly staff. Great tasting food presented well. I'd visit again.
Really excellent lunch - couldn’t fault it and really friendly service
Perhaps after reading previous reviews, we were expecting better. Our Sunday lunch experience was disappointing. The roast potatoes were the highlight of my roast Sunday meal. Hubby chose the sea bass fillet and only scored his meal 2/10. I thought my score of 7/10 was on the generous side. Some of the vegetables come as pureed with added oils which ultimately add an unwanted acidity to the meal. The deserts however were both enjoyable - sticky toffee and crumble and rescued the overall experience. As a couple we enjoy exploring eateries in all forms when away, however our honest opinion is that despite the breads which are served when you are looking through the menu and the good service, £26 for the 2 courses is overpriced. Would not recommend to others, it's ok at best and I think would not survive if it was located outside of Hoole.
Best Sunday lunch in Cheshire ! Well worth the wait !
Our first visit to Sticky Walnut. It was a long wait but worthwhile. Service was great; food lovely and the house Malbec finished it off nicely. Maybe it was us, but we found the ambience a little lacking…… maybe something to consider.
Will we return, yes we will
Brilliant vegan prix fixe menu, for which they charge an extra tenner for some bizarre reason.
1st time at the Sticky Walnut and what an amazing experience food brilliant staff fantastic and so chilled out.
We will definitely be doing the experience again.
Lovely and good value food. Beetroot starter particularly good.
Excellent friendly service. I had a trout starter which was perfection personified. The chief’s combinations where excellent. We will go again.
We were booked in here by our hotel - we had not heard of the restaurant before. Incredible value, amazing food and fantastic service. Michelin star quality food and drink. Knowledgeable service. Amazing. Would definitely recommend.
Great quality good, very friendly staff, lovely evening
My absolute favourite restaurant for special occasions. It doesn’t matter what you order from the menu, it will always taste amazing. The staff are always so friendly and make you feel very welcome.
Lovely bistro style cafe with excellent service and a unique menu. The food was served with a smile, all cooked to order.
Very poor experience unlike usual. Burnt chips, uncooked fish and creme brûlée with just sugar on top
Fantastic meal for a special occasion. Staff were lovely - attentive, knowledgeable and accommodating. The food was delicious, portion sizes perfect to be able to eat starter, main and a pud! Our waitress suggested a wine to go with my main and it was perfect! I loved the small and intimate vibe of Sticky Walnut. Will certainly return to this beautiful restaurant.
Fine dining lunch for under £25 each. Remarkable quality. Remarkable value.
This is possibly the best value for quality restaurant I've ever visited. Go there. Now!
Excellent service, food and ambiance.
COVID safe distancing didn’t detract from a lovely lunch.
Delicious food, with some innovative dishes as well. Staff was very attentive, and we did not feel rushed at all. Intimate setting, an amazing place to have a nice dinner. Would definitely recommend!
My partner and I decided to celebrate our anniversary at Sticky Walnut having lived in Chester for nearly 10 years but never visiting what is considered one of the best restaurants in the area and one of the top 100 in the country. The food did not disappoint, the interior was lovely, the price was very reasonable and the staff were perfectly pleasant. We were served up butter instead of mayonnaise at one point and that same member of staff insisted she’d given us our desserts the correct way around when she hadn’t which was comical more than anything but otherwise - a perfect visit.
Excellent value for money. Great food.
Simply outstanding. Food to set your tastebuds alight
