    Even if you’re visiting Chester for the day like I was, l it’s definitely worth the 25min walk from City Centre to get to this restaurant. Great food, good service and pleasant ambience. Overall excellent value for money.

    I was treating my two good friends to an early dinner. We were all thrilled withe the menu and quality of the cooking. The staff were more than efficient and professional making our experience memorable. Therefore I would not hesitate to recommend sticky walnut as an ideal place to enjoy a lovely meal.

    Fantastic meal with family - we went on a Sunday. Two of the party had the roast beef, the yorkshire puddings were immense! I had the cod which was delicious and my mum had the pork belly, which she enjoyed so much. Also had a kid’s menu for my daughter. Great service and nice atmosphere. Will definitely come again.

    Having high expectations of this visit I have to say I was very disappointed. We ordered two full breakfasts at £13 each and although tasty was disappointed to only receive half a mushroom and half a tomato. The sausages were small, the bacon was ok yet a little fatty. The toast was very basic white sliced bread so didn’t match the price points advertised on the menu. All in all if you are going to charge a premium price a premium product needs to be provided.

    Lovely being back in Sticky again, as it’s been a while and now they do breakfast thought we must give it a try. I had the waffles & chicken, it was delicious apart from the thick skin under the crisp batter which was not to my taste as it was chewy but other wise delicious and that waffle. Wow. My husband had the fry up which he said was perfect. Service was excellent as usual

    Starters were nice but a little small on portion. The steak for main was ok but we were expecting a little more from a chateaubriand and there was not much sauce. Sides were lacking other than the chips which were the stand out. Desserts were diabolical, the fig cake had Camembert on top which was an odd choice and didn’t work at all. The service was great but overall very pricey for the experience offered.

    Went for my birthday and managed to get an early table at 6pm. Which was actually great as we were the first people there. We had vegan and veggie options, all delicious and beautifully presented. Lovely friendly and attentive service without being overbearing. Nice wine selection and I appreciated that also being marked vegan. Very nice cosy atmosphere too.

    The food was lovely, ambiance ruined by a couple next to us playing videos on their phone loudly. Also when mains were given to us they were given wrongly and with out any discussion from the waitress, it was very disappointing. Sadly we felt this was rude and didn’t meet our expectations.
