We’ve been to sticky walnut a few times and it’s never disappointed. The staff are very attentive and friendly. Food was amazing and the restaurant felt very safe with all the Covid measures in place. Would definitely recommend Sticky walnut

We have been to Sticky lots of times over the years but particularly enjoyed this visit. My daughter has become dairy free and was delighted to be offered a whole dairy free menu together with items on the main menu which could be adjusted for her. The service was friendly and efficient with all staff wearing face masks. The food was as delicious as ever and we all felt extremely full after 3 courses.

Fabulous food, great ambience and efficient and friendly service. Great flavour combinations and the sticky walnuts are amazing! We were made to feel so welcome, my husband was rewarded with a Happy Birthday decorated plate with two chocolates which was a very nice touch. Loved our food and can highly recommend this delightful restaurant x x

Fantastic service provided by all staff, made us feel very welcome. The food was phenomenal, each course better than the last with a lovely wine selection available by the glass and bottle. Will be visiting again to try out the bistro menu sometime soon as it looks like incredible value.

Exquisite food with very attentive staff. Catered with a specific vegan menu which isn’t advertised on the website which was a nice little surprise - always good to see restaurants acknowledging different dietary requirements.

Food was well cooked and well received by all guests in our party and we would definitely dine there again.

Love, love, love this place. We booked based on reviews and recommendations and we were so glad we did. From the moment we arrived the service was unbeatable; our waiter was warm, friendly, knowledgeable, happy and eager to make sure we had the best experience. The food was utterly delicious and the wine pairings were perfect. We will definitely be back. Thank you :-)

A great stop off for lunch on our way to a weekend away in Wales. The food and service were excellent. Very nice that a wine pairing was recommended for each dish too. Sadly was too full for dessert but I’m still dreaming about my cod dish.

Return to this special place in these difficult times lived up to all our expectations and they are to be congratulated for the measures put in place to make you feel safe throughout your visit.
Usual attention to detail paid by our waitress and as always the food was exceptional with excellent choice available from both the set lunch and main menu.
We were fortunate to be able to secure Elite at Home during lockdown which kept us reminded of the quality these guys produce however when it’s cooked for you it’s far easier 😊
Well done to everyone who kept this going throughout lockdown but it really was good to be back in this gem of a restaurant

Fantastic meal and memorable experience-would I go again? Absolutely 👍 however.... at £112 for two people with a couple of drinks !! Ouch - compared with Next Door in Frodsham this sadly doesn’t compete- better food and much less expensive, but same excellent experience

Sensationally tasty, unpretentious food. It’s a nice place with simple decor and a surprisingly spacious layout for a small building. The hard working staff may never stop, but there’s always time for a friendly chat. This was my first time at Sticky and already booked my return visit.

Been looking forward to eating here for ages. The cocktails and bread to start were perfectly executed. The structure of the bread crumb was amazing too. Lots of big bubbles and a nice chew to it. The salt glazed top was the best bit.

The octopus starter was great and the chick peas had the right amount of crunch still to them, and the octopus was tender.

The lamb dish was the highlight of the night though. Cooked to perfection and the onion tarte fine was a lovely accompaniment. The lamb sauce would have been just as lovely served on a dirty shoe it was that good.

Great service and a nice chocolate treat with the bill. Thanks SW team!

We had a fantastic dining experience at Sticky Walnut last Saturday! The food was outstanding, absolutely delicious with good portion sizes (I am still dreaming of that fantastic braised feather blade of beef!), and nicely presented. Staff were very friendly and upbeat, and the atmosphere was relaxed. The whole experience could not have been better, and we will definitely be back!

I booked For my husbands birthday because my friends had been and raved about the food and wanted somewhere special to eat. We were not disappointed at all the food and the whole experience was amazing. The food was that good my husband informed the waitress that he was ‘sad’ because he had finished his starter of pate and there was nothing left!
This is the kind of place that I will definitely book again and can’t believe that I’ve never been before!
I also love the idea of the ‘invisible chips’ which are on the extras bit of the menu, £4.00 which goes to charity.
Amazing food served by amazing staff in an amazing hide gem.
You need to eat here, if you don’t your missing out

Very well organised friendly staff that made dining there a pleasure.
The food was top class with thought and attention given to each dish even the sides.
We ate early from the 3 choice menu but easily found choices we liked. The value for money on this menu is outstanding.
We would also be happy to pay for the later evening menu.
Restaurants in the south would be appreciated.
