The Chef’s Table is a small independent restaurant in the heart of Chester city centre, offering the best local produce in their seasonal and constantly changing menus.
They work very closely with all their suppliers but especially alongside a team of organic growers called The Natural Veg Men whom are situated 15 miles from the restaurant and allow the chefs to work with amazing produce that influences their menus.

At lunch they offer a smaller a la carte menu with an amazing offer of 2 courses for £18 and 3 course for £22, and then in the evening there is a full a la carte menu which offers a wide range of choice with lots of innovative original dishes using some of the best produce that is available to them.

This restaurant offers a relaxed fine dining atmosphere, where everything is set up to give the guest an unique dining experience.

Great meal! Before this visit we thought it had lost some its innovation but this week proved us wrong! In particularThe ‘Strange vegetables’ were really different and the Quail starter was superb with a really harmonious combination of flavours.
So glad to find that Chefs Table is still the best place in town!

Great food, great experience! The one thing I would suggest possibly looking into .... we had the sticky toffee ale pudding and thought the passion fruit sorbet was a little over powering for the toffee? It was still delicious though! Especially the soup!!

Was very pleased when I visited the restaurant in December but was disappointed on this occasion in my choice of rib eye steak. It was very ordinary, slightly chewey and overpriced. I realise the kitchen is very small but my jumper smelt of cooking after leaving the restaurant.

Chef's Table is the best restaurant in Chester. The food is superb and great value. We had the 3 course Sunday lunch, which is a bargain ar just £22. Service is always friendly and efficient. Highly recommended!

Birthday - service is polite but bought a bottle of wine, which was then taken away out of sight (hmmm) and then we had empty glasses for over 5mins before having to ask to top up. Table too small for it and no trim between tables.

Ingredients are just delicious, but the curry flavour was like a curry shop powder that overwhelmed the fish and scallop. Lamb was divine. Chic fondant to die for.
Building is a little too compact, being shoved against a wall or window with no gap makes you feel cramped, even a small gap few inches away would make it feel better, rather than your shoulder brushing the wall. Many people kind o turned their chairs to sit almost side on. It really is too cramped, hence you can't even keep your wine at the table.

Amazing lunch for my friend's 40th.
Food was OUTSTANDING. Was worried venue wouldn't be 'special' enough but the atmosphere of this small informal restaurant made it perfect. Bustling the whole time we were there. Staff lovely & just the right amount of attention without you feeling rushed. Menu was divine we all had a variety of the veey reasonably priced menu. Could not fault anything. We were a party of 4. We all had 3 course..wine & tea after our meal & bill was £141. Brilliant value for fantastically fresh seasonal food all made to order.

Only small thing is due to size of restaurant there ia not much space around the tables if you're a larger build & only 1 wc which is very snug. No space for prams!!

The main things food, value for money & service were 5 star. Have already recommended to friends.

This restaurant, for us, has been a ‘go to’ venue for some time. It truly is gorgeous. It doesn’t pride itself on fancy surroundings but what they offer in food, service and value is superb.

Visited for midweek lunch with friends. First time at this restaurant but it won’t be our last. Gorgeous and refined food. Service was excellent - friendly, professional, efficient. Place is v clean. Decor quite dull but exceptional food and service outweigh this tiny drawback.

We had such a good evening celebrating my sons 25th Birthday at The Chefs Table. Delicious food enjoyed by our mixed party of meat eaters and a gluten intolerant vegan! The whole place has a great vibey atmosphere and excellent service from the friendly staff. I'll definitely be returning for a date night and to have a second taste of the delicious tangerine sorbet.

We were fortunate enough to get a table the same day for dinner on a whim after deciding to head to Chester for the weekend. The restaurant is really central so walking from our hotel was easy, the food was brilliant really tasty (we had 3 courses and drinks) the waitresses really helpful and there was a really energetic vibe to the place. Would definitely recommend and will be going back in the future. Keep up the great work!

Found this lovely little restaurant on trip advisor and so glad we booked (busy even on a Wednesdays)
Gorgeous little restaurant. Service was 10/10
2 girls waitressing were so lovely. After finding out I was pregnant made me a delicious mocktail
Both me and my partner found the food absolutely stunning (as a meat eater the vegetarian cauliflower starter was incredible) and the chef took time to talk to my partner about the food.

Reasonably priced. Could not recommend enough 10/10 x

My mum and myself had lunch at the Chefs table. The service was superb from the very beginning till the end. We didn't need to wait long for the food to arrive after we made our choices. The presentation was beautiful and the flavours were very well put together. I am not a expert but I would recommend it to anyone who wants a special lunch every now and then. Booking is essential but it is very easily made online. We had a fabulous time. Thank you for everyone working there!
