Amazing, innovative food. Chefs who are passionate about their craft, knowledgeable front of house staff. What’s not to love? Chef’s Table is our Number 1 restaurant.
If you appreciate good, local produce cooked perfectly, then book a table here.

Excellent choice of food and great value for money. The surf and turf was very tasty, lovely scallop with very tender belly pork and spicy chorizo. Lamp rump for main was pink and melted in your mouth with very complimentary accompaniments. Dessert was rich dark chocolate treat. Always have great food and service here.

My son tells me that they had the best meal they have had for a long time and that is quite a compliment as they are choosy foodies. They have promised me a meal with you if/when we can make it to Chester- we look forward with great anticipation.

Happy Christmas and the best possible 2021. Keep safe. Stay well and keep, when possinle, serving excellent food.

Excessive stereo noise causing much louder conversation levels.
Nauseating air and inadequate ventilation.
Service staff inexperienced showing little attention, working with bandaged hands, gripping cups near the rim etc.
Food presentation was the only positive.
Flavours clashed, poorly seasoned.
All vegan dishes “constructed” from the regular menu and basically just leaving out the meat.

Note: The entire experience was like being in a completely different restaurant compared to previous visits.

We won’t be going back.

Whoever has taken it over now we wish them well, but you have lost our enthusiasm entirely.

Exceptional food and service - the quality and taste of the food was outstanding - arguably Michelin quality. A jewel in Chesters crown - a true hidden gem.

Beautiful starter and main course and friendly staff. We were a bit disappointed in the dessert, a chocolate brownie which was more like a big slice of chocolate cake rather than a brownie. But overall a lovely meal.
