About The Chefs Table

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.

I booked for last Monday night for my wife and our friends as we always enjoy the fine dining offered by Chefs table with its informal relaxed atmosphere. Why a Monday night at 7pm, well thats one of the few slots available last week and was well worth being flexible, to change our dining night to experience the best food in the area. We were not disappointed, menu great, standard, exceptionally high, very enjoyable, a memorable dining experience.
Chefs Table continues to excel.

Our second visit to Chefs Table for our joint birthday celebration. The food was, again, eye wateringly good. We didn’t want any of our dishes to end. Lovely, pleasant staff who offer to explain the elements of each dish to diners when serving. The restaurant is small enough to feel intimate and private. Open kitchen adds drama. Delightful & a well-deserved 5 stars!

Our last meal at The Chef's Table had been slightly disappointing - a bit over elaborate with complex ingredients not always matching. This meal was right back on the form we've experienced before - more straightforward, with great flavours, textures and presentation and some of the best food we've eaten there. Great stuff - keep it up in 2018 - but when you revamp the restaurant, please change the art display!

We went for Christmas lunch on a very cold day. The food was beautiful and the service was really friendly. Only problem with going on cold weather is whenever the door opens (which is a lot) , a draught comes in but that's just a minor niggle. Excellent!
