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.

We went to The Chef's Table after hearing a number a brilliant reviews and we were not disappointed. A small, simple layout with friendly staff meant we were comfortable with our table of two. They had a small but impressive selection of wines, and some lovely traditional cocktails, each with their own unique twist. My partner adored his dandelion negroni!

But above all was the food. We assumed it would be good following all the positive comments we'd heard, but the food was fantastic. The flavours that the chefs put together complimented each perfectly. I had the tomato soup to start and was concerned that I may have gone too basic, but it was the most divine tomato soup I've ever had.

We will definitely be returning and taking other people to show them. At 3 courses for £22, it can't be beat on value either!

I had not been for a while and to my relief all that I had remembered about The Chefs Table was still true. The high standard and quality of the food, the food presentation and varied menu was up to its usual superb standard. A delightful, excellent value lunch with charming, attentive service.

We had an excellent lunch with friends. The service was very good and welcoming.
The 3 course lunch menu was superb with all of us being more than happy with our individual choices. The food is prepared to a very high standard and compares well to any fine dining establishment and all achieved from a small kitchen and restaurant tucked away in Chestrr

We love this restaurant because we feel as if every dish matters and has been cared about. We are a family with mixed dietary requirements from vegan to carnivore and somewhere in between. More restaurants should recognise the need to cater for the diverse range who turn up in one group and don't necessarily want one of the party to have to take the token cheese substitute as a the only veggie offer. A great evening where the food and wine were the main event.

My first visit to the chef's table since moving to Chester 10 weeks ago.
It was my husband's birthday we were accompanied by a couple of friends.
The food was beautifully presented, staff attentive and welcoming.
I would highly recommend the chef's table and it certainly will not be my last visit!!

Food and service were fantastic as always. We have eaten here before, but it's difficult to get in as it is a small restaurant with a very good reputation. It's not cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for and I felt it was fair value for the quality of the food. There were a few families with young children in, which affects the ambience in a small restaurant, but it wasn't a big problem for us.

We visited the Chef’s Table after reading the excellent reviews. I have to say it was one of the best meals I have ever had. So many flavours on each plate. The serving staff were friendly and knowledgable and it was good to be able to see the chefs at work. When we visit Chester again this will be my first choice for dinning.

This restaurant is as close to perfection as you can get. The food is stunning, truly stunning. Aside from the feeling that it would benefit from bigger premises, the design maximises space ideally. The staff never rush you and are well informed on the menu and drinks. The relaxed atmosphere and ultra high quality food make for an amazing experience.
Ideal for couples and small groups

My second visit and even better than the first. The staff are first rate and Very knowledgable about the whole menu and wine list without being pretentious. Every single thing we ate and drank was beautiful, and we had two gluten free and one vegan eating and it was so nice to have such a big range of choices for all! Excellent place. Will be back.

Once again an absolutely gorgeous three course meal. Outstanding food which the waitresses explained fully when serving. Never disappointed dining here. Only point I would make is that it was a really hot day & only fans on in room no air con so would advise dress according to weather on the day. Already trying to schedule the next meal here, it really is truly outstanding.

We were given a voucher as a gift for chefs table, did struggle a bit to book a table (as it’s so popular). But, it was certainly worth the wait. The service is brilliant, friendly & welcoming & also knew about their food. We, as a couple eat out regular & the chefs table will definitely be returning. We have recommended this restaurant to friends & family after our visit.
