Really love visiting this place. Food is fresh and great value. Not skimpy on the portion sizes either. Good selection of food and drink and the staff are very friendly. We simply felt so welcome (and happily full upon leaving) Thank you!!

Dropped into this restaurant just after exiting the city walls on the northern side of Chester, and thought lunch was delicious. The highlights were the starter with cheese, Serrano ham, chutney, etc., and the pork chop.

Wasn't on the menu when we visited however as the menu changes and is seasonal it may well appear at some time. I'd give the restaurant a call to ask what they are currently offering.
