My partner and I were lucky to get a table here on a Saturday lunchtime ahead of a bit of shopping in Chester. Not having booked, they were able to fit us in ahead of a later booking. Wanting a light lunch, we both had sandwiches - I had the field mushroom, onion and Taleggio cheese, whilst my partner had... More

We almost passed by, but a glimpse of the food through the window made us carry out a quick about turn, and what a good decision this turned out to be. We only wanted a quick lunch as we'd come quite a way and wanted to catch the shops before it got dark, so skipped the starters and went straight... More

Wonderful food, warm and friendly service in a relaxed and unpretentious setting. The restaurant was very busy and clearly popular with locals and visitors alike. The food and wine was great value for money. We will definitely return.

A small well furnished restaurant in Chester with really good food and atmosphere. The service was really pleasant and friendly and the prices reasonable. Well worth a visit.

Booking is advised for this popular restaurant in Chester city centre. Decent service and good food. Their burger is very good and there were several delicious sounding fish dishes on the menu. Menu not too extensive, with specials. Shared 2 puds between 5, a very rich chocolate tart.

Love this place, didn't even know it existed until some friends suggested it! The menu (although not extensive) was perfectly put together and everything was delicious. Make sure you book!

nothing very memorable about my meal. Very average for the price. Atmosphere just bordering on the pretentious side.

Visited with a friend for Saturday lunch. The service was friendly and attentive and the the atmosphere was buzzy. The food was gorgeous. We both had the steak bavette salad with pickled beetroot, blue cheese and walnuts. Amazing flavours! A side of wonderful chips( crispy outside and fluffy inside), a shared dessert of Affogato and a glass of good Malbec... More
