Great little place to stop for a bite. Nice food, nice people, tidy surroundings. I have eaten here with my husband and my friends several times and have never been disappointed.

The Stretch is a tidy little roadside diner in the village of Chester. I have stopped there several times with my wife and have never been disappointed. Staff is friendly, food is reasonably priced, home-style fare with great home-baked pie for desert.

Excellent fish & chips. Fun retro 50s ambiance inside. The exterior is unfortunately bland, but you forget all about the outside once you get inside. Worth the trip.

The Stretch diner is not much to look at and you will not find candelabras with soft music and equally soft lighting. I gave this restaurant a very good rating simply for the fact that the food is great. It's a homely place to eat,...More
