Our waitress was so professional, attentive and paid real attention to detail. The meal was lovely and the cocktails v Moorish! The manager was a lovely guy who... More

This place is opposite (and under the same ownership) Upstairs at the Grill, another fantastic establishment! A lovely little restaurant with really great service. The burger with the duck egg is amazing, would highly recommend it!

Visited bar lounge a couple of times before. But this had to be far the best. Simon, who served us was very complimentary and served us all evening. Can't fault him or the choice of cocktails he gave us. He served me and my boyfriend, and I must admit his choice was perfect. Credit to him and the team.

This is one of Chester's staple bars and ever since I've lived in Chester my friends and I always seem to gravitate back here for catch up's. Great extensive list of drinks and good atmosphere, the outside area's lovely too. They do a full restaurant menu but I do find the vegetarian options lacking so usually just have snacks. Really...

Only downside to the evening was the competition between the loud music in the bar and the loud music in the restaurant, might have been okay if the same songs were being played simultaneously! Food and service first rate.

By far the best bar in Chester, a great selection of drinks at reasonable prices but what really makes it special is the service. You can not fault it. Simon and Sam looked after our party and they were second to none.
