In search for lunch and needing to get out of the rain we ended up in here on a day trip to chester. The inside has an elegant but rustic feel and the customer service was excellent. The food was amazing. I would recommend Joseph Benjamin and i would definitely go back.

On a friends recommendation we booked table for 6 after a day at Chester races. The staff from booking, to follow up confirmation, on arrival, during service and booking us a taxi was fantastic. Very rarely these days do you find polite attentive staff with knowledge of their menu so much so that it really stands out at this restaurant.... More

Tried this place for the first time last night and will definitely return! It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted to eat somewhere special. Good job we'd booked, as the place was really busy, surprising for a Thursday night in town. The menu is innovative but limited and changes daily, I think. I started with sweetcorn and ginger soup...

Heard a lot of good things about this place and I was not disappointed. Ate pigeon breast starter, hake served with risotto and fruit cake and Stilton. Portions all on the small side but the whole meal was adequate and fantastically tasty. We both had three courses and a few drinks and the bill was about £70. Service attentive without... More

I visited here 6th June for the first time and have to say it's one of the best restaurants in Chester. We ordered the queen olives, followed by pork belly/hake and sorbet to finish. All delicious! We were even running a little late but the staff were friendly and welcoming on arrival. Definitely worth paying a little more and having... More

A great little restaurant with excellent food, friendly service and reasonable prices. Not on my usual route around Chester, I came across this restaurant on TripAdvisor when looking for somewhere different to go with friends for my birthday. An excellent choice. I really like a small menu, fairly limited choice but that suggests to me good quality produce cooked freshly.... More

We went to Portas, the Tapas bar next door last time we were in Chester and liked the look of this place. We were not disappointed. Food & drink were both great and a meal for two , 2 courses and wine came to less than £90. Delicious food, good service- highly recommended.

This food was probably the tastiest food I've ever eaten... Need I say more? Go to this place for a special occasion and to eat amazing food. I will definitely be returning. 10/10.

We visited JB today for Mum's birthday lunch and it was fantastic. It's not the first time we've been but it was so good I felt the need to write a review. It is worth mentioning the understated interior and excellent service (attentive but informal and not overbearing) but the food was the star and rightly so. There were 8... More
