Visited after reading reviews here and was disappointed by poor quality food and expensive prices. Baguette was very pale and had the consistency of that part-baked supermarket bread you bake at home. Chocolate mousse was quite bland. Coffee was very good though. I found that the radio blaring out chat and news detracted from the ambience. Background music is fine... More

You wont go wrong at Zugers with tasty food and a great selection of cakes and drinks. Rather pricey for what it is but nonetheless a great place to visit.

We found this to be a very friendly restaurant. We had to wait a little while for our lunch but they were very busy. The food was good and well presented. It's obviously very popular because there was a queue for tables so patience my be required.

On a wet Friday lunch time in Chester we easily found Zugers near to the main post office. It was recommended to us and described as a nice tearoom to have lunch. It was much more than just a tearoom and the lunchtime menu included a range of interesting Swiss dishes that far surpassed the usual midday offerings elsewhere. I... More

Zugers is always busy and as usual we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table but we were not going to go anywhere else as I had decided that I must try the open ham sandwich which I had seen someone eating on a previous visit. It did not disappoint. The ham was delicious, served on walnut bread... More

Not far from the Roman amphitheatre and a couple of doors away from Pizza Express. Enjoyed lunch here recently. We must have timed it well as we did not need to queue for too long. The queue quickly built up while we were there though. The menu has a Swiss influence. Service was prompt and friendly. Nice ambience, a busy... More

We were early for our hotel check-in so we came into Zugers as it was just around the corner. I fancied the 'breakfast special' as advertised on the blackboard in the front window but apparently this sign should have been taken down. The waitress kindly said she would ask the chef as it wasn't busy, and he obliged. It was... More

We called in here for lunch on a Saturday in September. LOCATION: At the bottom end of St John Street, close to the Roman amphitheatre and a short walk down to the the River Dee and boat trips.
