Great restaurant

3rd visit, had been twice for lunch and enjoyed so thought we'd try the evening menu. We weren't disappointed. Excellent food, nicely presented. The service is good. We went on a Saturday and had booked, which I'd recommend as it was pretty full.

I think its hard to find a restaurant thats reasonably priced with such great food and personal service, although it was a busy Saturday evening the staff took great care of my party of 4, and the food was presented to us quickly and very hot! i couldn't find a single thing to fault and will certainly be heading back...

I came here yesterday for lunch with a group of female friends. They have a lovely decked seating area outside and the overall decor inside was tastefully done. The food was beautifully presented and the service was brilliant. The staff working there were pleasant and polite. We could not fault it. Highly recommend a visit, you will not be disappointed!...

Under new management since late 2014, we'd heard good things about The Millstone. Visiting the UK from abroad (we're from here but currently working and living abroad) we took the in-laws out for dinner. The menu isn't the most extensive but changes regularly and you'd have to be a very fussy eater not to find some dishes you like. The... More

I am from the fylde coast... I spend a lot of time in the Chester area for work and came across this lovely restaurant just after Christmas... Since then I have come back several times the food is fantastic and the service always spot on. As far as the review below holding a card is pretty standard for most restaurants/bars... More

The address might call it Chester but The Millstone is in Pen y Ffordd in North Wales and whichever route you take through beautiful Welsh countryside it will bring you to this excellent pub. Immaculately presented throughout ,with loos worthy of any five star hotel anywhere, it is comfortable and welcoming. An excellent menu offers quality food and every course... More

First went here not long after it had reopened with some friends to try it out and was pleasantly shocked how amazing the food was. Been going there ever since as it's nice to have somewhere that does tasty home cooked food nearby! Staff have been really friendly on all visits, the interior is decorated to a high standard and...

Booked a meal here to celebrate a birthday. Was very impressed. Food was excellent with a good choice. The quality and presentation could not be faulted. We were a party of five and each one enjoyed their meal. I thought the decor was really nice and all the staff were friendly and attentive. I had never heard of it before... More
