Excellent food and outstanding service

Staying at the Cheshire Cat, we had Dinner on Thursday 19th. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Menu has good selection to choose from. Food arrived promptly and was really well prepared. Good value for money as well. Highly recommended if you are staying in or around Chester.

Chips were lukewarm and the steak in the steak pie was tough, not cooked well enough (stewing steak needs to be stewed). All three of us were disappointed with the food. Good service and nice ale.

Went here last weekend for Sunday lunch. It was quite busy and we had booked, but there were tables available. As a party of five, we were given a table for four with the fifth person (me!) sitting on the end of the table. This meant that I was knocked by other diners and waiters passing by throughout the meal.... More

Place was a bit drafty despite fires being lit. We were a long way from fire. Food was ok. We had chicken pie but the pie was only just warm and the peas and chips were cold so both meals went back. We were brought out two fresh meals which were both hot the second time. Pie was pleasant enough... More

We ate and stayed here for my Uncle's 80th Birthday. From the minute we arrived the staff looked after our party. The speakers where we dined were unplugged at their suggestion, as my uncle is hard of hearing and the door to the side of our table was locked to prevent in coming traffic and cold chills. Nothing was too... More

We booked a Sunday lunch 1/02/15 for four at the Cheshire Cat Christleton near Chester as a special treat. We knew it was going to be busy and good choice to book in advance as it was packed. Good parking available right next to canal and tow path which would be lovely in the summer for walks. We were seated... More

We ate here on a Sunday night and despite there being a lot of customers the staff coped very well and were really friendly and attentive, the food was great I would certainly recommend eating here and booking would be advised.
