Sunday lunch

Visited at 630 on Sunday. Had a turkey roast which was exceptional. Service was ok but it appeared they had run out of pork dinners along with beef pies- the man next table along was not happy.

Two night stay at this put/hotel - previous experience was relatively positive for the accommodation though not as good for the food. The accommodation is ok, a bit small and quite noisy from neighbours - bed clean and okay, and bathroom clean. Ate in the restaurant second night, steak was overcooked and burnt - even the waitress thought so -... More

The best thing about the Chester Cat is the garden where there are smart tables with lovely hanging baskets. Aside from that, service is fairly poor - there's no offer to help carry drinks out to your garden table, and I had to go back into the bar several times to ask for service and other things that we needed...

This was my third visit to the Cheshire Cat and each time I have loved the experience. This time it was light lunch with my husband. We opted for the meat platter to share. The meaty sausages and ribs were accompanied by a warm piccalilli pork pie, crackling and a coleslaw type salad garnish. Everything was expertly cooked and served... More

Overnight stay after a day at the races. Lovely place. Room was also very nice. We stayed in the annex. Lovely setting and lots of outdoor seating. Peter the manager was especially helpful. Would definitely return. If I was to find fault my only complaint was paying £14 to upgrade from 2 continental breakfasts to 2 full English breakfasts. Thought... More

Lovely surroundings, situated on the edge of the river. The gardens are very pleasant and the staff helpful and friendly. It's a really nice place to while away some time in the sun while watching the canal boats drift by.
