Great food but the route to toilets needs attention

Despite living in Chester for many years I never set foot in Katie's Tea Rooms. However when we wanted to find a good restaurant to dine with friends who were visiting us we liked the look of the menu & prices at MD's.

Like everything else in Chester this building appeared very old and charming. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and shown to a table in the front window. Service was good and the waiting staff were cheerful and friendly. I had the pork and my husband had the chicken served with fresh vegetables. Everything was beautifully cooked. Thoroughly recommend.

The food here was delicious. we had Calamari and Prawns to Start and the Venison as our main. The Venison was cooked perfectly and came with a lovely Medeira sauce. It was very quiet for a Friday night but with food like this I'm not sure why. My husband was so impressed with his Venison he asked the chef over... More

Visited this lovely cafe on Easter Sunday morning after a visit to the Cathedral and stroll around the shops. It really was a lovely little place and the food was very good for the price. The whole ambience, however, was spoiled by the loud manner in which the young lady in charge was directing her staff. It was clear that... More

Having seen this restaurant looking busy as Katie's Tea Room during the day and then phoning around a few places to try and get in that Saturday night with no success, we decided to try MD's. Now we know why there was no one in it hardly. Although the staff were very friendly and helpful, to sum it up the... More

Vegetables cooked just right aldente, and boiled potatoes good. Wines good and reasonable price. Tastecard gives bogoff, but if you eat here wed/thurs they offer two for one also. This... More

We have been here a few times and have never been disappointed. Reasonable menu selection and is good value. Good service, tasty, quality food and a reasonable selection of wines.... More

We had finished shopping and wanted a meal before we returned to our hotel, not much to look at from the outside as it is a tearoom during the day. The menu was very good, specials were special and the service was excellent. The portions were plentiful and we shared a starter which was a good move as it would... More
