Visit spoiled by loud staff

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... read more

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

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

By day this is known as Katie's Tea Rooms (we have not used during the day) but between Wednesday and Saturday it is open in the evening as a restaurant. 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

From the moment we arrived until we left we were greeted by very friendly staff who couldn't have helped any more than they did. The food was excellent, my venison in particular was so good and myself and husband and two friends enjoyed our experience thoroughly. Will definitely go again next time we are in Chester. Will (and have already)... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat and didn't fancy gastro pubs or loud music. Spotted that Katies tearooms were open and realised they became md's after 5 o'clock. The menu looked very good so decided to give it a try. Very friendly staff, excellent wine list to go with the food and what more could you want. Homemade soup... More
