Had not booked but were welcomed and quickly seated. Service was excellent as was the food and wine. As it was a Wednesday night we also benefitted as all food was 2 for 1 which was an added bonus! Very friendly and attentive staff and a good meal at an excellent price.

Went on a Wednesday night during a midweek break to Chester, lovely place with a relaxing atmosphere, was very, very pleased with our choice ! met with a friendly, welcoming smile and the service was top quality all evening. 2-4-1 on starters and mains with plenty of choice and portion sizes meant we definitely got value for money. will definitely...

Tried MD's on a Friday night with the Gourmet Card offer of 2-4-1 on 3courses. Thank goodness for that as would not have been happy with full price! Service was good with friendly staff. Starter of smoked haddock fish cake was small, tasteless and mostly mashed potato. Main of chicken with bacon and cheese with barbecue sauce , chips and... More

Walked in off the street on a Wednesday night after seeing the 2-1 offer. We were met with a smile and served with drinks quickly. We both had rump steak which was the best we have had out in a while. The steak came with chips, mushrooms, tomatoes and a good side salad and we ordered a peppercorn and diane... More

My wife and I walked in of the street on a Friday night unbooked and found the restaurant only half full Although you couldn't fault the staff serving you as they were very friendly and attentive I do wonder if the chef out the back was as keen because the food was average and for what it was, the prices...

We were visiting our daughter at Chester university myself, husband and mother in law, having been to Md's before, and having a lovely meal, we booked in advance (as this was back in December) on arriving in the restaurant at 7.30pm - we were mortified to find we were the only four people in the restaurant - after about 10...

Cant understand bad revs unless we got a good night. Bruschetta to share delicious, very tasty, loaded with fresh tomato pieces, herbs, a little olive oil and garlic. Have eaten hundreds of these and this was one of the better ones. Good value too. My main was pan fried chicken, baby onions and very nice fresh sauce clearly done in... More

Stumbled upon the restaurant, having previously visited the lovely tearoom. Menu looked OK from the outside so thought we'd try it. It's a shame there isn't an option to order a starter and then decide if you'll risk a main course! The bruschetta was tasteless just chopped tomatoes on toast, devoid of seasoning, the olives were minuscule and devoid of... More

After attending Chester races we were struggling to find somewhere for tea that wasn't booked up, stumbled across this place, who were full downstairs but offered us a table for 10 upstairs. The staff were excellent, friendly and precise. All our food came correctly, well cooked and everyone ate up with all empty plates. Found the upstairs atmosphere a little... More

I hate giving bad reviews but as with a previous review I feel obliged to warn others. The menu was extensive but feel they would be better perfecting a few dishes than offering so many and delivering poor quality. The staff were pleasant and tried hard but the food was poor. My starter was disappointing, I hoped my main would... More
