We went to the Chester Fields for an evening meal with the family for the first time. We reserved a table for 7.30pm and were shown to a nice table promptly. The staff were very attentive and would check that we had sufficient drinks at our table. There is a good selection of choices on the menu including steak dishes.... More

family get together. Atmosphere and welcome good. Of 3, meals, The Beef Shin was a very small portion for price with just mash and 1 carrot slice - also lacked a bit of seasoning - still hungry at the end ! Salmon was nice flavour, but again a small portion with the veg. The 10oz gammon was huge and really... More

I visited, with friends, for lunch and have to say that the staff were very pleasant and helpful - almost too attentive as there are so many times you can say 'fine' when being asked for the umpteenth time if 'everything is ok'! - but better that than being ignored. We all chose from the set lunch menu - £11... More

From walking in the door we are always greeted with a lovely warm welcome. I wouldn't say we visit the Chester Fields that regularly, but the bar man always recognises me as loving my G&T and goes out of his way to rustle me up something different. Last weekend it was the beautiful Ophir G&T garnished with mint and lime.... More

The Spicy Burger was very dry and seemed to be lacking the chilli chutney which was listed on the on the menu. My sons Fish and Chips were cool, but when we told our server they were changed immediately. I think the evening we visited it was exceptionally busy and the kitchen was struggling to cope. We've always had great... More

First off from our experience I really don't understand the negative comments....but obviously no-one is perfect 100% of the time.... Our experience was great, very warm and welcoming staff all round, food really tasty, particularly my pork belly 'special' starter. Good selection of cask ales and wines. Generally really good experience. If to be really picky the lovely staff were... More

Lovely pub, great decor and warm welcome. Staff were friendly and attentive. Had an incredible goats cheese starter followed by a burger which was one of the best I've had in a long time! Great selection of beer. Would recommend highly! Worth travelling out to visit.

I dined here on the 19th Aug 2014. It was 50% off the menu, really great value. The food is great and the service is fab. The only niggle I had was the lamb I had, it was too fatty. My sister had the same dish and had no complaints. We also had dessert, sticky toffee pudding... was delicious. I... More

I came with a group of girlfriends, we ordered dishes with sauté potatoes, we all received new potatoes of some uncooked description, they decided to replace the potatoes with French fries which came frozen and uncooked, how can a chef send out uncooked fries???? The waiter did not even bother to come and tell us what the chefs comments were!!!... More

Dear Anne W, Thank you for posting your 2nd review on TA! I'm fully aware of the situation with your table when you dined with us last. I have to say though that i'm getting very mixed messages from your report, the other guests at your table and my own management team. Firstly, the potatoes WERE sauteed. I think it's... More
