You often seek a place where you can eat a quality meal at reasonable costs with good service and pleasant location and surroundings & yesterday we definitely found it. Our birthday party coincided with the Wednesday steak night, however 3 of our party had other enjoyable meals. Great service from the head waiter and really tasty starters mains and desserts....

I came to this restaurant by recommendation with my family and was instantly impressed by the beautiful views, we were greeted by friendly staff who were attentive all evening. The food was brilliant, well cooked and excellent value for money. It was a busy summers evening when I vistited and the speed of the service did not slip due to... More

After visiting the Chester fields a number of times im afraid to say my opinion continues to go down! Had a table booked, arived at the bar and no one seemed in any hurry to serve us. After we had placed our drinks order, the server on the bar proceeded to serve a staff member who was sat at the... More

Dear Jamie B, Thank you for taking the time to visit the restaurant (several times) and not saying anything on the day, going home, signing up for your first review and writing your unsubstantiated comments. Saying a drinking is watered down in writing is not the most sensible thing to do and it's a shame you didn't mention it on... More

I came here today for family get together and it was just wonderful. Waitress was lovely, bartender full of the banter and the surroundings are stunning. Food as good as ever with something for all of us! My 8yr old son has just declared himself a veggie so the team altered a dish for him, which was a nice touch... More

We were recommended your restaurant by some friends who frequent your restaurant on a regular basis and up until now have not had much opportunity to go. Last night we decided to pay you a visit on the spur of the moment and jolly glad that we did! My son who ate with us ordered your Fat Cow Burger which... More

We went for the first time last week and I won't be in a hurry to go back. Really nice building and lovely views, if you don't mind being attacked by dozens of wasps the whole time. I had to actually ask the waiter if we could order after being sat there for 25 minutes. The food was expensive and... More

Dear Laura0401, Thanks for taking the time to write this review although it would have been more appropriate to have asked for a manager on the day. There is no record of any complaint made on the day you dined which strikes me as a little odd. If you check out the following web address you will see that any... More

This is a good restaurant if you are a meat eater. I eat fish but they had run out of my choice on the menu. I don't like prawns and it was King Prawn Linguine at £11 with a vegetarian option. I chose the vegetarian option lingine. It was tasteless, there were very few vegatables in it, maybe one green... More

Dear Toddy66, Thanks for posting your review on TA. It's as good to hear the bad reviews as well as the good ones. No business can move forward if it doesn't listen to feedback. I apologise fdor the poor vegetarian dish. I'm not sure which day you were dining but i'd imagine it was fairly busy if we had sold... More

When I called to book a table for my Mum's birthday, I was told that it was the 50% evening, which was good in terms of my wallet, but It made me a little concerned about the ability to provide good food consistently. However, I needn't have worried, the food was absolutely wonderful! All four of us had a lovely... More

Came for Sunday lunch. Food wasn't that hot and just average. Nice building and a mix of very good and very poor staff. Pity as had heard good things about the place

Dear Devondevonians, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience when you visited us. Please judge us by what you heard and not by what you had. During these busy Summer months, like most restaurants, we have to employ students to help with the volume and this may be why you mention some good, some bad. No excuse for tepid meals... More

We have been here a number of times and never had a problem before, however this time we did. As the title says two of us ordered the pie dish which when it arrived looked lovely however the filling was barely warm and the pastry base cold. We tried to bring this to the attention of our waitress but she... More

Dear DaveD, Thanks for posting your feedback. I apologise sincerely for the temperature of the pies and especially for the way you say the complaint was dealt with.
