Perfect

We tried the beef fillet steak, can only say that it was the best steak we have tried for a long time. PERFECT. Nice and friendly staff, hopefully coming back there soon

We recently visited 1539 for a friends birthday and I have to say it was one of the best meals I've experienced in Chester. The service was great and the food amazing which made the evening perfect. I will definitely be going back to 1539 again.

We attended for a friends 30th and the staff made us all enjoy ourselves with their happy smiley faces and perfect service. The three course meal we had the starter was my favourite. I wasn't expecting it to be as perfect as it was. Lovely hidden gem, would be perfect in the summer drinking cocktails on the terrace whilst overlooking... More

The menu was very good, plenty of choice and the wine list quite extensive. Service was excellent attentive but not too pushy. We were in no hurry. The... More

The food was exceptional. We had the three course group menu at £28.50 pp. The service was very good and food arrived quickly, hot and well... More
