Tucked away in Hoole Village, in a very quaint little spot. Cosy, lovely staff, great service and amazing food. Been 5 times now, taking loads of friends who all love it too.

So many people have raved about this restaurant that we decided to give it a try. The staff were welcoming, the decor inviting but I found the food quite bland and really nothing out of the ordinary. I'd expected something really special but was disappointed. The price for 2 courses with only one soft drink and coffee was over £30.The... More

We were taken over to this restaurant by two friends living locally. Local is a word that I would happily associate with this unassuming restaurant in a neighbourhood full of independent, interesting businesses. The decor makes you feel relaxed instantly and the service is a mix of professional and laid back ( it works beautifully). Good selection of dishes on... More

Visited with friends on a Friday evening. The compact building makes it feel cosy without being squashed in. The service was excellent and waitresses very attentive. All the food courses were superb. Could not be faulted.

Finally managed to get to the Sticky Walnut , not sure why it took so long. Please remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment. We tried a few months ago on a wet Tuesday night but it was still full then. The food has to be THE best in Chester, every mouthful was equally good, no complaints at all... More
