Happened to be visiting Chester and thought that we could walk in and get a table here. We were wrong, but they managed to fit us in the next night as long as they could have the table back by 8.00, this suited us as we had children. The food was amazing, I had to try everyone's, because it was... More

Sticky Walnut has been on my list of 'must try' places for a long time, like many others I became aware of the restaurant through its twitter presence and I've enjoyed keeping an eye on its ever changing menu. As lots of people whose opinions I respect had raved about the place I had high hopes, and was so pleased... More

This restaurant is exactly what it says on the tin. A very good local bistro serving very good food without any of the pretentiousness. There isn’t much more to say. The food is great, the service was very friendly and the whole atmosphere was great. Every town/village/city should have restaurants like this. It is a shame that this isn’t the... More

We've been to Sticky a few times for lunch and always loved it. Best restaurant in the Chester area. The Sunday lunch is great value and portion sizes not so huge that there's no room for pud! On the last visit I had salmon starter followed by lamb, then parkin, all so delicious I wanted to lick the plates. Hope... More

I took my family out for a celebratory meal to the Sticky Walnut on the advice of 'trip advisor' ratings. We were all sadly disappointed beyond belief. The food to be honest was very very overpriced for what was placed on our plate and the staff were very rude. I understand that they were very busy but that was no... More

All the wonderful things said about this place in previous reviews are true. This is a tremendous restaurant that services fantastic food. It may be a little expensive but given the quality it gives great value for money; if it was located in London (and thank goodness it is not!) it would cost four times as much. Well done the... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor, l was looking forward to my lunch at the Sticky Walnut. The restaurant is small downstairs with only 3 tables, however it is bright and airy. Both waiters were knowledgable about the menu and were happy to chat as they were not too busy (Wednesday lunch). My shin of beef with Jerusalem artichoke... More

What a gem of a restaurant this is. Tucked away in a lovely busy street in the Hoole area of Chester this eatery deserves all the praise it gets. Set in what must have been a converted terraced house, (like many of the other properties in Charles Street) it has a very homely feel. Lovely, friendly, local staff, attentive but... More

My word - what did you just do ? One of the best meals I've eaten - with good company in non pretentious surroundings - my idea of dinner out ! Crispy lambs tongue ? Never tried it - amazing,swordfish carpaccio for Mrs T - superb. Last time I came I could not try the Chateaubriand but one of my... More
