Good fussy food but expensive

The food was very well cooked but "fussy" in that there were los of bitty add-ons. This made it difficult for those of us with special diets that need to avoid some foods and restricted the choice. The portions were small and no bread was offered so one would have to order foccacia to have bread... read more

This place serves the best food in the area - there is really no reason to go into Chester, just pop to Hoole on the outskirts. The place is buzzing, busy and very efficient. The staff were fantastic, but it is the food that is truly outstanding. There is nothing pretentious about this place - it just does it's job... More

I'm always skeptical of places receiving rave reviews and truly horrific reviews. Do they get by on a "cool" reputation without delivering to those immune to the hype? Sticky Walnut is NOT one of these places. It IS an incredibly inviting comfortable environment to enjoy incredibly delicious food and drinks. The staff are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgable of the... More

For starters we had a roast beets salad, beef carpacio and gazpacho. Everything was beautifully presented and each ingredient delicious. A lovely mix of ingredients. For mains we had hake,... More

Still sat here enjoying my birthday meal but so mightily impressed I had to review straight away!! My father in law arranged a birthday cake created by the sticky walnut and no exaggeration it is the most delicious chocolate birthday cake (not really a cake) more of a torte with homemade honeycomb and served as a dessert with a gel,...

Absolutely loved the sticky walnut - by far the best service I have every received from any other restaurant! The food was so beautiful, compliments to the chef. Cannot wait to return and try some of the other dishes.

This restaurant was recommended by the owners of Edgar House, where we were staying for a few days. We knew they had very high standards because Edgar House is just wonderful. The Sticky Walnut showed they have equally high standards for dining and the restaurant was a fantastic experience. We went for dinner and had some of the best food... More

Could not fault anything at the Sticky Walnut. Lovely atmosphere and really welcoming. Our waiter was really informative and helpful. The food was superb and very good value for money. For two of us it was £125 for two starters, two mains and two puddings plus two cocktails and a bottle of Rioja reserva. We had a bottle of tap... More

We've never had a bad meal here. Yesterday we had delicious focaccia followed by breast of lamb with crispy skin and soft succulent meat with hummus, goat's cheese curd,green beans and grilled aubergines together with some Parmesan chips as a side dish. Our server and chef were extremely charming and I fully recommend this cosy restaurant.
