A small and cosy restaurant away from the city centre; well worth making the effort to visit. The staff were welcoming and the service was friendly throughout our meal. The food is impressive with some interesting choices (I could not pluck up courage to try the calves brain....). I went for the venison and my wife the Hake. Both meals... More

We went here for Saturday lunch after a recommendation and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food simple, elegant and delicious. Just the right quantities. Only complain was it was a little noisy, but there was a large table next to us. Beer choice was a little limited and the wines quite expensive. But I would... More

I was pleasantly surprised and impressed by this unassuming small and cosy space on Hoole's high street. The decor is simple, cosy, and unpretentious with a menu that is simply delicious and unpretentious. A good selection of meat, fish and vegetarian options. No flowery descriptions that fall short of expectation here, just straightforward and equally straightforward delicious. Did I say... More

My wife and I dined here a few days ago for lunch. We received a friendly welcome and were seated instantly at our table. The interior was lovely and warm (so nice on a cold day in Feb). On the whole, the food and wine was very good - extremely tasty food, especially the unique cheesecake dessert. I had lamb... More

This little Gem of a restaurant really needs to be on your "to go to" list. It offers delicious food, great service and a great atmosphere. If your a visitor to the area its only a mile or so from Chester City Centre in the popular area of Hoole (where I'm fortunate to live). It won't break the bank and... More

I have eaten at Sticky on several occasions and have never been disappointed.... The Sunday lunch is incredible value and always impeccable. The a la carte menu is always varied and cooked to perfection. While the food is the attraction the service and atmosphere keep you coming back. It is small so book in advance but it's absolutely worth the... More
