Always Good Food

We have been going to the Sticky Walnut pretty much since it opened, and have never had a bad meal here. It is rightly one-off the top restaurants in Chester and at one time was way ahead of the pack. It has probably been responsible for bringing this type of dining experience to the city and now... read more

The Sticky Walnut is hands down the best meal I had in the UK, while on a 2 week journey between Scotland, England and Wales. My family and I are total foodies, one of the most important parts of traveling is to eat exciting and delicious food...and this place just nailed it! There were 6 of us and we all... More

We visited the Sticky Walnut on the recommendation of a cousin and met there for dinner in March. We really enjoyed it and mentioned it to some other friends. The wife said she would like us to go to celebrate her 65th birthday in July - so we have just been back. I was a bit worried that it might... More

Visited here for lunch recently. Menu was small but some nice choices. I went for the pate to start which was very tasty and the smoothest pate I have ever tasted! Then I had the chicken Caesar salad, which was delicious. My husband had the shin beef for his main which simply fell off the bone and was in a... More

We had been wanting to try here for a long time, and expectations were high but were actually exceeded...the whole experience was just faultless. To start with we had the ravioli and the gazpacho - both delicious. Then we had the beef shin - simply stunning- and fish (beautiful and light), and only I could manage dessert - chocolate ganache...

From the trip advisor reviews we had great expectations for our meal last weekend. Obviously very popular, as tables were turning over with much speed but all four of us were underwhelmed. A small menu, and a couple of us found the starter choice limiting. I was expecting really flavoursome food from reading the menu, but sadly the food lacked... More

I dined at the sticky walnut on 16.7.15 for a 3rd time- alas I was placed by the window which meant I could clearly see the mouse traps under the Stairs - very off putting - I voiced my concerns to ' the assistant manager' she advised " oh don't worry they don't work" - by now I was very... More

Made reservations, a must. We were seated upstairs, the place has only 10 or 12 tables. No specials, but menu has wide choices. Great cocktails, my wife had the Sticky Cosmos and loved it. The starters are great, and the mains are outstanding. Service is excellent, I don't know how they go up and down the stairs all night. Desserts... More
