To add praise to what others have written about this superb restaurant would be mere repetition. I will limit myself to saying that I hope the management realise what a lovely, knowledgeable and hard-working team of people they have. Also, a rarity and a pleasure not to have the experience spoilt by obtrusive music. Thank you.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we strolled away from the Centre of Chester to this gem of a restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxed bistro style - plain pine tables and chairs but enhanced with quality tableware and interesting artwork. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgable about the menu. The dishes were well presented and utterly delicious. My husband... More

I feel sorry for Chef Usher, in a way. He serves great food, he's hilarious to follow on Twitter and is well regarded by the critics and review guides alike. As such, there's always bound to be a lot of hype surrounding SW, which inevitably heightens the expectations of its guests. But even with heightened expectations, my partner and I... More

When my daughter was born 18 years ago today, we lived here in Hoole, in a beautiful Victorian terrace on the street right behind the Sticky Walnut, long before its divine inception. Hoole even then was vibrant and full of character, so it seemed apt to return for her significant birthday; a rite of passage from childhood to adulthood not... More

Went for lunch on bank holiday Saturday with partner, mother in law to be and our 2 year old terror. Chester was heaving and this was a haven amongst all the chaos. We all enjoy eating out, and we all agreed this really is one of the best. Every course was superb and the service impeccable. Lamb rump the best... More
