Distinctly average. You basically pay for the service, which seemed unnatural and forced. I'd rather have some money off my meal than pay for some pre rehearsed speach about steaks. Even when we asked for a recommendation on the wine the guy asked "what are you leaning towards" and when we told him he said "okay, I will bring you... More

We came here on a Monday evening for a birthday celebration. Delicious cocktails, delicious steak and my boyfriend had the T-Bone, which left him defeated! The food was so tasty and filling that sadly we couldn't finish everything meaning no deserts for us! Would recommend to anyone looking for a faultless special meal, we will be back!

Was on business in Chester and visited this place on recomendation from my customer. Situated just a short walk from the Racecourse just inside the historic city walls first impression was good. Friendly professional welcome we had not booked and were offered seats for two at the end of the bar upstairs. Turns out it was a good place to... More

The food was excellent and the 'Hendrick's' G&T's were really nice. The things that let the restaurant down was, a strong smell of cooking drifted into the restaurant and our clothes carried the smell after we left and the service was just okay, not fantastic!

On our previous visits to the beautifully historic English city of Chester, we had not found this little gem - but we're glad we did this time! We were in Chester for a birthday treat for my wife and discovered the restaurant close to the site of the original west gate in the main street. It was quite difficult to... More

We had a very good Sunday lunch at this restaurant a few years ago and thought it worth a return visit for an evening meal. This was a good decision! Although small, the restaurant provides a great, slick dining experience. We were guided upstairs first for some great cocktails and drinks in a cosy and charming bar area. The different... More

I ate here with my husband a few days ago for the first time, it was great my steak was cooked to perfection! I would say this restaurant is more for special occasions then a weekly night out !

If you are looking for a special experience then this is the place to go in Chester . The service and the food is second to none . Once you have chosen your meat from an extensive menu you are actually shown the piece of meat before it is cooked. You are advised on cuts of meat the difference in... More

Great location and you must book to guarantee a table. The best steaks in town but you will pay for it. The cocktail are very good and a must try. Wine a bit expensive but good quality. Worth a visit but take lots of money
