Been here a few times, most recently with friends last Friday for a birthday. We had our own private room which was great, and the steaks and service were fantastic (particularly considering we were a party if ten). We were all very happy and I can't wait to go back again!

Visited one Saturday lunchtime to take advantage of the Lunchtime Special. Caesar Salad to start then Rump Steak and fries as the main. Steak was cooked to order and very tender. Service was spot on. A lovely place to eat.

Recently called off in Chester after visit to Cheshire Oaks. Decided to have a bit to eat and remembered this place from previous visit. There was an offer on for £11, 170g rump steak and chips. Service was really first rate friendly staff. Before the steak was given salad starter with crutons and parmasan shavings, nice touch. The steak was... More

After 15 minutes the manager came over very apologetic and took our drinks order , along with some cider that my husband had enquired... More

Very fine steaks and fine dining at reasonable prices, although far from cheap. Only comment was that a new member of staff removed side dishes that where not actually finished with whilst we where... More

My partner and I have just had one of the best meals ever! We both had a sirloin which were cooked to perfection, the best we'd ever had. The side orders we had were also delicious. The waiters/waitress's were very attentive. All in all it was a very pleasant experience. Would we go again? Yes, absolutely.

It was our Wedding Anniversary and we were staying, as part of a group, in a hotel with only average food. We therefore had to eat out at the best and were recommended Upstairs.. by an Assistant at LK Bennett. She needs commission! We had an early table and taken upstairs where we had an aperitif, and then shown a... More
