I had the scallops with pigs cheek for starters which were delicious and beautifully presented. The waitress explained about the different steaks they served. Based on this, I opted for the fillet steak. Best decision I ever made! Cooked to absolute perfection and melted in my mouth. Managed to squeeze in the cheeseboard for dessert. Again, very nice presentation and... More

Lovely building and the staff were very attentive and helpful. You wait in the bar area upstairs and the guy comes around with a 'steak board' explaining all the cuts, where they are sourced and flavour etc - a nice touch. Downstairs all the waitresses were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bill came in at £110... More

I had French onion soup followed by fillet steak and honey glazed carrots and the chunky chips with a peppercorn sauce. For dessert I had the chocolate and cherry, which was like a deconstructed black first gateaux. Everything was just perfection, including the service. Our waitress brought out a board with all the different types of steaks on it, and... More

I've recently just been here for my boyfriends birthday and has a fantastic night! We arrived early and had a drink in the cocktail bar and was then taken down to our table. Food was superb (possibly the best i've ever had) and very reasonably priced for the wonderful quality!! All of the staff were friendly and helpful, all in... More

What a wonderful resturant, visited for the first time late October, I couldn't be bothered chosing my beer and left it to the bar specialist who asked for my taste and produced a ice cold bottle of flemburger gold, it was possibly the finest tasting lager I've tasted. I may sound boring however I always order the same meal when... More

we went as a walk in and had to wait just over an hour - but lovely place upstairs to have a cocktail or two or three.... extremely entertaining and knowledgable bartender, cant remember his name. he certainly knows his drinks and steaks.... eventually went downstairs (by the way, this is a converted church) and had the most amazing Lamb...

We went with infant and were provided with a high chair. Worth going just to read the menu. Food was of a high standard. Service with a smile and very helpful with advice and suggestions.

This was probably one of the best dining experiences I've had. All the ingredients of a great night were included here from great position in Chester to ambiance, decor, service, food & drink choice, staff knowledge and service and finally how the food was served and tasted. Neil has a great product here and he works hard to keep the... More
