Great old fashioned restaurant

Really enjoyable place. Have been a number of times and have had great food, wine and service. The menu is not strictly Italian but certainly has influences of Italian. Very good fresh seafood. Very nice wine list. Great service, genuine and caring. A must place to try!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2015 NEW

We went here on the basis we had heard so much about it, sadly we were disappointed. The food was average - nothing wrong with it, but when you pay nearly £100 for a meal for 2, you expect a little better than you would get in a GastroPub. The service was OK, plenty of menu options/choices but I won't... More

Although the Patron was running about like a blue ----- fly obvious labour shortage we were delivered with an excellent meal a little wait did not detract from a good night with friends

I have been going to Chesters for years and the food is very good, especially since they had a new Chef. I last went for a Christmas meal with a party which was excellent.

Went for a works get together had the early bird special and we all enjoyed the food. The only comment being the service was slower than normal seemed to be a staff member short.

This review covers four visits, for both the A La Carte menu and The Table D'Hote menu. Our Saturday evening visits found the staff very stressed and obviously under pressure - too many people booked in at the same time. Service was unreliable and very slow, however the staff were lovely and the food and wine delicious. Midweek, the famous... More

A good restaurant is not all just about the food, but the welcome and attention of the staff is so important, and Pepe and his staff have always made our visits so enjoyable. The food is great, and the welcome and attention always make it a visit memorable. We have been going to Chester's for many years, and hope to... More

Chesters is always our standby for good food and good service, with a warm and friendly atmosphere for a special occasion. The service from Pepe is always impeccable, the wide range of dishes are all delightful, and the sweet trolley always too tempting.
