Well it's taken us over 20+ years to go even though we live in Macclesfield and we were not disappointed. We went on aFriday eve and it was very busy. We were seated right in a corner, and we're told that they were busy and apologised for position of the table, but it worked out ok as we were away... More

Don`t be put off by the external area and entrance. The welcome and the food are brilliant. Fillet steak is the finest I have ever had and you do not need a steak knife! Have been to Chesters several times and never disappointed.

A little over a week ago my wife and I held an intimate wedding reception at Chesters. The food was amazing and the staff were beyond courteous, the entire event was memorable thanks to the teams efforts.

We'd been booked to go to Chesters to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, and read lots of positive reviews beforehand. We arrived and initial impressions are mixed as the entrance and reception area are a little makeshift, however we were welcomed warmly and given time to order drinks and read through the menu. We were then shown through to... More

We have now been to Chesters twice, and have had a really good night on both occasions. We are very surprised they are not higher up the ratings list. Both times the food and service have been excellent, and the owner is a great host. The midweek menu is great value and we will be making Chesters one of our... More

My husband and I have been going to Chesters since we moved into Macclesfield 28 years ago. Its had good days and bad. I've also been for Christmas lunch with a party and it was not that good, food cold, short staff. It has since been refurbished and has improved tremendously. Pepe is wonderful and always makes everyone feel welcome.... More

Been nicely refurbished whilst keeping all the original features. The food is amazing and the early bird menu is fantastic value for money. The chef takes real pride in presentation as well as fantastic taste. The sweet trolley, although to some may seem a little out dated, I think is a wonderfully quaint touch. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

My wife and I dined on here on Friday evening, we booked for around 7pm, we were both surprised how busy they were, yet given the reputation for such good food, we should have known better. My wife had the pate, i had the grilled goats cheese starter, mine was amazing, presented very well also, my wife enjoyed the pate... More

We visited Chesters as a celebration for my 50th Birthday. We had a large party of 19 people, a mix of ages and tastes. As usual, Pepe was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. Some people chose from the Table D'Hote menu and others from the A La Carte. A couple even chose off no menu after... More
