A special occasion

Chesters is the best place in macclesfield for a night out to celebrate a special occasion ,or just a casual Friday night. Pepe always makes you feel welcome. The food is always top notch.

We've neglected Chesters for a couple of years for various reasons. So pleased to be back. The menu is better than ever. The quality is fantastic. Pepe and all the staff are brilliant and make you feel so at home. And don't forget the Chef's Fantasy for pud! We'll be back many times.

Chesters has been going for many years and it is a credit to the owners that the high standards are maintained without hiccup or falter. I recommend this restaurant.

Very disappointed after previous reviews and word of mouth praise from friends. A midweek lunch with friends, a very long wait for service and then they served the plates of meat followed by another wait for the vegetables. By the time the very al dente vegetables arrived the meat was tepid. My lamb was not very tender, my friend's pork... More

Enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch with my family. First time we had been here and it won't be the last. Good choice on the menu and the food was excellent and served piping hot. Very good service and made to feel welcome by the owner. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

The headline basically sums this place up. It's like going back in time to dine out. Tonight was my second time visiting at the behest of family members. Around a year ago I'd been and had a t-bone steak which, while it was as advertised, was under seasoned and lacking flavour. As I can cook a steak better myself I... More

Being reasonably local to Macclesfield means we can enjoy the fabulous Sunday lunch or midweek early bird menu at Chester's. We were here recently and once again had a fantastic meal. I'm absolutely astounded this restaurant is not rated as the best in Macclesfield, since it clearly is.

we were a family of 22 having lunch on a busy Sunday after Xmas. However, the staff gave a great welcome to the large family group including younger children. The service was excellent and the staff are very friendly. Traditional food and cooking to suit all ages and excellent value.
