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

I had not visited here before so I was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, decor and relaxed atmosphere. The waiters were attentive even though the restaurant filled up quite quickly and we were a largish group - ten of us. We ordered quite early so took advantage of the set price menu of two courses. My mushrooms in Brie sauce... More

We visited Chester's again on a Thursday evening, for a special birthday dinner for two, and found it as usual quietly friendly and pleasantly full. There is an atmosphere of quality and calm. The service was perfect, if a bit formal, and the food really excellent. Traditional British food, with a good variety of starters and a fine range of... More

I've eaten here on numerous occasions, in fact I live just around the corner from the restaurant itself, the amount of times I have eaten their the food has always been the very best! only once many moons ago did my estimation drop to average and that was eating from the 'early bird' menu, so probably why! Service is sometimes... More

This was a return visit to Chesters and as usual I wasn't disappointed. The service is good - there is a bit of a wait for the food but it is worth the wait . I was there for Sunday lunch with my family and we ate from the special Sunday lunch menu. I had a starter of FILO tart... More

I have already placed a review on "Onionring" but did not receive a reply! We visited recently with a large party (10 adults and a baby) My main comment was that internally its was "very cold" this being the 2nd time we have had this problem. This in my opinion makes you want to "eat up" and leave ASAP! Also,... More

We booked a week in advance for a Table at 8pm. We turned up & were seated in the waiting area for over 30 minutes. I eventually asked the Manager if we could be seated at our table, his reply was simply "No we don't have any available" I politely reminded him that we had booked for 8pm & his... More
