We visited one weekday evening in September. This delightful restaurant is very popular and booking is essential. Our whole experience was truly wonderful. The restaurant was quite compact, our table was tucked in alongside some railed steps (the restaurant is on a hill so some slight level changes in places) so space was maximised and candle lit. We could only... More

We enjoyed another amazing meal at this gem of a restaurant. We were three couples, and not one of us could find any fault with our meals. Hubby was a bit sad the incredible banana dessert wasn't on the menu, and this was mentioned to the waitress. Later out comes a beautiful " banana surprise ", needless to say he... More

From the street, On The hill looks quite unprepossessing, especially in the daytime. But step inside and everything changes. The bar area is cosy with its candlelit fireplace and the adjacent dining room is very inviting with the wooden panelled walls and old pew type seating. Upstairs there are more rooms done out as if you're in someone's house and... More

Place came recommended but sometimes places don't live up to their reputations do they? This place does. We ate at a nice restaurant in Chester last weekend and I thought I'd had the best steak ever there, but the one I had last night at 'On the Hill' was as good. Lovely place with a great atmosphere. Attentive staff. Will... More

Have visited many times and lunch this week was superb. Lovely flavours and all meals were perfectly cooked.The 2 or 3 course lunch (we have never managed three) is good value. Usual good service as well. See you soon. The Fisherman's lunch is a great option.

Called in for lunch on Saturday after looking on Tripadvisor for somewhere near me as we were in the area and it's as good as the reviews say! Very busy but the staff were brilliant - really friendly and attentive. There's perfect amount of choice on the menu, the food is superb, you can tell the chef has a passion... More

Found On the Hill by chance whilst on location filming Escape to the Country and what a find! If by any chance we get a house in the area we will definitely be returning to eat there again

We had lunch for six people and enjoyed it very much. The menu was quite varied and the food was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. We chose to have only two courses each (main + desert) at a very reasonable cost of less than £15 each. The meal was excellent value. We also had a very good red wine.... More
