“Great food, great ambience, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner with two friends. The place is intimate and was busy but the service was spot on, friendly and attentive.
The food was excellent. I had the pork cheeks (ooh err missus!) which were very good indeed. All in all a great night.

Nice relaxed atmosphere and very good service. Food generally good though not all that special. Worth a visit.

“Warmth, refuge and good food on a rainy day in Chester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

At the Tourist Information center in Chester I asked them to recommend a nearby place for lunch. The young man asked what I wanted. "Warmth!" I replied, for it had been a rainy, blowy, cold day. He suggested Joseph Benjamin's, and I and two friends went there for lunch. The beer was great (try the Eastgate ale!) and the food was marvelous. I had a bowl of soup -- celeriac and watercress -- which came with crusty bread and butter. Then I had the started sized plate of grilled prawns. They were delicious, with a dipping sauce that was a bit spicy. My friends had sandwiches and they looked good, also. Too bad none of us had room for desert!

“Lovely lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

A quick look on trip advisor before setting off and decided to give this restaurant a go.lovely welcome, deli platter to share as a starter was lovely, especially as everything on the platter was described in such detail. Chicken and pesto ciabatta was nice, the pork and apple sandwich was a little lame considering everything else. Nice experience,will definitely go again.
