I am a relatively regular visitor to Hollothans, it is the most pleasant place for a drink in Chester Le Street. The staff are lovely and always offer a smile and good service. The food is really nice if you want to eat there (I didn't on this visit but have many times before) . You can get a reasonably... More

After a lovely meal I'm glad to say I'm stuffed...!! We unfortunately missed the pre 7 specials which are a ridiculous value for money offer! 3 courses for £13.99... What more could you ask for! There a lot of great drink offers on different days of the week too; wine Wednesday's, bubble Friday etc. Not to be missed! A little... More

Excellent food at an unbelievably low price. The service was slow but as the restaurant was extremely busy understandable. Good choice of food. Thoroughly worth a visit.

Some friends had not been before and were really impressed. My friend whose Birthday it was - received a lovely glass of Prosecco and a Birthday Card -... More

Service was reasonable and the waiter on our visit was very friendly. The food was a bit of a let down. We had steaks and they were arguably the worst I've ever had. It was actually inedible and we had to reject it. The cost was deducted from our bill but it was bitterly disappointing as we chose Hollathans for... More

I very much hope this hasn't put you off returning to Hollathan's, as I assure you this is not... More

It was my first night out in Chester and this is where I started (they do cocktails, which is the ideal way to start an evening). The bar area was VERY busy on a Saturday night and took a while to get served however that couldn't be helped. Prices are not too bad and the food looks lovely. I will... More

Come here every time I visit family income area. Food always enjoyable, nice selection and good selection of alcohol. I must say this visit I found the service to be very slow on both occasions. Perhaps more staff needed during busy periods. Other wise I enjoyed my visits all round!

First first pleasantly surprised. Entered into very busy bar area which you can also order food in but was pleased we were upstairs which was quieter. We ordered starters & main. Potato skins (quite small portion) chilli goats cheese delish! I had Cajun chicken pasta in a creamy sauce was nice but personally couldn't taste much Cajun. My friend had... More

This restaurant has a happy hour for meals when prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of the food offered. The choice is extensive, well cooked and presented. Moreover the staff are very attentive and helpful, even the young inexperienced ones. It is within easy reach of the cricket ground and Riverside Park. Note that while not an Italian restaurant...
