Nice selection of food and wine in a great location in the centre of town. Food was very good quality though there was a 2hr limit on the table so we didn't get to eat dessert.

Visited with my family for my birthday and had the most amazing time. Right away from the welcome at the door the staff were so helpful! Lovely lady behind the bar and amazing waitress! I had the lamb rump and would recommend it to anyone!

Really disapointed with this restaraunt, it lives up to its service & food but unfortunately the same cannot be said about the wine very expensive even for chester prices. For this alone I will not be retruning as the drinks are just as much an eveing as the food.

Great place, great food and the staff are delightful. It's really great for breakfast too which we discovered a few weeks ago. It's not cheap but price reflects the quality of the food and it's also a lovely environment.

We had a really good night here,, staff brilliant, and the food was excellent, a nice feel to the eavening...The chilly prawns for starter were amazing, and the lamb was perfection. Some nice cocktails and shots to Finnish off the night. Well done to the chefs. Can't wait to return in a couple of months.

Wow what can I say!!! This restaurant is fantastic, very welcoming, staff really friendly (especially the young lad serving us, can't remember his name, credit to the place) The food was the best we've ever had!! I don't normally like lamb but thought I would try it....it was perfect 👌🏻👏🏻 Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, will be returning next year.

Had meal here on recommendations by hotel. Food was ok but atmosphere was a bit impersonal, felt we had intruded on a private party, seemed to be the place to go if you knew the staff But maybe that was us, would go again but maybe later, or at the weekend
