Visited JB last night for an anniversary celebration dinner. From the moment we arrived the staff went out of their way to make it a special event. Unobtrusive excellence is the order of the day here....tasty salted almonds were had with pre dinner drinks at the bar and the food and wine were really special sardines and partridge for me...

Joseph Benjamin has become a bit of a favourite with my family! Best cappuccino in Chester, hands down. And an amazing bacon roll!

Was walking passed at lunchtime and decided to drop in, great decision. Service efficient and friendly, decor nice, menu really good. We ended up going for a caesar salad and the smoked salmon with avocado. The salad was up there with the best I've had, lots of chicken and a really nice dressing. My wife's salmon was like art on...

Have had the pleasure to eat here a few times and it has always been delightful however it's never been on my list for takeaway coffee. It is now. Perfect latte and Americano , no queue, friendly service and I bet they pay some UK tax ;)
