Was served a dreg end glass of prosecco (flat beyond belief) so decided on a spritzer the second time around. Soda was so flat, it may as well have been tap water. The staff couldnt have cared less.

I was really looking forward to having lunch with my wife and daughter as they had visited before and had told me how much they had enjoyed their meal. They did enjoy their meal this time but I was disappointed. We ordered water for my wife and daughter and I ordered tea. Fine, but we then had a good 10... More

Hello, Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. I am glad to hear your fellow diners enjoyed their lunch with us, but sorry the experience was not the same for yourself.

The menu here for lunch is very good, not your average mass produced fare, there are some classic favorites such as club sandwich, which never fails to satisfy when you can't choose from all the other options. The specials are also good and there is a great selection of wines, (although I always go for the same one) and a... More

Dutton's seems to be our favoured eating place when meeting my daughter in Chester, this time on Friday lunch time. I was surprised to observe how empty the place was and no problem in obtaining a table which can sometimes be a issue dependent what time you arrive. As usual the food and the service came up to expectations we... More
