Cracking lunch today. Attentive but not intrusive service from a knowledgeable member of the team. Two superb courses for £16 - bargain ! A small but decent selection of wines by the glass Just don't tell everyone or I wont get in next time !

Been here many many times and it is always exceptional. Reading the other reviews, there seems to be some confusion as to what you will get when you visit Sticky Walnut. Let's be clear; what you will get is brilliantly cooked, fresh food, served by friendly, highly professional staff in a warm and welcoming environment. You won't get obsequious, pompous... More

This was my first visit and I wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere was lovely, with a good ambience. We were spoilt for choice by the varied menu and there were several things I could have chosen (a good sign!) but I opted for the Chicken Liver Pate and Jacobs Ladder both of which were delicious. Staff were friendly and attentive but... More

We ate here on a monday evening as a recommendation from my boss and the place was packed, always a good sign! We both had 2 courses each and we were only disappointed we couldnt fit a dessert in.As we live at least 2 hours away we'll have to remember to save room next time. It was a lovely meal... More

Unless you like your food drenched in truffle oil and I mean absolutely drenched so it's all you can taste for a week, it's not for you. The staff were rude and the food was really below par. It was ridiculously expensive and had difficulty ordering certain wines by the glass. I wouldn't go again and don't understand the hype.

We went on Saturday night for 6 pm sitting. It was as you would expect for this top class restaurant. Atmosphere lovely. All six of us had lovely meals. G&T and other drinks good as well.

Had lunch here when I was visiting a friend who lives in Chester. Was quite excited as it came highly recommended. A little out of the way from the main city centre, but I would say it was worth the little detour. The staff were faultless and very warm and friendly. I was a little unsure of my duck ham... More

5 of us went on Friday night for my daughter's birthday. Fantastic food as ever, we had a wide selection of dishes and they were all wonderful. The best restaurant in Chester in our view!

Any doubts that this was going to be a great meal, worthy of the 2.5hour train ride from London were assuaged by the time we were given the lunch menu and we could not have enjoyed our lunch more. Appetisers included a wonderful burrata, easily on a par with those sampled in Rome the previous week, if not better, as... More
