Visited here one lunchtime as the 50% off food was advertised in the window. Wasn't sure what to expect, but it was packed. The restaurant is very well decorated in a vintage style.
Between us we had the roasted duck and gammon steak. Both were fantastic and nicely presented. We went for dessert too, banana and toffee crumble and a sticky toffee pudding. The staff were really friendly too, all round good place to eat. Well worth a visit.

Visited last night for dinner. As it was busy we were put in the main restaurant, when we would have preferred to sit in the more pleasant area to the front of he building, or near the fire. The kitchen is open plan, so there was a constant din of plates crashing, pans clattering and in the restaurant itself cutlery being thrown into jars and an overall noise. Added to which a party of people had moved into there who were not eating, just drinking, as the lounge area was full. they were quite loud, so all in all, it was almost impossible to have a conversation. The starters were quite good but very small. We both had the duck in filo for the main course, which was very good, but the accompanying " fondant potatoes " consisted of one tiny raw roast potato each. It was inedible. We had to order a portion of chips! Our complaint was dealt with quickly and professionally and the service could not be faulted. Staff very pleasant and efficient, but all in all, it was not a very good experience and we would not go back in a hurry

Went for lunch there recently. Ordered a panini and I must say it was the worst panini I have ever had. It was burnt and the cheese wasn't even melted. The ham was cold. No apology from staff. However they got me a replacement. Just as bad the replacement. Won't be going back there I don't think.

Stumbled upon this pub/restaurant on a business trip and after wandering through Chester decided to stop and have a relaxing beverage. Wasn't disappointed, decor and recent refurb has done this place a lot of good and the relaxed atmosphere was very welcoming.
Food looked good and presented well and value for money.

The Coach House has been refurbished and looks very nice. They currently have an offer on with 50% off your food bill Monday to Friday. It was quite busy when we visited, mainly filled by OAP's. We opted for some sandwiches which came with a free mug of soup. Staff seemed very confused as to which table had ordered what food and we overheard several tables having to remind staff that they were still waiting for drinks. Service was ok considering they were virtually full. Our sandwiches were ok, well filled, but the bread didn't appear very fresh. The free tomato and thyme soup was perhaps a little watery. The mains being served looked a lot better than our sandwiches. Would have been a bit more disappointed if we had paid full price for the sandwiches.
