“Really Good Experience”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We ate here after reading reviews on TA, stopping for the full English breakfast and then again later in the day for our evening meal.
Both meals were of a very good quality, I can particularly recommend the chicken and pheasant terrine, and the mushroom lasagne. My wife had the cullen skink which looked fabulous. The house red is billed as possibly the best house red in Chester. I could'nt possibly confirm that but would say that it is indeed very good.
As with most high end establishments, the portions were adequate but left you wanting more.
Visit, you will not be dissappointed.

“Great Food & Service”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This small but lovely restaurant is a great find in Chester. We found it last year and decided to drive up from the West Mids. A great welcome, fabulous food and right by the cathedral.
Splendid job.

“Great food”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We took a chance to eat here early Saturday evening and luckily there was a table. I had a mushroom lasagne which was delicious, best I have eaten in a restaurant. My husband had the vegetarian deli plate which he really enjoyed, the waitress explained all the cheeses on it. This restaurant, although small has a good atmosphere, although it did get a bit noisy. The staff are friendly and the service was attentive and good. We will definitely return, as we didn't have any dessert and they all sounded very inviting.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Although had booked a table a few weeks in advance had to wait quite a while for our table but then realised as it is quite a small restaurant they were probably waiting for previous diners to leave. Not a huge menu to choose from but what there was all sounded very tasty. My partner had the terrine for starters which was delicious. He had a burger for his main course which was perfectly cooked. Still a little pink. He enjoyed this but only managed half of it as he was full. I had the mushroom lasagne. Really delicious and although looked a small portion was very filling. My step daughter had the chicken which was also delicious. Nice atmosphere.

“The best deli plate I've had!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Great little place. We visited for lunch with our baby, the staff were welcoming and very friendly. The deli plate is a masterpiece, with a mix of lovely local produce, homemade bites and top notch cured meats. Will definately be back!!
