“Great food, would recommend for functions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Great food, we had our work Christmas party here and the food was fantastic, especially for mass mis en plas.

Service was good, bit formal and old fashioned maybe but that's just personal taste.

“A great day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Went with a group of friends as I do each year to Chester Races, on a sunny day there is nowhere better to be.
Everybody makes the effort at Chester races and then a visit into town afterwards to carry on. Not so good if raining as the stands get pretty busy and getting served can be difficult

“Good corporate facilities”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

An evening corporate drinks event at the modern facilities provided a good base to network with like minded delegates
