“Long wait for average fare”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We'd had take-out sandwiches here before and found everything fine, but the place didn't work for us as a sit-down option. We waited over thirty minutes for food that could take maximum five to prepare. Because the main kitchen is upstairs the waiting staff have their work cut out. After reminding them how long we'd waited they were very apologetic, but the problem seems to stem from bad management and under-staffing. The place either needs a remodel or should restrict itself to take-out. Would not recommend and will not be back.

“Decided to add review due to current low ranking”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Had lunch here a couple of months ago , excellent choice & good value & great service. Would definitely recommend & re-visit. Didn't think to review earlier as had only called in for lunch.

“Nice food but some items unavailable”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

We regularly visit Chester on a Saturday and look for a place to have lunch. We wandered down Bridge Street and spied the Tudor House Deli. It had menu boards and Sandwich boards outside advertising what is available.

We had a baby buggy with us, and there are some small steps inside, but it was no problem. The toilets are upstairs however, so no disability provision that we could see. There were some nice tables at the back where a family could meet, which was nice.

We picked this place because of the variety of items available that meant it could cater for our differ dietary restrictions and requirements in the family group, however to our disappointment, some items were not available. In particular there were no baked potatoes, which are the mainstay of a gluten free lunch menu (sandwiches and bread being not suitable). We explained our predicament but the waiting staff were not brimming with helpful suggestions on alternatives and left it to us to discover what is edible and what is not. I would have hoped for some suggestions from the chef at this point.

We ordered, and the food was good. We might come back again, but felt a little mislead by the huge list outside and the smaller list inside!

On paying things also looked a bit unprofessional, in that they had to wave the credit card machine about in mid air to hit that sweet spot with the right signal to process the payment! It also took ages to sort out payment.
