We'd previously visited this bar/restaurant when it was the Fat Cat, so were surprised to find it had changed hands since our last visit and had been re-christened the Linenhall. We didn't need to worry, though, the layout, ambience and food was much the same as it was before and prices were reasonable. I had the ale battered hake and chunky chips. The hake was a bit watery, but I don't know if that's just how hake is (not having had it before) or was due to how it was cooked. It still tasted good, though. The chunky chips were great. My partner had the ribs (which were a 'special' that day) and said they were very good too. Desserts looked appetising, although we were too full to give them a try. I'd also recommend the Sauvignon Blanc - very nice indeed!

Service was excellent, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Not sure the addition of live singers adds to the ambience, though, especially when most people are chatting throughout. That said, we will definitely go back when we're next in Chester.

Had a great night. Food was fantastic as was the atmosphere. There was a singer there that really added to the mood, he was brilliant!!

We love to visit Chester and usually eat at our tried and trusted restaurants, however came across the Linenhall and decided to have a change. The food was very poor. I sent back my chicken dish as it was luke warm, the carrots were cold. Brought back after ten minutes in which time it had been put in a microwave, still not warm enough and decidedly unappaticeing. You live and learn or better still stick to what you know.

Came here for a Christmas get together with the family and everything was great. The waitresses were very attentive, drinks and food came out in a very good timely fashion and the atmosphere was great too.

Food was great and despite being quite busy there wasn't a huge delay in it arriving once we ordered. t ordered the mini slider burgers which came served with chips on a huge butchers block and certainly filled the gap! Others on the table ordered the salmon and stuffed chicken and judging by the empty plates they enjoyed them too.

Will certainly be going back here - thank you!
