Had a couple of beers with my wife sitting outside by the canal - great selection of real ales on a lovely warm evening. Nice idea to serve a generous bowl of dry roasted nuts rather than a tiny bag and am sure it makes economic sense for the bar. A slightly tipsy gent walking along the canal bank started to annoy a few guests and was impressed that a young lady from the bar staff politely but assertively moved him on without any fuss. We moved inside and had a nice meal with a good selection of deserts which were especially good, Staff were friendly, attentive and very helpful, Really a 4.5 rather than 4 but perhaps a few more healthy options on the menu would have got it to 5 for me

Booked here for a pre wedding meal with my daughter, and bridesmaids. Food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Prices are reasonable for the food you have. Service was good, friendly staff.

My husband had a walk along the canal and found this place. So pleased he did the food and service were excellent. It is a very busy place and we were very surprised as it was a monday night. We had pre booked otherwise I think it would of been a struggle to get a table. If we ever visit Chester again this is one place I would go back to.

Nicely decorated and service was as one would expect. Food was only average, and for some reason they refused to cook the burger medium rare - so don't order one unless you like your burger very well done.
