Description: Phone number is: 01625 611103 A bistro (small, inexpensive restaurant) that serves a small range of tasty starters/mains/desserts. We had the lunch menu which offered generous sized main dishes that were very tasty - for an astonishing £4.50. They also have a specials board and it was from this that my wife had mussels and chips. Friendly staff, great food, well positioned in the town and lovely clean washrooms! We've been before and will definitely go again. Finally, this place has owners that can make it work - well done to them!

“Great place - lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is a lovely place to eat out at very reasonable prices. The food is consistently good and although the menu is not large it does get changed from time to time (sometimes losing my favourite!) The service is excellent and the staff helpful. Presentation is fantastic. One of the things I like is that they don't hype up the cost of things like a coffee after the meal. I enjoy a good coffee after a good meal but resent the prices some places charge. It is definitely our favourite place to eat in Macclesfield.

“Lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Lovely food, quite a meaty menu but excellent quality and good value. A nice place to eat out with friends or as a couple. Quite a small venue but this ensures it always has a good atmosphere by avoiding that awful empty restaurant feeling you get in some of the bigger places.

“Great food .. We recomend to go.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

First time in the area and looked into trip advisor for recommendations.

Modern English cuisine

The food is fantastic and great value for money. Fantastic presentation .. Can compete with restaurants in london.

Service - slightly slow and not the most attentive, had to wait about 40 min for our starters .

Wine was just left on the table and glasses were not topped throught the evening, we asked for fresh mint tea , the waitress ademently replied that they don't have it . When the deserts were served ..it was decorated by .. Fresh mint as a garnish .. So they did have it after all.

Attention to details will give this lovely restaurant much higher rating .

Compliments to the chef.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Four of us went for a meal last night at the Chestergate Bistro and the food was excellent. I cannot recommend enough, the presentation of the food was the best I have ever seen and the taste and flavours were superb. The staff are very attentive and friendly.
At these prices we will be visiting more often as will all my friends.
What a memorable night out this turned out to be and I cannot wait to revisit.
