Hi! If you're looking to secure a table at one of our busier times then we do recommend booking.
However...our bar atmosphere is very well looked after and we invite walk-ins all day and night, so feel free to put your phone away and head straight in. NO BOOKING NO PROBLEM! :)

The history behind Popcorn, is something of a love story. Should Shakespeare still be alive, he would have had two muses’ apparent, right before his eyes.
Ben, and his cuddly friend, Steve, have been well known around Chester for many, many….. many, years. Yep, we can never really get away from them, no matter how much that we try.

Perhaps it is just due to their inbuilt likeability. It is something you don’t get often in people. And god knows, these two have been trying to get it for some time.

In the mean time, they have been building up, and running, some of the best and greatest bars that Chester has ever seen. Bringing a new life to a city that was crying out for it.

    Food was lovely, was just a bit disappointed that the menu online was not the current menu and I was looking forward to the vegan fish and chips but couldn't have it. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Arancini balls were amazing. Babaganoush - pitta needed to be toasted and it had come straight out of the fridge so was too cold. Tacos and sea bream were delicious. Service was ok. Loved the look and the feel of the place. We should have asked to move as we were right by the door and it didn't close properly so there was a draught.

    Went to Popcorn in a quieter night for Chester than normal - and were invited by the hosts to sit in The Gold Room. Amazing cocktails, an almost private area with not that loud music that makes it easier to have a conversation with friends. Really good attention from the waiters.

    We came to popcorn for a few drinks before a meal elsewhere. Lovely atmosphere, outdoor seating but blankets were provided. Service good as usual

    Visited after a day at the races, really nice vibe, great music, lovely cocktails. Staff were really friendly and helpful when we asked to move inside when it got a bit chilly outside and were really attentive to our group! Thank you :)

    I was surprised at how good the filet steak was- and cooked perfectly! We were sat at a bar top which was a bit awkward for eating when lots of people just drinking had the actual tables. servers were friendly but it was very busy due to the races so they didn’t come over as often as we’d have liked. Overall will definitely come back!

    We went on a Saturday lunch and the venue was surprisingly quiet! The young staff were so friendly and helpful. One of the waitresses made such an effort with my daughter that really warmed my heart. The food was delicious with lots of vegan/veggie options. Can't wit to come back!
