    Absolutely love this place but a bit disappointed yesterday food not up to scratch. Roast potatoes not there usual crispy self. Veg on Sunday roast quite disappointing loads of cabbage which seamed to be a plate filler with absolutely no taste and the green beans were pickled which was rather bizzare on a Sunday roast. Sharing beef not as great as it usually is. Wont let it put us off as we all have bad days and hopefully was just a one off.

    Disappointing birthday meal. Waitress was kind and attentive. Would have booked a table downstairs, upstairs stuffy and busy. Pate was bland sourdough and chutney tasty, pig croquettes enjoyable. Lamb appeared preprepared and tasteless for £6 extra tempura anchovies good match bbq smell of sauce was not pleasant. Partner enjoyed beef but too rich with nothing to cut through richness. Parmesan/truffle chips lovely. Wine pairings and port cocktail enjoyable. Didn’t order desert. Prices typical but with no wow factor so damp squib I’m afraid, can’t recommend, won’t be returning.

    A very pleasant birthday lunch. Well presented dishes and with three courses we all felt that we had eaten far too much so the portion sizes overall are generous. Some of the food combinations were confusing and the crackling on the pork roll would have benefitted from a better knife, maybe a steak knife to make cutting it easier. Not the cheapest place in town but one that you know you will come away from with a smile on your face. Well worth a visit.

    We have been coming for many years and disappointed to see that the menu has not really changed, it’s always pretty similar. The meat dish came with no sides but the only potatoes on offer were chips and no veg option other than a cold picked cabbage. I did ask the waitress if there was any other options to be told no, she didn’t even ask the chef. Food was lovely but we did leave feeling a little underwhelmed

    The best small restaurant in Chester. We came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were looked after all evening by the lovely Ellie. She was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks and recommended a salmon starter which was delicious. My husband had lamb as his main dish and he couldn't praise it enough. I had the beef in red wine and truffle chips which just melted in my mouth. There is a lovely warm atmosphere in here and the staff make you so welcome and special. Ellie is a credit to the team.

    We have eaten on a Sunday a couple of times. This time I didn’t think the main course was as good. The pork was the same but the roast potatoes were so hard you could hardly cut them they were extremely hot and burnt your mouth very overcooked. The only veg with the dish was kale however tthe last 2 times I am sure there was some puréed carrots . I expect at least 2 vegetable dishes with a Sunday roast .
