Absolutely amazing food!! Loved everything and my partner said the rice pudding with apricots was sublime!! Staff were lovely and we will be back hopefully in the future!
I found The Sticky Walnut a great experience.
Everything (service, venue, etc) was brilliant.
Focusing in the food the hake starter was cool, fresh and appetising.
The main featherblade, was rich, tasty, everything on the plate cooked too its best, and nothing was left.
Now for sweet afters I never normally bother as just its not really my thing, but as the starter and main were great I was curious too try, I had the baked pineapple and white chocolate cake, and It was fantastic, glad I went for it.
Overall a noteworthy dining experience,
Lovely food, wine and service to match. A real foodies place with some interesting dishes, all immaculately prepared. Moderate but filling portions. A little pricey, but couldn’t fault it for attentive service.
Another visit, and we were once again not disappointed.
The food is always excellent, the staff friendly, knowledgable, and attentive.
Can't wait for our next visit
Fantastic.Fantastic.Fantastic.Fantastic.Fantastic.Fantastic.Fantastic.Fantastic. Very enjoyable as always.
Absolutely outstanding food! Excellent knowledgable waitresses and a lovely place to spend an evening.
It is quite pricey but you get what you pay for, so save here for special occasions only!
Delicious as always.
Superb in every way!! Service was impeccable!
Sorry to say that the handling of the managers was very unprofessional. After a spending a large sum of money wasn’t TOLD we had to leave.
I understand it’s a small restaurant and time is very important.
But there was a very different way it could of been dealt with and avoided.
Shame we will not return
Amazing food and drinks with fantastic service! My favourite place in Chester and have never been disappointed
This is a great restaurant we found by chance when visiting Chester
The food was great as was the wine and the service was really friendly. If we were locals we would go often
Lovely food as usual at SW. Had the braised feather blade of beef. Gorgeous with a lovely rich sticky coating. Amazing pineapple and white chocolate cheesecake.
Also, really friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Not the stuffiness you might get in some restaurants serving food this good.
It's not cheap in absolute terms, but it is really worth it.
Great food, beautifully presented by an efficient and pleasant waitress
Lovely little restaurant experience - staff were lovely and friendly and the food was amazing! Will definitely be back
We have visited this restaurant a number of times for Dinner , this was our first Sunday Lunch and it did not disappoint, excellent value ,attentive staff and great food.
Just as good as ever - polite,welcoming,informative,helpful.
Always such a pleasure and so relaxing
This used to be my favourite restaurant in Chester. Haven’t been for a while and feel the ambiance and food has changed a little. Preferred old layout downstairs as had a better cosy rustic feel. Staff were great and very friendly on the night, food was good overall though a bit heavy on a salty taste especially main braised beef. Rice pudding desert was my favourite, very tasty.
We had a lovely meal in a cosy environment. All the staff were friendly and efficient.
Food good , downside was when my wife mentioned she loved the honeycombe dessert, they brought her an extra piece to take away, then added £1.50 to the £75.00 bill!!!
Delicious food. Exceptional service. A very enjoyable Sunday lunch was had by everyone in our group.
Not a scrap left on my plates after 3 courses.
Really enjoy it. Food was great especially the feather blade for main that we both had. Good service and great atmosphere. would definitely come again when in the area.
Great food, service and value - previously had a great lunch at sister restaurant Wreckfish in Liverpool - Sticky in Hoole was every bit as good - love the consistency achieved by Elite Bistros and their teams - and btw I rarely write reviews but these guys are worth the effort ....
Appearances can be deceiving and this restaurant proves the point. Understated in its overall appearance bar a chandelier that was definitely out of place. It delivered on the quality of its food and particularly on service. In my opinion definitely worth a visit.
As always, without fail, excellent service and delicious, superb quality food. Our favourite restaurant in Chester 5*
brilliant food and great service. Staff were friendly and informative with good advice on choice of dishes
Delicious food for a birthday treat. Excellent value on the lunch menu. We really enjoyed it and would go again.
Excellent food, lovely staff, great time with family. Love it!
Absolutely delicious 3 course early bird deal - the whole teamed loved it - we will be back!
Lovely tasty meal, beautifully presented. Service was very good. The menu was very varied with all tastes catered for. They even had a vegan menu which went down very well with one of our group. Overall I would highly recommend the restaurant.
Delicious food, well priced for quality. Service friendly and informal. Overall we had a lovely evening and feel we are lucky to live so close by.
Meal and service both excellent. Interesting menu and the rice pudding with poached apricot fantastic !
It’s been a few years since I last ate here (it’s so good that it’s hard to get a table for dinner) but it was just as good as I remembered. I have to recommend the beetroot salad with sticky walnuts, it’s divine!
We eat here occasionally as, while expensive, the Sticky Walnut has always had the wow factor. Sadly this was missing on this occasion. I ordered the premium priced lamb rump and was presented with two small pieces of lamb both with about a quarter fat on them. I immediately commented on this to the waitress who said she would talk to the kitchen. The lamb was OK but nothing like as succulent as I would have expected for the portion size and price. I again expressed my disappointment when a second waiter collected the plates. The cheese I had was very nice but presented very oddly with four slices of dry bread. I could only eat one. No one came to talk to me about my complaint which was also disappointing. Service was also average as never once were we asked if we wanted more drinks despite sitting with none at the pudding course. We declined coffee. Their loss. An average but still rather expensive meal.
Great place with great staff. Whole family had a lovely meal, the beef roast was tremendous! Great value lunch £29 for three courses. Hit the spot on Father’s Day, this place is becoming a family fave.
Lovely food, excellent staff, superb company. A thoroughly lovely evening.
Fabulous food in a homely atmosphere with Michelin star service. I had the lamb and friends the beef...absolutely delicious. Cheese board to die for. Too full for puds but great choice. Wish I lived closer so I could revisit.
Had booked because friends who eat out a lot use it as their 'go to' place whenever they have anything to celebrate. Wasn't disappointed and will be returning.
Another excellent meal. We started with soup which, whilst being very tasy could have been hotter. The main dishes were good and the lemon sponge desert excellent.
Our table had four guests and we were each very happy with our meals. For entree three of us had the Crab Agnolotti and it was beautiful, the flavours were delicate and there was the perfect amount. One had the torched sea trout and whilst very good, wasn't appreciated quite as much as the Agnolotti! For mains we had two Feather Blades, one Chicken and one Cod. All mains got a big tick and the side of truffle chips were very much enjoyed. Overall we were really happy and would definitely head back there again when in the area! We also managed to share desserts, having the Creme Brulee and the Chocolate Mousse. The Brulee was perfect and the Chocolate Mousse very rich, but between two just the right amount of richness.
This restaurant delivers time after time. Food amazing. Staff really engaging. We are never disappointed. The wine list caters for all budgets and tastes. Cannot speak highly enough.
Perfect as usual!
The steam sponge lemon cake was just amazing!!!
