The Blue Moon was magnificent. Buzzing, iconic, great food, a celebration of the 60s. As a family we must have spent £100s there over the last 25 years. We stopped going when we moved to a village outside of Chester but it always held a...More

I have been going to this cafe for many years and have always liked the 50s/60s diner style of decor and the broad range of food offered. Service was excellent and food well cooked. Since its "makeover" I find the minimalistic decor quite dull and...More

Staff took a while to notice my sister and I despite the fact we were standing about three feet from them and had said hello. The coffee is dreadful. Whole place should be cleaner than it is.

Impromptu first visit , lovely setting on the river, food lovely and very reasonable prices, staff were very friendly and pleasant . My only gripe would be that for me cafe itself lacked atmosphere but that would not stop me returning .

Found this excellent cafe down by the river in Chester, near the Boat House. Nice breakfast, friendly staff and interesting 50's/60's decor. Well worth a visit.
