We visited late on a Friday morning. The waitress welcomed us and we chose where to sit. We both chose the full English breakfast. To be honest, it was very tasty but more 'three quarter' than full! Maybe just worth a quick visit for a...More

Vintage, but stylish. Chic, but definitely not shabby. Light and bright with loads of windows and fantastic views. Comfy seats so you'll want to stay for ages. And once upon a time, it's said, the Chester hangman lived here. Why not pay us a visit ?
