Small restaurant but attention to detail was very good. Not a vast menu but very tasty and different. A leisurely lunch, didn't feel rushed at all. Staff attentive but not all over us as I hate that.

OMG. The food is exquisite. The service is excellent. And when they noticed that my son's shin of beef was a bit fatty, ( the other son's wasn't) they were very generous with our pudding order. Lovely ambience - we were the last to leave and could have stayed a lot longer. Will defo be booking again , but I... More

I know people rave about this place and they get awards. But I just don't get it. I found everything OK but did not leave feeling I had had great food, great service, great wine or great atmosphere. I did leave feeling a little pressurised to make way the next "clients" and this make it a less than relaxing occasion.... More

We've visited the Sticky Walnut a number of times over the past few years and have taken family and friends as well. The quality of food has never faltered and we've always been very pleased to take the staff's recommendations on wines. I chose to go there for a big birthday a couple of weeks ago and was treated very... More

Superb seasonal food that is bursting with flavour. Knowledgeable, polite and attentive staff. Although not a huge restaurant, tables not overcrowded or too close. Place has a real buzz to it.

This was a belated Christmas present for us and we went there for dinner in a foursome. We had been told that it was "the in place to go" in Chester at present. It was noisy there and the waitress was a little surly. We had one main course each, plus a drink. The food was nicely cooked and presented... More

Booked birthday meal with family and, as usual, the children had baked me a birthday cake which they asked the restaurant to present at the end of the meal. The staff were reluctant to meet the kid's' wishes and when asked to present the cake were less than helpful - they even had to be asked for plates! Will not... More

At this restaurant, I could quite possibly have experienced the most incredible meal of my life. Me and my boyfriend visited here in mid-February (because I'm a 'top berd' and treated him on his birthday). We never even knew this place existed and only came across it on tripadvisor because it had very good ratings. Upon arrival we were greeted... More
