This is a gorgeous restaurant that we booked for dinner purely based on its reviews from TA.
What a fantastic find!!! Lovely surroundings, fab food, very helpful and attentive staff where nothing is too much trouble. Very busy for a Tuesday night- always a good sign. They also have the most fab drinks list- such an array of choices!!
Excellent evening and we would definitely be regulars here if we lived in chester!

All our dishes were very well presented and delicious! The pheasant was amazing.
We particularly liked the variety of Gins on offer William Chase Gin and Cheshire's own Hunters which was lovely.
The bistro has a great relaxing atmosphere. We have booked to go for lunch this Sunday as we were so impressed. I hope this restaurant is consistent.
I would highly recommend.

This was our first trip to Chester and I spent a considerable amount of time trying to find a restaurant to eat at. I chose this based on a recommendation and trip advisor reviews. The menu looked pretty good too.

I have to say we were not disappointed. We shared the hummus, olives and parsnip crisps to start. My mum had the Fillet of Plaice and fresh crab. Apparently the artichoke mash that it came with was AMAZING and she reckons its the best meal she's eaten out in a long time.

I had the pheasant which was very good, if anything a little dry for my liking. Loved the haggis.

Portions were plenty big enough but that didn't stop us tucking into some veg and potato sides too.

Staff very attentive and friendly but not overly so. Would definitely recommend.
