Are you mad? You cancelled my booking. Stop sending me stupid emails.

You cancelled my booking with very little notice and didn’t even call to explain; the cancellation was done via email. This was a surprise 50th birthday and I had spoken with your team at length about plans. I appreciate that covid rulings are dictating everything currently but given the importance of this booking I would have expected better customer service. This lack of service extends to me receiving a “rate your experience” questionnaire.

First class dining having the festive menu for lunch. Only scored atmosphere low because of limited amount of people allowed in due to Covid restrictions I feel. Will definitely be going back again 100%

My wife and I had not been to 1539 for a considerable time due to the pandemic, it was great to be back and the restaurant had done all they could to make everyone safe. Social distance was observed. Sanitation was available on entry, all staff wore masks (correctly). Pandemic aside we chose the 6 course tasking menu and it really was fantastic, each course could not be faulted. It was a real treat just before the next tier/lockdown. Looking forward to the end of the Chinavirus so we can get back more frequently.

First class all round for a nice festive lunch after a busy morning shopping in Chester. Would highly recommend and have now booked in for the New Year 6 course tasting menu evening.

Thank you for making our evening such a positive experience in such negative times. My family & friends felt safe and welcome and were able to forget about the world for a few short hours. Job well done! Thanks again xx

I’d been before a while ago but didn’t remember it being this good!! A lovely setting for lunch or dinner with a very talented chef. We’ll definitely be back.

Excellent Food, Wine and Service, absolutely without fault. Our only and only issue is that we eat out a lot and to visit 1539 on a weekly or fortnightly basis would be a little expensive. Possibly should have a scheme in place to reduce costs for Regular Customers. Do have to say though, it is on our top five in Chester. Thank You all again for a lovely evening and some fine food and Service.

We had a lovely evening celebrating my 2 daughters birthdays. We chose to book the outside dome which was an amazing setting and very Christmassy. Our server was Dave who provided excellent service throughout the evening. The only feedback I would give is that the children’s menu was very limited which I think could be improved.

Sorry to say the food was below average. We were greeted with the question ‘are you with the funeral party?!’ It was a birthday lunch treat for my future daughter I. Law after a difficult year. I felt really confident it would be special as I had eaten there on a number of occasions. The food - I knew the festive menu was limited but didn’t realise it would be mass catering done very poorly. The lemon meringues were an absolute joke...I’ve never shopped at Iceland but it’s the sort of thing I would have thought they would sell. The Turkey roulade was barely palatable...a thin strip of hard Turkey wrapped around a gooey mess. The whole meal was a disappointment after me building it up to my future South African daughter in law. The one consolation was that the staff were lovely but I noticed they didn’t come and ask if the meal was okay. Maybe they were embarrassed? And no I didn’t complain because I didn’t want to cause a scene In Front of my lunch guest.

Had the festive lunch menu on this visit. I'm a veggie (hubby isn't) so starters were fine as there was a choice of two dishes but on the mains there was only one option. I asked about this and the chef very helpfully was able to offer me a different main course. Nice atmosphere, great service, a lovely treat.

We celebrated our mum's life with lunch for a few close friends at 1539. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Sue and her team looked after us so well and attended to our every need. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue and are looking forward to returning as soon as we can. Thank you all once again.
