It was very busy and noisy. The service was too long. Two bread boards have been brought to our table without asking so we thought it was free. However, it has been charged for £4 each. We have asked the waittress why it has not been told and she replied that it was a mistake from her colleague and these bread boards was meant to be served to another table. It is then even more unacceptable to pay for a mistake from the restaurant!! We have mentionned it to the manager as well but he haven’t apologized and just try to sell an offer for January without considering our issue, which is not professional at all. We are very disappointed.

Afternoon Constance Thank you for taking the time to review on Res Diary following your dining experience. I am so sorry to learn of your overall disappointment. We are always disappointed when our valued guests leave unhappy. I am however a little concerned that even after our regretful service error you may have still been charged for the breads in question. I would really like to look into this further for you. Therefore could you please contact me directly at [email protected] with a little more information in regards to this. I look forward to your reply. Kindest Regards, Rebecca

Excellent service. Team were attentive and personal wishing me a happy birthday and attention to detail was fantastic. Beautiful food although a little cold and surroundings were luxurious and comfortable. This is a consistently good restaurant that I would highly recommend

Staff very friendly and pleasant. Atmosphere was excellent, seated on round tables which were spacious and not too close together. Food was excellent. Would definitely come back when back in Chester.

Arrived early but made welcome in the bar, cold day and fire was lit for us. Excellent service by all staff we encountered. First visit here, food excellent ,fantastic graduation meal for our daughter with fantastic views over the racecourse. On booking we were promised a good window table which didn’t disappoint. We hope to return soon.
