We held our post wedding meal for 12 people here. Alf & Selle were really helpful and very accommodating offering the upstairs for our exclusive use, preparing tables for us the evening before. All of the food came out together, in good time and was delicious. Thank you so much for contributing to our special day.

Food was lovely and any allergies are clearly marked on the menu. Staff were very friendly and helped me with my red wine spill on my outfit. This was our second visit and it most certainly won’t be our last.

First class food and service. All that’s missing is some Spanish music to make you feel you’re in Spain

Another night of great food and service at the Blue Bell!!. Has to be the best tapas in Chester. Always new dishes to try and a good variety of specials to go for. Was a little on the quiet side but so was the whole of Chester when we went.

Was okay, no more than that. Tapas arrived really quickly all at same time which is always a bit concerning. Wouldn’t rave on it but pleasant enough. Food doesn’t wow you.

Great tapas meal in a really interesting building. Food, service, wine (sangria!) all great and reasonably priced. This was our first visit, but we will certainly be back again soon!
