Atmosphere only 3 stars as bombarded with music too strongly jazz influenced. Not to the majority's taste I think. Food and service both fantastic. Value for money stars reduced because meal was booked with a Travelzoo voucher which promised food to the maximum value of £63. The menu presented was reduced in choice and we had to pay a £5 supplement for each of our main courses of Steak and Lamb. The total price of the courses we ordered was below £63 on the complete menu which we saw on our departure,

We had the most amazing time here. We brought friends from California to try the Afternoon Tea and I can quite honestly say it was the best we have tried, the sandwiches in particular were really lovely. I would definitely come back and try it again. The restaurant was very quiet when we went but the staff were very attentive. Excellent and thank you for making it so nice for us.

The food was really good, wine good too. Its a shame that there wasnt more people there you need to advertise maybe. Great location but people need to know about it. I had a steak which was cooked to perfection and very tasty, homemade chips were delicious.

Waiting on and greeting staff very nice, helpful and polite. However, the afternoon tea was like a kids picnic, the chef should be ashamed.

We enjoyed a really lovely meal at this restaurant. The service was excellent as was the food. Very stylishly presented and delicious. Reasonable prices for such such top notch food. We will return next time we are in Chester. Top marks for everything apart from atmosphere as it was very quiet, given it was just after new year.

I went to The Townhouse Chester for Christmas lunch with my Mum and it exceeded our expectations. Our booking was for 2.30pm and we arrived shortly before to be greeted by a very Christmassy Andrew on reception. Andrew had been so helpful with the booking so it was really good to meet him. We were asked to go through to the bar area, which had a roaring fire and was tastefully decorated, and we were then asked if we wanted a mulled wine or a prosecco. We sat on the comfy sofas and were served our prosecco and also some canapés served on a piece of slate. After half an hour we were asked to be seated. The table was set lovely with a red tablecloth and silver table runner. All three courses were swiftly served and the waiters and waitresses couldn't do enough for everyone, without being fussy or stressy. We were expecting a sorbet after the starter, which didn't come, but it wasn't really needed anyway. All in all we had such a lovely day and we will be going back soon for the bottomless afternoon tea!

Really nice food and absolutely wonderful lady serving in the restaurant. The area we were in was a small area of the hotel and it didn’t quite look like it did in the photos online. It was fine but it did feel a bit less glamourous that the photos online suggested. You could not fault the service and the food was tasty.
