We were a party of four having Sunday lunch and celebrating my husband's seventieth birthday. The level of service was excellent - attentive but not too much. We began with prosecco, then chose from the menu. Each of us was pleased with our food which was well presented and delicious. In advance, our daughter had organised the drinks and a birthday cake which was brought in with candles burning, Stevie Wonder's track 'Happy Birthday' playing and just the right amount of ceremony . We didn't feel at all rushed to leave our table and really couldn't fault the friendly, efficient service. This was our second visit and we will definitely be going there again.

What can I say? Wow!!! Literally the best meal out we’ve had in a long time! I had the chicken liver parfait, the pork trio and the chocolate brownie. I was really impressed with the flavours in all the food especially the trio of pork...just beautiful! Presentation was stunning and master chef worthy. My partner had the fish cake, steak with pink peppercorn sauce and crème brûlée trio. All equally as flavourful and beautifully presented. We shared a side of onion rings which were the best we’d tasted! Staff were really friendly and happy to help which made for a comfortable enjoyable dining experience. Very happy!!!

Attentive service, wonderful tasty food just not enough of it to fill you up. Staff very good, nothing was to much for them and very informative about ingredients etc. Just a mention that maybe you could put a hand rail in the toilets for the disabled, Overall the visit was a complete success and very enjoyable

We had a lovely dinner - early and with two boisterous kids - and the staff were so accommodating, from us moving to sit outside, to various requests throughout the meal, they were patient and smiling and this was so appreciated after a long journey! Portions were good, nicely presented and delicious.

We used a Travelzoo voucher for our first visit to the Townhouse but it definitely won't be our last. All the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a special wedding anniversary celebration - even providing us with an anniversary card and free glasses of prosecco. The quality and presentation of the food can't be praised highly enough. Loved the peaceful Secret Garden too for pre dinner drinks.

Our first time dining in this beautiful Georgian building and it could not be faulted. The food was excellent and attractively presented and we were well looked after by the lovely Justina. We thoroughly enjoyed everything, a perfect end to our day in Chester.

Lovely venue and service was amazing. Only one tiny critism was that the end sandwiches were a little bit stale just as if they had been left uncovered for a bit too long. However that didn’t spoil anything as I managed to make sure that I ate those and not the birthday girl..Another lovely thing was the attention to the table for the birthday treat and the happy birthday music and the card was so throughtful So on the whole a roaring success!

Were very helpful we turned up an hour early but we were still fitted in. Special mention to Justine the server who was excellent even though she seemed to be serving the whole of the dining room on her own and service was with a smile. Service of all courses were prompt with no long delays in between. Quality and presentation of the food was very high throughout. We will return.
