This was my second time visiting and we were all so impressed again by the food, service and ambience. We’d had a weekend in a hotel where the service hadn’t been great, so this really saved the day and ended the weekend on a high. Everyone in our party commented on how we were acknowledged by the gent behind the bar and the waitress straight away and it was such a relief to finally feel like we’d be looked after. The food and wine were also incredible. I don’t live in chester, but every time I go I will always visit here - it’s amazing.

a stunning meal, fresh quality ingredients combined in an interesting way to enhance flavours and cooked with a very sure hand. the burnt cheese cake was to die for.

We loved it! We both had the beef Sunday dinner and it was amazing. We had heard amazing things about the roasts so were really excited, and it didn’t disappoint!

Bearing in mind the restrictions on menu and the number of covers the meal, service as ambiance was much as we have experienced before. Always a pleasant experience.

Food was lovely, service was great as always. The atmosphere was only 4 stars because I ate early and alone, not the fault of JB's. Will certainly be dining again.

Our favourite restaurant in Chester... never been disappointed... the recent Sunday roast was to die for ... nothing on the plate could have been improved.

We’ve been coming to JB for years and it was our first choice for the first outing as a couple after lockdown. The new menu was absolutely delicious, we shared the crispy pork special and burrata and both had the lamb chops. The marinated carrots deserve their own mention - perfect side with the chops, not had anything like that before. I went off menu with an afogato for dessert which was done without any hesitation. Wine was fab and service as always was great, very attentive and friendly. Felt completely safe, well spaced out but still with atmosphere enough to relax and enjoy the evening. JB never disappoints, in fact everything exceeded our expectations.
