I booked our table as last time we went the meal was lovely (even if the restaurant was too hot). However this time the restaurant was extremely hot and we all felt uncomfortable whilst eating our meal (we did mention this to the manager). The waiter spilt a full glass of white wine all over my friend and her young baby, and only offered a coffee as compensation for this. We were too hot so left before she could drink this. In addition, I explained my 1 year old had a diary allergy. It transpired that last time we were in he was actually given a wrap that contains milk. Luckily he doesn’t have a type 1 allergy that would mean he needed urgent medical attention. I’m highlighting this as many people with a diary allergy have serious reactions. I am lucky my sons allergy means he has digestive problems only, and not something more serious. Will be very reluctant to return after this negative experience.

It’s a lovely place to dine with excellent service and a family friendly atmosphere. After visiting a few times the chef will occasionally not complete the menu and miss things off your meal if they don’t have it in and nobody will tell you about it.

Waited for an hour for starters. Food presentation not fantastic. You shouldn’t book so many race goers if you are unable to cater to a reasonable standard.

Staff were really lovely couldnt do enough for us. Atmosphere was awesome it was a race day though and we had won so that helped. Food was average though chips were nice but the burger was awful. If you got that burger in McDonalds you would be annoyed never mind here.

Couple of minor issues with service (chef forgot the chicken in the chargrilled chicken sandwiches!) but resolved. Cost is a little high for the portion sizes but quality is good.

A lovely meal after the Races. Service a bit slow, perhaps because of the large demand. Excellent value.

Service was poor, made to feel our booking via the website was an inconvenience. They couldn’t find our booking on the system, food was rushed, portions were small - only a few fries with our steak. If you’re wanting to take advantage of the treat Tuesday, there are nicer places with outstanding service in the city.

Service was very poor. Only 3 staff in bar and restaurant. We sent starters back as not cooked and one main pizza was half the size it should have been. No apology or even drscountvoff bill. Had to ask for empty glasses to be cleared. Chased drinks orders several times. Waited over an hour between starters and mains - joke. Will Not be returning

I can’t thank you guys enough for how accommodating you were for the baby shower you hosted for us on Saturday. Of all the venues I phoned in Chester leading up to the occasion you were the only one happy to accommodate a group of 30 people no problem and in the most beautiful setting. Special thanks to the wonderful Beth, Petra, Siobhan and Barney for helping set up and make everything look amazing and for helping to clean up afterwards. There was also a gentleman with dark hair who I know I spoke with on the phone and on the night who was so polite and attentive. We all haven’t stopped banging on about how great you lot are!! Will definitely be back again. 10/10 xxx

Really quite disappointing. Underwhelmed by the food and how this was presented. Fed back to the manager and racecourse generally via email as this fell short of what I feel the "Chester Racecourse Brand" is seeking to portray. Fell well short of a "gastropub" experience. The menu and food descriptions drew us in to book, but sadly the experience did not match this.
