Lewis, our waiter, was a delight. He managed our paired wines for the fabulous tasting menu with great knowledge and insight. The head chef has obviously moulded his team (waiters and chefs) into a well oiled machine that produces an excellent product for anyone that books at Woods, Chester.

Staff were excellent and food very high quality. Unfortunately there is a disconnect between the restaurant/bar and hotel which meant that as hotel guests we were not able to charge drinks or the food bill to our rooms, meaning having to pay after each round of drinks with cards which is not the service I expect from an establishment of this reputation. Please sort it as it was embarrassing for my friends and myself

We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine flight on the January 2 for 1 offer - great food and great value with the offer. Unfortunately the restaurant was pretty empty on a post holidays Thursday night which meant the atmosphere was really just what our party generated. But we had a lovely meal and the staff were excellent as ever. This was our fourth visit and we’ll certainly come back again.

We really enjoyed our Sunday Lunch meal very much indeed. The quality of the food was wonderful. In fact amongst the best roast beef dinner we've ever tasted. We couldn't have had better service either. In the end the beill was higher than we had anticipated which is mainly our fault because we hadn't been careful with the extras (drinks and coffees) and service charge (which we would have paid anyway actually. So all in all a very lovely meal so thank you.

Booked into hotel Indigo in Chester and to enjoy Wood. Im a frequent patron of Wood Manchester which I highly recommend. However I found the experience of Wood Chester disappointing in comparison . The vibe was not the same , the serving staff were polite but didnt describe the food with any enthusiam and little check back . Maybe because it was over the christmas period the staff were temps but felt like a normal hotel restaurant would feel rather than a bespoke dining experience the Manchester restaurant offers. Food was to the usual yummy standard but serviice and ambience below par. Shame because hotel is unique funky and fabulous .

We dined at Wood on NYE and had the 7-course tasting menu with wine flight. The food was great and the wine pairings were delicious. Ambiance was nice but the position of the live singer was not ideal as we couldn't even see her. In terms of service, we expected a lot more from a fine dining restaurant - no complaints about the individuals who served us, but overall the evening felt under-staffed - with ill-timed waits between courses and a 20 minute wait at the bar to get a pre-midnight drink. I would visit Wood again, but not on NYE.

Thank you so much to the whole Team at Hotel Indigo. All went above and beyond for us on New Years Eve, where they surpassed themselves due to our circumstances. The housekeeping ladies were lovely and very obliging, Olivia, Rachael and the Chef really looked after us on both nights and made us feel very relaxed and welcome. Thank you for making the start to our 2020 amazing. Highly recommend. Faultless. Thank you x

I enjoyed the meal but on payment I added a £10 tip based on 10% of the bill, which the waitress cashier was aware of. However I think she might have posted out that a service charge had already been included in the bill. I was not at all impressed with this. Also, the mark up on the wine is excessive.

The meal and service were absolutely faultless. We had the 7 course tasting menu which was exciting, intriguing and exquisitely presented. The flavours were perfectly matched and we will definitely return. Thank you.

We had our Christmas party at Wood, and with 47 people we pretty much filled the whole restaurant! The service and food was amazing even with the large numbers. A lot of my colleagues mentioned they would be coming back with friends and family it was so good.

I had an extremely enjoyable meal with family at Woods. The presentation and taste of the food was of the highest quality, with the whole group of 5 leaving very satisfied with what they had ordered. The additional tasters offered were a nice touch and included flavours some of the group might not have tried from the menu. They were pleasantly surprised. The service to the table was attentive, informative but never intrusive. I will be back shortly for the taster menu.
