A fabulous location, beautiful views, amazing food and professional, friendly staff. We often dine at the Red House and have even chosen to spend two Christmas days with our family there. Every time we visit (at least twice a month) we feel welcome and at home. The location, atmosphere and staff all make it an exceptional place to visit...that's even... More

I eat here mostly for lunch on weekends with my family, it has great views across the Dee towards Chester meadows and there is a large garden which meanders down towards the river. The staff are friendly and the menu is a varied selection of tasty Italian dishes, complimented by a nice selection of wines. On this occasion, I had... More

We are a group of 12 who meet every New Year and we chose The Red House for lunch on New Year's Eve. Lovely location looking over the River Dee. The food was excellent and the staff were attentive. Recommend!

Met old friends for lunch - greeted and sat down with view over the river dee. Restaurant was Warm and staff friendly and of course very Christmassy. Great food, wine and coffee. Spend most of the afternoon drinking and talking. Would definitely recommend.

Busy Friday evening with lots of office parties but we were seated straight away. Very attentive staff but not intrusive. Excellent menu. Food served quickly. Presentation of food was so good. The food itself was really delicious and couldn't fault it. We chose off the Christmas menu which had a very good choice at 24.99 for three courses. We will... More

We were booked in for our meal at 1.30. We left at 4.40. The food was beautiful. But the time it took for us to get our food was far too long. The restaurant wasn't very busy so really there was no excuse! Just glad we weren't in a rush. As the food was so good I would go go... More

Only the second place I keep going back to that I've never had a bad meal in. Parking is not great, but still worth the effort of going.

Food was delicous - great selection, tasty food well presented - attentive staff who knew the balance between being helpful but also allowing us to enjoy our meals without being watched over. First visit but definitely wont be our last.

We booked a table for a Saturday night, arrived to find it quite busy but seemed good atmosphere. Unfortunately they must have overbooked and struggled to keep up with the deman, we experienced long wait times, service was rushed and found the Customer service skills of the manager lacking. Food was ok, prices ok, but generally not a nice experience... More

Very competent all round performance. Menu offers a decent choice but is not idiotically long. Wine fairly priced and perfectly drinkable. Great service and lovely views. Can tend to be a bit bright in some sunsets but a small price to pay.
