We were struggling to get in anywhere to be honest, but a quick Google on my phone led us to Duttons and, although they were pretty rammed, managed to find us a table for two. The restaurant is up a narrow walkway so keep on eye on the signs on the walls below the steps. The eating area is separate... More

On recent visit to Chester with friends we went in here for a drink. Shown to a table by friendly staff. Tucked down an alley way opposite the Botanist. Ordered cocktails about average price, mine was very nice have to say. Lots of people eating and the meals looked nice. Waitress service so you don't have to queue at the... More

Was actually heading elsewhere but walked past and it looked inviting. We were 30mins too early for lunch at 11.30. Was seated immediately and order taken quickly. We just had crumpets and jam and a really good parfait with the most delicious fresh fruit, one of the nicest in a restaurant in a long time. Also had coffee, prosecco and... More

We walked past as a table was served their Eggs Benedict so sat down, when the waitress came out we tried to order two of the same but were told that it was now the lunch menu. We had to ask if she would ask the kitchen if they could still do some poached Eggs, she returned a few minutes... More

We met up and found this because it was a bit out of the way. We had breakfast and the service was excellent. The place is nice and comfy for a meet up and a natter. We ended up coming back for lunch and it was really busy. We had a great meal, I chose from the 3 for £12... More

Myself and 10 friends went to Duttons last week for my birthday. I had to pay a deposit as it was a big group but the kind member of staff I spoke to on the phone said we could order on the night which was really helpful. The staff were so accommodating and the food was amazing! Would definitely recommend... More

Went here for a nice family meal, and ordered a selection of small plates. Some of the food was lovely, however there was miscommunication between us and our waitress, so our order ended up wrong. When we asked to have it changed for our correct order, she seemed very annoyed, not the kind of service we had expected. Furthermore, our... More

Hello- thank you for your review on your visit. I'm sorry to read you were disappointed- this certainly doesn't sound like our usual service standard and I will be following up on this to see where some further training is required. I do hope you will consider giving us another try for food next time you're enjoying some cocktails...hopefully we'll... More
