I visited for a boozy Friday afternoon lunch with a friend. Great service and very reasonable wine menu. We shared a vegetarian platter to start with which I must say was absolutely delicious! Next time I'm in Chester I'll visit again.

An excellent venue for celebrating as a family my parents-in-law's Golden Wedding. 7 of us enjoyed a great lunch. Particular highlights were the Charcuterie Sharing Platter (starter) and the Honeycomb Waffle (dessert). The beer was also fantatstic - local and really well kept.
