Fabulous food at reasonable prices and the staff were really friendly. We visited the Sticky Walnut today for a quiet meal out. The food was absolutely amazing. The butternut squash salad was delicious and the blade of beef simply melted in the mouth. For desert I would highly recommend the honeycomb ice cream.

Took my wife out for her birthday as the restaurant had been recommended. We were not disappointed. We were shown to our table straight away, service was really friendly and fast. We had the early bird menu which was very nice. The food was served quickly and was delicious. All 3 courses were superb. They even brought out a plate... More

The Sticky Walnut is an excellent small restaurant in Chester. It does everything from the food to the atmosphere to just the right level without going overboard in complexity or ambition. The food is all excellent in flavour and presentation. The whole restaurant is very clearly quality over quantity from the size of the portions to the physical number of... More

We went there recently and met by friendly courteous helpful staff. For starters we all had asparagus and duck egg which was excellent in taste especially the pickled mushroom . Mains was grilled fillet of plaice with a superb sorrel mayonnaise, finished off with the sweet being an excellent Jamaican cake and cream . Thoroughly recommended

We booked Sticky Walnut for dinner on a visit to Chester following the reviews on this site and were not disappointed. The place was very busy on a Thursday evening and is clearly a local feature. For visitors, it is a little off centre and can involve a longish walk. The menu is eclectic and features interesting combinations of ingredients,... More

We visited Sticky Walnut on the back of TA reviews whilst in Chester, it's in a quaint little borough of Chester called Hoole with nice little independent coffee shops. We didn't order starters but did have some olives whilst waiting. I ordered the pappardelle pasta with fennel, orange and asparagus a strange combo but I thought I'd give it a... More

This intimate, charming restaurant will make you feel at home straight away with their very friendly, helpful staff. Food was delicious and superbly cooked; I had a main dish of plaice which was cooked to perfection with superb vegetables. The three of us shared a dish of stunningly tasty Jersey Royals as a side order. House wines were good and... More

We came here after so many rave reviews. And I'm pleased to say we very much enjoyed our visit. We sat at the 'chefs table' which was lovely, but the bar etc was behind so I felt a little in the way of the fridges etc. However he food was spot on! Not huge portions, but the quality was top...
