Visited Chesters with family - not been there for many years now since we moved out of the area, but the family still visit there frequently. The restaurant has a small pre-drinks/post meal area which is very pleasant and though the restaurant itself is not large, it is well laid out and not restrictive. The menu was just wonderful -...

Another high quality dining experience from this long established restaurant. We were in a party of four, we all had different food and all four were top notch. The only criticism i would have is that it went a bit chilly later in the evening.

As usual the food was of a high standard. However, for some the service was painfully slow yet there were only 12 people in. Also the place was very cold.

This is a good restaurant, professionally run, the food is always of excellent quality. I had roast lamb and my wife had pork, both superb..The sweet trolley is something to die for, The value is good too £58.45 for two including wine for the set menu, but adequate choice. The only slight drawback was a noisy child, not always welcome... More

Really enjoyed our lunch here-the restaurant (including food/staff/wines) has not disappointed me for quality in 20+ years of visiting. I took my choices from the fixed price menu-pineapple & melon with chilli oil, salmon with couscous including veggies, dessert & coffee. Very very nice indeed (& good value!) A bit poignant- his first birthday since my Mum passed away-they both... More

Visited with my partner and her parents. All I can say is the food is the best you are ever likely to get in a town like Macclesfield, prices are very fair for the very high standard of cuisine, my meal was an explosion of great flavours served by attentive staff who were polite and professional at all times. Highly... More
