“Exceptional”, conscientiously sourced dishes and “friendly staff” (plus second-hand cookery books, craft beers and superior cocktails) have made a big name for this low-key yearling, in a discreet city-centre passage; the “only downside is that it’s a little too crowded”.

"A real find. Imaginative dishes excellently cooked so they emerge as exciting. A simple, oriental soup that is made magic by popped chickpeas and pomegranate. Grilled octopus that really taste of the fish. Wood pigeon wrapped in bacon and accompanied by gnocchi to absorb the flavours. Deserves more fame."

"This is a bit of a hidden gem down a side alley in the centre of Chester. A small intimate venue with a brilliant menu and very Instagram friendly dishes. Booking is advisable."

"Wonderful meal, both my starter of a raviolo of Oxtail followed by hoggart were perfectly cooked and had great depth of flavour. The trio of woman who looked after us was really helpful from start to finish."
