The food was beautiful, the staff were very friendly indeed. The place was lovely and clean. They also have a good sized car park to the rear of the place. I took my immediate family to dinner (ten of us) and we all had the four course meal. We all had a great time & I took a personal family...

Had lunch here on December 29th, food was top class service was a little slow but well worth the wait, lovely atmosphere and homely open fire, will definitely pay another visit. Staff also very efficient considering they were so busy.

Had a family dinner, service was poor from the start, we ordered starters and a child's main course which took 20-25 min to arrive. When we got the starter the children's order still had not come out. I ordered a 10oz burger for the main which was awful and very expensive at 16 euro. Will defiantly never eat hear again..

Visited Chesters last weekend and I was blown away! What a renovation. It ticked all the boxes and we had a great experience. We ate in the restaurant, the food, atmosphere and staff where all superb. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. It's a must visit.

Visited the Chester Beatty last Saturday night, what a transformation... brilliant atmosphere, friendly staff and terrific food. Had the pleasure of meeting the owners who showed our group around and couldn't have been more accommodating.
