As always excellent food. Had the beef roast for the first time there last Sunday. Amazing... No need to say more!! Upstairs at the grill was my favourite, it's now Joseph Benjamin first.

This restaurant is our favourite Sunday lunch destination. The food is superb and the selection of vegetables accompanying the meal is the best in Chester. The food is seasonal and always cooked to perfection. However, there are only 2 options for Sunday "roasts', albeit the...More

Wasn't on the menu when we visited however as the menu changes and is seasonal it may well appear at some time. I'd give the restaurant a call to ask what they are currently offering.
