Came for food and cocktails whilst visiting Chester. The cocktails were amazing and priced well, and the food was fantastic! Staff were friendly and reasonably attentive to say their was a big party table, and our food came quickly. Would definitely come back!

Every single member of staff I spoke to at the venue or over the phone was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Particular thanks go to Night who made sure the party went without a hitch and was fantastic! Thank you so much- we had an... More

As a big group of 11 we had pre ordered our food. The food came out in 5 minuet intervals and 2 of the meals were incorrect. The chocolate cake was a slice of a finger! You'd expect more than that. Also when we were given the bill it had meals on there non of our table had. Poor service.

I think it is a "Ladies who Lunch" place in the daytime but also busy weekend evenings. Both our hosts, Dave and Robert, were a really good advertisement for the restaurant.... More

So have been coming here for years, and whenever I arrange to meet friends for food Dutton's is where I will always recommend. Today has left me underwhelmed, firstly I don't eat salad, so when I ordered the Dutton's burger and said I would like to substitute the salad with coleslaw our server said it comes with coleslaw so I...
