Just turned up on the off chance and was found a table, we were told at weekends they are usually booked up. The meals were superb, the menu was amazing with choices for every type of person. Veggie, vegan and us who eat anything. The clean modern decor and really friendly staff will definately mean we will return.

My wife and I dined here last weekend. The menus were magnificent. The staff were very friendly and the ambience was good. My wife needs gluten free food and she enjoyed the meal so much we have booked to go again this weekend.

Came for an evening meal because we had heard about the vegan menu. My daughter is vegan and I am vegetarian, so it was nice to have some choice. Most restaurants have very little to offer vegans. Even had some nice vegan wine. Only just found out that wine is often filtered through fish bladders called finings ugh!! Nothing amazing,... More

Visited the Chester Arms yesterday. We visited back in March and had such an excellent meal we decided to revisit. Another reason for our revisit was the excellent service we had from Ben back in march who couldn't do enough for us. We didn't get quite the same welcome from the staff member this time but the food again was... More

I visited here with my family a couple of days ago. The service was excellent, and we were greeted with a smile. Our food was prompt. I was the only vegan in the party, and I must say the menu is impressive, and the primary reason we picked the pub - it's so nice to go somewhere where you can... More

We had an incredible meal here, 2 vegans and 1 vegetarian and plenty of choice. Not only is there an entirely vegan menu including 4 options for each course, but dairy and gluten free alternatives plainly stated on the menu. The meals were simple pub grub, no fancy vegan alternatives but very flavourful and hearty food. Having sampled several of... More

I have just eaten a really enjoyable vegan meal at this very pleasant pub as part of a Mothering Sunday treat. There is a wide choice with lots of interesting flavours and not a nut roast in sight! I would recommend this restaurant for both vegans and carnivores! It is well presented with pleasing decor and very good service.
