Went here for lunch whilst in Chester for the weekend with my partner. We both really enjoyed the meal. Service was friendly, the ambience is nice and it was really good value for money. We don’t get to Chester all that frequently, but would have no hesitation in going again if in the area.

The management has changed, but the quality is still excellent in this cute, dog-friendly cafe. Soup and sandwich is especially good value and the cakes are wonderful.

Visited today for lunch and found a hair in my soup. Despite me leaving my soup aside no one came over to ask why. When I went to pay the bill and asked to deduct the soup because of a hair in it the response was "well you should have told us about it". No apology. Kind of missed the... More

Have now visited the Watergate Deli on several occasions. They are very accommodating, have gluten free bread as standard, and can make any sandwiches gluten free that are on the menu. I have taken rather a shine to the pate with gluten free toast as a quick, easy lunch. You get a little glass jar full of pate - about... More
