Visited the Sticky Walnut tonight with friends. Lovely ambiance and feeling warm and cosy on a December evening. Great start. As the evening progressed I felt less content. Above average prices...but that's ok, Saturday evening out, happy with that. Starter; non plussed. Not sure where the ricotta had gone!! Main course, the lamb was delicious but not much else on...

We try and have lunch here every month on our family visits from Kent to Chester. The food is superb, the service is excellent. I'm very envious of my sister who lives walking distance from your Didsbury restaurant. I expect I'm expecting too much to get one in Canterbury? Carry on you are great!

First time we have been, why has it taken us so long. Fantastic food, full of flavour, well presented and just the right quantity. Service was also excellent, with a clear knowledge of what they are serving. The wine list is just right, an interesting selection at a range of prices to match the food. It is not a huge... More

Consistency in the quality of food and the level of service guarantees we come back here on a very regular basis. We are a critical family, but at Sticky Walnuts there is nothing of worth to criticise. Saying that, to the eye, there is never enough on the plate, but in all honesty you don't leave hungry! I have already... More

Having failed to get a parking space at Cheshire Oaks (stupid idea anyway) we decided to find a nice place to eat. We used Trip Advisor as we don't know Chester at all. What a lovely place. The food was amazing, the staff were welcoming, pleasant, attentive and knowledgable. The food was all fabulous, we had the beetroot and ox... More

Great to have Sticky Walnut and Burnt Truffle within driving distance. The menus at Sticky Walnut are short, adventurous and rewarding and amazing value for money, particularly for lunch. There's not many places where you can pick things you never normally would, but this is one of them. The celeriac and truffle soup I had yesterday was the perfect antidote... More

We went in mid-week and tried the 'Early Doors' menu. We were not disappointed but impressed with the food, service and value for money. Starters were grilled Bream on pickled fennel; and Roasted beetroot, sticky walnuts and ricotta. Both delicious and well presented. Mains were Pork Chop with caramelised chicory; Roast Cod. Again well presented and excellent. Honey comb ice... More

We came on a Monday, primarily for the Early Dinner Menu, from the recommendation of a friend. Always a bit sceptical about these offers as sometimes the service, and food can be a bit rushed. By far not the case...I'd say it was the yummiest food we'd ever had here, having eaten here a good few times! Wine was perfect,... More
