When I think of a Bistro I think of something different that what we experienced when we went to Chestergate Bistro. The trouble is I don't know what that is. Chestergate Bistro was most things I like about a restaurant, good atmosphere, not too loud, nice surroundings, and the 2 most important things which are the staff and the food... More

Went for lunch and had an amazing risotto wth truffle oil and a pork belly dish - yum and as always the prices are great. They also had a set Christmas menu on that looked great.

Another visit to our favourite bistro, 6 of us having a post Christmas catch up. Yet again, wonderful food, excellent house wines in a lovely place with great staff. Last night I had pate and lamb in red currant sauce followed by vanilla panna cotta - every mouthful was to die for. This place just gets better and better.

Was a little concerned that this was an 'haute cuisine ' style restaurant ....me being a more of a quantity rather than quality diner. However, our host could do nothing more for us, the food was delicious and the best testimony I can leave, is that I didn't need a kebab on the way home. Pate was excellent and the... More

A freezing cold day really warmed by well presented appetising food The meal was of good portion ideal for a lunch, with the usual bistro choices. The slight downside is the lack personal touches of interaction between staff and customers! Hopefully the temperature and the atmosphere could be raised. This is clean (5 hygiene rating) and only slightly above average... More

Went in on the off chance of a seat on a Friday lunchtime. Me and my friend were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to a table. I went for a steak and mushroom wrap with garlic sauce and salad. My friend the same but with chips instead of salad. Hands down the best wrap I've EVER hd the... More

A bistro (small, inexpensive restaurant) that serves a small range of tasty starters/mains/desserts. We had the lunch menu which offered generous sized main dishes that were very tasty - for an astonishing £4.50. They also have a specials board and it was from this that my wife had mussels and chips. Friendly staff, great food, well positioned in the town and lovely clean washrooms! We've been before and will definitely go again. Finally, this place has owners that can make it work - well done to them!
