The Chester Bar

27 reviews The Chester Bar

My first visit to The Chester was last week and must say I was very impressed. Delicious (and inexpensive) food, attentive staff, and a very pleasant ambiance. What more could you ask for? I'll be revisiting The Chester next time I'm in that part of town.

Granny Annies

10 reviews Granny Annies

Have had lots of great breakfasts at Granny Annies. I thought I'd try the carvery at lunch time - not so good. Mentioned to the girl at checkout about the gruel type mash potatoes. She said that had I mentioned before paying she would not have charged. Disappointing experience but equally my fault for not speaking up.

The Empire

34 reviews The Empire

Attended the Elvis spectacular last night came out of the downstairs bar with our drinks the bouncer told us yes go round join the queue and you can take ur drinks with you !! got to door of the event and another bouncer was so rude and told us to drink them before we could go in !!! after I told him that the other bouncer let me out with them and that it was there lack of communication with each other he eventually agreed on this occasion to let me in. I think the empire should get there security staff to communicate with each other better and maybe take a course in people skills and learn how to speak to people !!
