– Independent & local –
We ARE a true independent restaurant in the heart of our beautiful city Chester.
We’re extremely proud of being independent and local. And as a 30 seater restaurant with a little, but passionate team of incredible individuals, we are small in all meanings of the word. We work tirelessly to create and deliver ever-changing seasonal menus across the year.
We scour the land to get our hands on the best, most interesting produce available to us. We work with suppliers who care about their produce as much as we do, and share our vision. For example we source our microherbs and salads from Jan & Kevin Dobbs at Growing at Field 28 in Daresbury, our meat from specialist butchers Udale, and our cultivated mushrooms from sustainable organisation, Fundamentally Fungus. Read more about the origins of our produce here.
We love supporting local businesses too - that’s why we work with That Beer Place and Covino, to source the best beverages and collaborate with other people doing wonderful things.
We care about the environment and wildlife. So we’ve worked with suppliers to ensure that where palm oil is present in our food, it is sourced from sustainable sources. By doing so we are helping protect wildlife around the world from the impact of unsustainable agricultural practices. This is part of a Chester Zoo campaign to make Chester the First Sustainable Palm Oil City in the world, and in 2019, we achieved it. You’ll see our ‘Sustainable Palm Oil Champions’ window sticker when you visit. We love supporting local campaigns which share our ethos.
We’ve only been open since 2014, and since then have achieved and learned so much. We remain loyal to our ethos, our originality, our customers, and what they have come to expect from us. Most importantly, we to continue to challenge ourselves to deliver the finest, most creative food in Chester. In our restaurant, and at our private and ticketed events.
Our story of the ups and downs of creating and running our independent restaurant and events company successfully in Chester. Honest, funny, and just a little bit sweary - what you see is what you get with us! Huge thanks to Canteen Create, the creative agency who made this for us. #makechester
