Undoubtedly, one of the best places to eat in Chester. I'm a big fan of Italian food and this restaurant is simply one of the best. The welcome is good, the staff excellent, the atmosphere is second to none and the food is excellent - you can spend a few hours here enjoying the ambience and stunning views over the... More

After reading all the good reviews about this restaurant we decided to hold a birthday meal here. We were asked by the restaurant to all choose our food ( as 12 in our party) and email this through 2 days before which we did. After being seated this is where it started to go downhill, it took staff 15 mins... More

The location is stunning with a beautiful view over the river yet despite this the food is very reasonably priced. The menu is Italian with a range of pizzas pasta meat and fish dishes & we have never been disappointed with... More

Only downside was we were squashed into corner.... More

A fabulous location, beautiful views, amazing food and professional, friendly staff. We often dine at the Red House and have even chosen to spend two Christmas days with our family there. Every time we visit (at least twice a month) we feel welcome and at home. The location, atmosphere and staff all make it an exceptional place to visit...that's even... More

I eat here mostly for lunch on weekends with my family, it has great views across the Dee towards Chester meadows and there is a large garden which meanders down towards the river. The staff are friendly and the menu is a varied selection of tasty Italian dishes, complimented by a nice selection of wines. On this occasion, I had... More

We are a group of 12 who meet every New Year and we chose The Red House for lunch on New Year's Eve. Lovely location looking over the River Dee. The food was excellent and the staff were attentive. Recommend!

Met old friends for lunch - greeted and sat down with view over the river dee. Restaurant was Warm and staff friendly and of course very Christmassy. Great food, wine and coffee. Spend most of the afternoon drinking and talking. Would definitely recommend.

Busy Friday evening with lots of office parties but we were seated straight away. Very attentive staff but not intrusive. Excellent menu. Food served quickly. Presentation of food was so good. The food itself was really delicious and couldn't fault it. We chose off the Christmas menu which had a very good choice at 24.99 for three courses. We will... More

We were booked in for our meal at 1.30. We left at 4.40. The food was beautiful. But the time it took for us to get our food was far too long. The restaurant wasn't very busy so really there was no excuse! Just glad we weren't in a rush. As the food was so good I would go go... More
