Cheshire Life Review

The city’s most exciting and rewarding gastronomic experiences tend to be independent restaurants tucked away from the tourist areas, to these hidden gems should now be added the Chef’s Table, invisible from the bustle of Northgate Street and St Werburgh Street by the cathedral, but accessed by the obscure back alley that connects the two.

My Daily Review

7 restaurants you need to visit in 2015… Consistently winning ‘perfect’ and ‘exceptional’ accolades from Tripadvisor reviewers, the team at The Chef’s Table take seasonal produce and turn it into downright amazing dishes. Portions aren’t the biggest you could find but the food really is Masterchef-worthy and because of their diehard dedication to organic, seasonal produce (so many say it but The Chef’s Table prove it with their flavours) there’s brilliant choices for veggies as well as meat-eaters. Top dish: It’s tricky because their ethos really does hook off the whole seasonal thing, but if you’re going to read this and book a table immediately, the Mallard (wild duck) is the current menu’s winner.
