This independent, 30-cover restaurant in Chester is the brainchild of local chef Liam McKay. Sourcing is a priority at Chef’s Table with 90% of veg supplied by the Natural Veg Men and a list of fully local and British suppliers for everything else. They also commit to using only sustainable palm oil.
But when it comes to what’s actually on the plate, the confident European-influenced creations are anything but worthy. Expect a mix of the familiar – such as homemade focaccia, chicken wings with blue cheese sauce, roasted lamb rump – and the unexpected. Salt-aged duck with honey and lavender peaches, for example, or crispy frogs with pea hummus and broad beans. Food you’re really going to want to eat, at an excellent price.
Lunch at Chef’s Table is good value (typically under £20 for two courses) while a clever wine list and casual, woody interior make good times inevitable.
