Life Under Lockdown would be an awful lot worse if we didn’t have some really good restaurant food to look forward to – and here at WLGT we love to Dine In at the weekend – so we’ve created a Dining In on a Saturday guide to make life a little bit easier, so all you guys need to do is decide what you fancy and get your order in!
Its also really important that we continue to support our local and independent restaurants as much as we possibly can, they need us now more than ever.
Who doesn’t absolutely love Hickory’s? Their now-famous curbside menu is available Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and seeing as we are totally addicted to their delicious chicken wings – we’re pretty chuffed! We also tried the beef brisket and maple ribs recently, and are very happy to report that it was all excellent. And the best thing? Your kitchen smells just like Hickory’s!
Oh, and a little birdie has just told us (Facebook!) that they have now included their legendary Cotton Candy Cocktail on the menu. Bloody Brilliant!
The Chester Fields Country Pub & Restaurant
The Chester Fields are well known for many good things, and for me, their consistent use of the best local produce is right up there. Chef Helder is a total superstar – he champions great quality produce from his doorstep, and it really shows in his cooking. The Chester Fields oozes quality, and their Ready to Heat – From Pub to Porch range is as good as you would be served in the restaurant itself, and we’re looking forward to doing exactly that as soon as we can!
This Saturday we are recommending Helder’s Home Baked Lasagne (£12.00) filled with Martin Platts minced beef, smoked pancetta & confit heritage tomatoes, enriched in a deep red wine jus, layered with spinach and topped with creamy cheese sauce. Sounds amazing!
Bells 2 Go from Ring O Bells, Christleton
We love the Ring O Bells for many reasons. This is a proper dining pub located in one of the prettiest and best kept Chester villages – and their food is superb! Chef Andrew King is one of the best, and the team here has won so many awards, and thoroughly deserved too.
Friday and Saturday 4pm til 9pm – Pizzas, Burgers, Fish & Chips
Sunday 12noon til 7pm – Pizzas, Burgers, Fish & Chips plus locally sourced Sunday Roasts

As its Saturday, its absolutely fine to enjoy a bit of a treat, and we can highly recommend everything on the menu today, especially the Flat Iron Steak with Chips. The portions are a good size and we think its really good value, plus it tastes so good …
Since arriving in the city last year, Da Noi on Bridge Street have been seriously impressing their guests with Chef Valentina’s fabulous authentic Italian cuisine. Choose from the most divine menu including starters, mains, desserts and wine, and find out for yourselves why they are featured in the Michelin Guide. We’ve dined with this adorable couple on many occasions and its been amazing every time.
Their takeaway/delivery menu has been a roaring success and we think it is amazing that you can enjoy Michelin recommended food delivered to your door.
Today we are fancying their Beef Tartare, a gorgeous and very traditional Piedmont special: succulent beef tartare served with a quail egg and mustard. Yes please!
The Black Dog
We were lucky enough to dine from The Black Dog for Phil’s lockdown birthday – and it was excellent! We had rump steaks with the best chips in the world and the children had the most fabulous burgers. They are now serving Afternoon Tea, Brunch Club, Fine Dining, Children’s fun meals and so much more, but today we’ve got our eye on their Pizza & Prosecco deal – 2 handmade pizzas and a bottle of Prosecco delivered to your door for £25.
Many of you have been very impressed with The Handbridge Gastro Pub’s new delivery service – and if you love pub classics, you need to support these guys this weekend and every weekend (Thursday to Sunday).
They’re offering free delivery to Handbridge, Curzon Park, Westminster Park, Saltney & Hoole. So let’s all go Off To The Bridge without leaving our front room this weekend
Today we would recommend their Crispy Beef Salad (Flat Iron Steak bites in a sticky Asian sauce served with crispy noodles) followed by Sea Bass Fillet (Pan-fried fillet served with buttered Pak Choi and a creamy white wine dressing) with their Chocolate & Raspberry Pyramid to finish off (Pyramid of dark Belgian chocolate marbled with white & dark chocolate centred with raspberries).
Our prayers have been answered! Chip’d Chester are now delivering – and their dips are divine!
We love chips, you love chips, everyone loves chips! That perfect chip is a real treat but can be so hard to find with so many bland, watery, frozen, tasteless chips around. And that’s exactly why we love Chip’d in Chester
They use a variety of potato which is recognised as the best in the Netherlands, and they use the Dutch twice-cooked method, using a state of the art Dutch range and they top their chips with 17 tasty Dutch sauces.
And they’re delivering! Whoop!
Lots more local restaurants and producers are also serving today;
And we’re also very pleased to report that The Faulkner and Chez Jules also launch their takeaway menus this month, so watch this space for more details.
And that’s not all!
What about Drinky Poos at home?
Exotic Booze Club are still delivering their fabulous Fresh Cocktail Pouches complete with ice and tiki-tastic garnishes (the feedback we have had about these is off the chart!)
Chester Beer and Wine have a fabulous selection of beers, we asked Sam for her recommendations too and we got a mixed box of some really great beers. That Beer Place in Chester Market have reopened their doors recently too which is great news, as these guys also stock some pretty cool beer – perfect for a sunny weekend afternoon in the garden!
