Welcome to Joseph Benjamin!

Our bustling little restaurant can be found nestled against Chester’s famous city walls on Northgate Street, and is a two minute stroll from Storyhouse, the city’s brilliant theatre, library, cinema and arts centre.

My chef-brother Joe and I launched Joseph Benjamin in 2006 and it started life as a tiny 14 cover restaurant-café-delicatessen. Space for a few more seats was added in 2009 when neighbouring premises became vacant. The operation has evolved, brilliant people have joined the team, but a love of warm hospitality, good food and drink – prepared simply and honestly – remains the backbone of the business.

JB’s (as it’s known to its friends) is open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday to Sunday and for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Joseph Benjamin has been lucky enough to be awarded a Michelin Guide ‘Bib Gourmand’ each year since 2012.

We look forward to seeing you.

Ben Wright.
