Joseph Benjamin 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 new theatre, library, cinema and arts centre.

The restaurant was opened by the Wright brothers, Joe and Ben in 2006 and started life as a 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 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 awarded a Michelin Guide ‘Bib Gourmand’ each year since 2012.
