Busy and bustling, with a lovely atmosphere. We had barely noticed, but we waited a little longer for one of our sides and it was taken off the bill without us even asking. Fantastic, friendly service and yummy food!

Since moving to Chester, this was the first restaurant we went to and I can happily say we've been coming back regularly ever since. In fact we've spread word of this place to everyone who we run into, to the point we might have stereotyped ourselves as only consumers of grilled cheese sandwiches in the same manner Garfield is known for lasagna.. On another note, the thing that made us fall in love with this place was their fresh lemonade funnily enough. Maybe it was needing some zesty refreshment after a morning of unpacking that meant it really hit the spot but personally it's a firm favourite of mine. Highly recommend!

Melt town is bloody amazing - the food is banging, the staff are lovely. Feeling those cheese vibes.

Laura held our table for almost an hour because we were running late (on race day, too), and when we arrived so was absolutely bloody lovely.

I had to take my leftovers home because I was a little bit hungover 😂 the seconds later on was worth it though.

The food and drinks were amazing, service impeccable. Nothing I could say bad about Melttown. The servers were really friendly and offered us speciality cocktails and offered me free stickers. 100000000/10 such a nice way to spend an afternoon with a friend.

So nice to have somewhere different to try, really well looked after. Can tell the staff love the job, they know menu and recommendations inside out. Refill coffee topped up without requests. Can't wait to come back.

Absolutely loved our first visit to Melttown. We had a baby and toddler with us. The staff were so accommodating. There was a high chair ready when we arrived. They gave so much attention to my little boy, giving him a sticker and colours to play with. The food was absolutely brilliant, they offered different bowls for my little boy so he could eat a little bit of what we were. We had to take some home as we were completely stuffed! Love the use of space in the cosy restaurant. We’ll definitely back.

Newly opened, no sign of any teething problems. Next level up from the mother restaurant - Meltdown. Excellent service and top quality food and fast food prices.
Well priced and very welcoming team.

Big fan of Meltdown in Handbridge so was very excited when I heard about Melttown! The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely as were all the staff! Laura’s hospitality is unrivalled as always. The restaurant was spotless and nicely laid out and I like it that you can see the chefs cooking away, really nice touch.

The food……🤤 Jesus. Check out their Instagram if you haven’t already. It really is as good as it looks.
