Named one of The Sunday Times’ top 20 places to dine by the sea, Sheldrakes Restaurant offers classic Mediterranean cuisine in a picturesque setting. Enjoy unrivalled views over the Dee Estuary and the Welsh Mountains via floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Sheldrakes menu features dishes like scallops with chicken croquette and pomegranate salsa, or pancetta-wrapped monkfish. Desserts include chocolate fondant with salted caramel banana parfait, and the traditional afternoon tea is also popular.

With a range of specialist wines, beers and local cask ales, and an exotic selection of cocktails, guests can watch the sunset on the terrace with a drink, or venture to the 1st-floor viewing gallery.

Sheldrakes in Ellesmere Port offers live music evenings and a high-tide-dining option. Heswall is the closest station, a 9-minute drive away.

    Great location but was not impressed with having to send a fatty over done steak back and then receiving replacement when my fellow diners had virtually finished theirs...'Simply Shelldakes' means just that!

    Fantastic! We went for afternoon tea to celebrate my sister's birthday. The food was amazing and the service top-class. Beautiful location and we were lucky to have a sunny day.

    Fantastic Sunday Lunch and very attentive service with the most wonderful views across to North Wales

    Our experience was sub standard to say the least. The deal that we had booked was disallowed due to us not having a voucher with us however, when booked online there was no facility or obvious facility to print off a voucher. Your waiter's response to this was simply he didn't know because they change constantly.My main course of pheasant breast was severely overcooked and my sweet potato fries (straight from the freezer) were cold. My pudding of a bakewell slice was burnt which your chef was clearly aware of because it was disguised with a lump of ice cream. If I wanted pub standard food at pub prices I would have gone to a pub. This meal was for my husband's birthday which frankly was ruined.

    It was very good - service was good for a busy sunny Sunday afternoon. Food was great and relatively good value for money for such a lovely location.

    This was my second visit to Sheldrakes and again, I was not disappointed. The fiery visit was for afternoon tea which was impressive. This time, we went for a Saturday afternoon treat. The restaurant has a fantastic welcoming atmosphere with log fires burning and cosy lighting. Staff were attentive and very professional, taking our coats and leading us to a window seat to take in the fantastic views over the water to Wales. We had the miniature game pie and cod cheeks for starters- both were absolutely delicious! We then shared a chateaubriand- medium rare and cooked to juicy perfection. This was served with mega crispy chunky rustic chips and veg; really tasty. We then chose desserts- chocolate, hazelnut and cranberry brownie and sticky toffee pudding- great portions and gorgeous. After requesting a big break, we then had a cheeseboard and coffee. Every course was delicious and well presented and portion sizes were perfect. We are already Looking forward to our next visit!

    One Rump steak (at £20 each!) asked for medium, came well done. £15 Burger very dry, chips soggy. Waiters very attentive at table though. Left £10 tip for service and not even a thank you from bar staff. Looked at receipt later and realised we had already been charged £10 service charge so a bit of gratitude would have been nice!
    Very warm inside, lots of rosy cheeks due to the heat. Made for a very uncomfortable meal.
    Vegetarian Wellington very nice. Desserts also lovely. Shame really as we had heard such lovely things about sheldrakes. We didn't send dishes back as we had small children with us so didn't want to delay food coming out. My mums fav restaurant too and was a meal for Mother's Day. Sadly a Disappointing experience.
