Dining in Chester
Are you planning on dining in Chester this summer?

Here at The Chester Grosvenor, we offer a range of dining options, from indulgent afternoon teas to exquisite tasting menus.

This month, we’re sharing details of our luxury options for dining in Chester:

Dining in Chester: Dining at Arkle

Our celebrated Executive Chef, Elliot Hill, and his talented team offer an exciting tasting menu, offering our guests the chance to sample our delectable seasonal dishes. 

Elliot's creative flair shines through in his cooking, as he combines fresh ingredients and inventive flavours to create a unique array of dishes. 

The tasting menu is available from Tuesday to Saturday, with a different pricing structure for different days. Arkle is also available for exclusive hire for those wishing to have a personal and private dining experience.

Dining in Chester: La Brasserie

La Brasserie at The Chester Grosvenor is a 2AA Rosette restaurant, offering modern, fresh and classic lunches and dinners. Our chefs design the menu using ingredients from both home and abroad. They expertly combine familiar and unique flavours to create a range of exquisite dishes.

Open for both lunch and dinner, La Brasserie offers casual dining, midweek lunches, à la carte, and a Champagne Sunday menu. We recommend booking in advance; contact our team to reserve your table.

Discover our Delectable Afternoon Tea Options

In 1830, the Duchess of Bedford inadvertently invented afternoon tea, after experiencing hunger pangs in the late afternoon. She retired to her room, requesting that someone deliver a tray of tea and bread. This soon became a tradition in Britain (mostly with women who would use it to curb their hunger whilst they waited for the men to return home from work).

We served our very first afternoon tea here at The Chester Grosvenor in 1852 - and have been delighting our guests with variations ever since.

We serve traditional afternoon tea, an Indulgent Champagne Afternoon Tea, a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea, and a Gentleman’s Indulgent Afternoon Tea. The variety of options ensures that there’s a dining experience to suit each of our guests. The Drawing Room is also available to hire for private afternoon tea experiences for up to 14 guests.

Our traditional afternoon teas offer a selection of sandwiches, scones, pastries and fancies, served with your choice of tea. The indulgent package also includes a glass of Champagne, served with clotted cream and strawberries.

Our Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea offers a twist on the classic menu. In place of traditional sandwiches is coronation chicken on spiced curry bread, haddock bloomers and French onion tarts. The indulgent option includes a refreshing glass of gin and tonic.

Whether you're spending quality time with a loved one, or are celebrating a special occasion, our afternoon teas are a wonderful treat. They're available Wednesday to Sunday; we recommend booking in advance.

Private Dining in Chester: Private Dining

The Westminster Suite has flexible spaces that can cater from 30 to 200, or the luxuriously comfortable Arkle restaurant is available for private hire for parties of up to 40 people. Our executive chef, Elliot Hill, will prepare an array of mouthwatering dishes, and our sommelier will then help you pair each course with a complementary wine. You can choose which wine you’d like from our extensive collection of over 700 bins.
