The 8 course tasting menu was a delight. The simple and complexities of this journey of food were amazing. The serving staff were courteous, friendly, caring and I would highly recommend this treat for a chance to taste some things that you would not normally view on a menu. You really must go and indulge yourselves.

Last year visited Manchester House, Aiden Byrne. Was expecting the same experience. It wasn't! The food was equal, in quality and taste, but there were less courses on the sample menu. The service last night at Grosvenor was mixed, some team v good smiles, pleasant introduction on each course some team miserable and lacking personality just slapping plate on table... More

My husband booked a meal here as a treat for my birthday. We have eaten in the brasserie before (which has always been excellent) but never the Simon Radley restaurant. We opted for the tasting menu which was amazing and exceeded all our expectations! Each course was served by very friendly and professional staff, and explained in detail. The flavours... More

Booked an evening meal here to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary as we were staying at The Chester Grosvenor Hotel. The service was first class. From the moment we walked into the bar area for pre-dinner drinks, we were greeted warmly and offered drinks with some nibbles (nuts & olives) whilst we perused the menu and wine list. Once we'd...

Took advantage of their recent mid-week offer as they were for the first time offering a vegetarian tasting menu. our daughter rang to check availability and that is was possible for some of us to have the non-vegetarian tasting menu. Of course it was, and on the evening swapping some of the vegetarian dishes for fish dishes off the other... More

Really high-class dining in a stately hotel in the centre of Chester. Expensive of course, but the food, the setting and the service were all superb. A second Michelin star would not be inappropriate in fact.

Well Simon has beaten even his spectacular best. This season’s tasting menu is the best ever and that is saying something. Simply by far the best restaurant in Chester.
