Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor, has held a Michelin star for nineteen years running ��� surely a record outside of London. Under the direction of Executive Chef Simon Radley the exceptional modern British menu changes seasonally and uses only the finest ingredients. The cellar is also renowned, having one thousand bins and a sommelier of prodigious knowledge.

Superb taster menu, accompanying wine didn't quite make it

Chose the taster menu which we've had at quite a few other places and the 'dishes' were novel and delicious, really well put together, first class ingredients cooked to perfection. We also took the wine that goes with each dish and were pleased to see they offered the more temperate of us half the... read more

We stopped at the Grosvenor and as part of the ultimate dining weekend which included a meal here. I have to say we were a bit apprehensive about going as not used to this kind of thing. But have to say we had a wonderful time. The staff were excellent, very friendly and really put you at ease, whilst still... More

We ate at the Simon Radley whilst staying at the Grosvenor. The food, wines and service were impeccable. Having eaten at other Michelin starred restaurants this was by far our favourite. We cannot recommend it highly enough. This is most definitely a first class restaurant.

It was our 4th wedding anniversary and we heard of this restaurant so we decided to book. The gentleman that took the booking ( i think his name is Jamie) was very helpful on the phone asking if it was a special occasion. The table was booked for 8.00pm and i was told to come half hour before so could... More

Really fabulous, we had the taster menu & were looked after perfectly. Although the portions were small, we were given 2 choices of beautiful home made bread - after we had eaten it, our table was brushed clean of crumbs! It was our anniversary & they even made special chocolates for us wishing us happy anniversary :)

From start to finish, possibly the best meal ever, service professional and yet warm. Food excellent and savoured every mouthful, ok so there are no windows, but it's a wonderful comfortable place to eat a meal. Wines chosen with the sommelier to complement our meals were excellent. Have every intention of dining here again

I'll be brief. The restaurant is bunker-like without windows,the staff highly professional but without any warmth, and serving us in a rather perfunctory manner. It was all a bit 'sixties' Rather than sit down to lunch immediately on arrival, we elected to have an aperitif at the bar. Staff seemed a bit irked by this and had it not been... More

Cocktails excellent, fabulous food. Highlights were the cheese selection and the steak. Service impeccable, décor not amazing and ambience bit flat but the food made up for it.

I was given the fine dining experience as a gift. The food was stunningly good as was the service and surroundings. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a special place to eat.
