Description: 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. The dining room itself is as dashing as you would expect with comfy chairs, oriental carpets, fine woods, original artwork, ebony pillars and many-layered tones of gold and taupe. The service is distinguished by its warmth and professionalism. Top marks.

We have tried a few restaurants of this kind and I must admit this didn't look like a Michelin star place. - Atmosphere was ok with no music - Staff were excellent and presented dishes, bread and wines with professionalism - Bread was great with a huge and interesting variety - Taster menu dishes were excellent for a pub but...

Fantastic meal and staff. Restaurant wasn't fully booked, so a bit of background music would have been nice, however, I would definitely recommend the taster menu for a special occasion.

We were staying at the Chester Grosvenor for our wedding anniversary and thought we'd try this restaurant. Very glad we did. The food was wonderful; enough choice but not too much and absolutely delicious from start to finish. Service also superb- just right, not at all snooty as some of these places are. The best meal we've had for ages... More

The food and staff excellent as always. A very enjoyable lunch in Simon Radley's, followed by the afternoon in Arkles lounge. The restaurant and lounge were quieter than usual, however this did affect the overall experience. The staff are very attentive, however not over the top. The menu, £55.00 per head for lunch was excellent value for money, with 3... More

Food and wine impeccable, adventurous and interesting. Be prepared for more unusual dishes such as pigeon and offal. Desserts, huge bread board and cheeses were all knock-out. Our only reservation is that the staff are overly attentive. If the table conversation is lively they should perhaps time their interruptions more sensitively. Sommelier impressive.

Booked for my wife's 40th and we were not disappointed. We chose from the a la carte menu and the food was excellent as was the service. Interesting combination of food and very tasty. Well worth a visit and would definitely return if in Chester again.
