2020 is a year like no other!

It's all change again - nothing like change to keep you on your toes!

From Friday 9 October until Sunday 1 November we will be:

  • open from Wednesday to Sunday only
  • serving food and non alcoholic drinks indoors from 12 noon to 6pm (last table booking 4pm)
  • serving food and alcoholic (and non alcoholic!) drinks outdoors in our open sided marquee from 12 noon to 10pm (last table booking 8pm)

Sorry - but our domes will be unavailable from Friday 9 October.

We'll be doing our absolute best to give everyone their fix of Chester style in a hygienic, sanitised and socially distanced manner. But please do note that if you book in our marquee that there will be no sides on the marquee. We need to open this up again to comply with environmental health regulations ... and we can't heat fresh air! Please do dress appropriately - you have been warned!

We’ve introduced our Autumn 2020 Gallery menu - The Blank Canvas and we’ll be serving food from noon with last orders at 8:00 pm outside and 4pm indoors. Last orders for drinks outside only will be at 9:30 pm, before we close at 10:00 pm. It's a condition of our licence that all guests leave the premises by 10pm so please do help our staff to ensure we're complying with this. 

We’ve had to make a few changes and you’ll find we’ve introduced some new booking terms and conditions which we really need you to read as they form part of our booking conditions. Most importantly, you can only currently visit in a group no bigger than six - and any group can be made up of no more than two households.  Face coverings must also be worn as you enter and move around the marquees and the hotel.

Cash is no longer king in 2020 – its reign has been over thrown by contactless payments and card payments only. You must wear a face mask at all times when you are not seated at your table. 

You can ONLY make a booking online - which is in line with Scottish Government advice as we now have to keep a record of your contact details and your visit date. So, please do not come to the hotel hoping to get a table without a reservation.

Your booking will be for a fixed one hour and forty-five minute reservation to allow us to sanitise before subsequent guests – so set an alarm on your phone as if you’re late for your start time we won’t be able to extend your visit – we will still require the table back at the original time.

Our bedrooms are now open for booking once again - from Wednesdays to Sundays.

Things will look and feel different but we are committed to ensuring both our guests and team members are safe and secure. This will take precedence over speed and efficiency. 

We have enhanced cleaning protocols, new methods of operating in all areas and we would ask that you work with us to ensure that we can all enjoy the gradual return to normality and to enjoy a great experience when you are with us.
