Eat. Drink. Be merry.

But, we don’t think that after experiencing our exceptional dining options, merry will cut the mustard. How about we raise the bar to absolutely delighted?

Our contemporary IX Restaurant is the star of our culinary show. The fine dining venue has enjoyed praise and plaudits and plenty of awards, including two AA Rosettes. We’re friendly, not fussy. Elegant, not posh. Put simply, the IX Restaurant experience is a special one, but not one that should be reserved for special occasions.

If a more relaxed dining experience is your thing, then you’ll make a perfect match with The Gallery. Our newly expanded bar is a lively and vibrant space where the cocktails flow and exceptional bar food is served. Bar classics and tandoor specialities are all given a unique Chester twist, whether you’re enjoying them indoors or in our new outdoor area.

We have a number of private dining rooms, including the Granite Suite – complete with an outdoor balcony – which is the venue for The Chester Dining Club. This monthly meeting of gastronomic minds gathers to contemplate and savour three courses with wine.

Regardless of where in the hotel you choose to dine, you’ll learn that provenance is important to our kitchen team. The focus is on using exceptional Scottish produce – much of which is sourced from the local area – and cooking it to perfection.
