Square Meal Review of Simon Radley at Chester Grosvenor ?

Erected in 1865, the imperious half-timbered Grosvenor is Chester’s pride and joy – it’s also the perfect luxury-strewn backdrop for Simon Radley’s Michelin-starred restaurant. Occupying a “timeless” pillared room overseen by a veritable battalion of dutiful waiters, it promises big-shot, “über-expensive” food for the smart Cheshire set who come here dressed to the nines. High levels of technical skill and ability are a given and the kitchen plays lots of tricks with the palate – although some have found the results a tad over-rich and “unseasonal”. A starter called ‘obsiblue’ brings wafers of sweet melon, native lobster, scorched prawn and ginger, while ‘Edge’s rare breed’ is pastrami-style ox tongue served with peppered steak, smoked onions and pickles. Meanwhile desserts mix classic patisserie with the odd joke or two (jammy figs with sugar pastry, almond, blackberry and lemon, for example). A monumental wine list also awaits those with deep pockets full of old money.

  1. Simon Radley is a Michelin starred restaurant set within the classical Grosvenor hotel in the centre of Chester. Not short of accolades it is also ranked 47th in the latest edition of The Good Food Guide. We chose the restaurant as a venue for a anniversary meal. Everything about the hotel and dining room screamed classical and traditional in keeping with Chester in general. We took advantage of the Spring offer of the tasting for £59 per head which seemed good value. The bread offering is one of the most extensive we have come across and personal favourites include walnut and fig, potato and brioche...
