Went here with my wife on our anniversary and we were amazed by the place. The atmosphere, the service, the food, everything was just perfect. Tried the tasting menu (very good value thanks to lower price on tuesday and wednesday) and it was beyond our expectations: star absolutely deserved

I've been reliably informed that attention to detail and nothing but perfection commences from within the heart of this kitchen were chef and his team then insist the same philosophy must transcend down naturally to service and the delivery of each dish. You would think from that description it would be plausible to suggest that a supercilious manner or environment... More

Visited the Simon Radley restaurant for the tasting menu. The experience was excellent. Fantastic service, very nice food and the bread selection was like nothing we have experienced before. My only regret is that having had the tasting menu I was not able to sample the fantastic selection of cheeses that I had been admiring all evening. I am sure... More

Once a month myself and friends visit the Grosvenor for afternoon lunch. A fantastic place. However the past few times the service when trying to order a drink and food have been appalling. The past 3 times we've grinned and beared it. One for example. We've just finished our drinks and lunch, and 40 minutes of waiting after finishing our... More

My husband and I visited Simon Radley's this week to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was perfect. All staff were friendly, the restaurant is beautiful and felt very relaxing, the choice of drinks is fantastic and the tasting menu was exceptional. The staffs attention to detail is something I've never experienced anywhere else and we cannot wait to return!

What a fantastic 8 course taster menu we where served in a beautiful room with great atmosphere. From arriving to having our coffee & petite fours in the lounge the service was attentive but not overpowering and the sommelier advised us on a lovely wine to accompany the meal. The only criticism for me was the pigeon leg on the... More

I went for dinner with two old friends, one of whom is slightly deaf and specified that I must choose a restaurant quiet enough for him to be able to enjoy a conversation. I could think of nowhere better in Chester than Simon Radley, which has soft furnishings, no background music, and the quietly reverent atmosphere of a great cathedral.... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, it was our second visit. From the moment you get there you are looked after by the staff, some of whom were there the last time we went which was lovely. There is absolutely nothing negative to say about the restaurant. All the staff work exceptionally hard, even the ones you don't see to... More

There’s much to like about the restaurant. There’s a nice bar to sit and have a drink while you read the menu and scoff the nibbles. The chairs in the restaurant itself are comfy. Staff are both efficient and friendly – a tricky combination to achieve when you’re quite a formal restaurant. And there’s an interesting menu. Now, that’s “interesting”... More
