Chester is a true Food and Drink paradise with something for every palate, the list below is some of our favourite top quality places in Chester that are all walking distances from the racecourse. They cover many different types of food and venues and by clicking on to the name you will be taken to their website.

Hickorys – a great family Southern American style diner on the river. Fab indoor and outdoor seating and they show all the sports in their sports bar area, from all over the world.
Brasserie Abode – Spectacular views of the city from their 5th floor Bar and Restaurant. Great food and they do outstanding meal deals. Take a look at their entry on Taste Cheshire and check out their special deals.
Bar Lounge – at the top of the road 3 minutes walk out of the racecourse and Chester’s number one bar for the last 15 years. Great service, great drink, superb outdoor area and fab bar snacks.
Burger Shed 41 – In Bridge St, 5 minutes walk to the city centre. Specialises, as the name says, on Burgers but do great hot dogs. Its a good family eaterie and quite trendy in a shabby chic kind of way. Kids will love it. Food tastes great and very reasonable price.
Urbano 32 – Bridge St – 5 minutes walk. They specialise in authentic pizza and Italian food. Has a bar kind of feel to it but great service and really tasty food that is the real deal. Great offers as well.
The Ship Inn – Handbridge, the perfect pub to take the dog for a walk. Firstly they welcome dogs, secondly you can walk to the far side of the course, follow the path by the river back under the big bridge and then over the Old Dee Bridge where the Ship sits on the other side of the river. It will take 5 minutes of flat walking on a footpath and it is ohh so scenic. Good beers, good food and good prices. Perfect for you and the pooch.
The Suburbs – As the name implies this is out of the city centre in Hoole, but its just £5 in a taxi. It is a great bar with great food. Take a look at their reviews on Taste Cheshire. These guys do it as well as Bar Lounge and regularly win Best Bar awards.
The Faulkner – This is Hoole’s best pub. Again £5 in a taxi. Huge range of beers and wines, pub prices, outstanding food at all levels, pizzas, sandwiches, lamb roasts, etc. Great service by people who care.
