The Grosvenor is always a treat on a visit to Chester but I hadn't eaten in the Simon Radley before and it was superb. We had a business lunch with delicious food, appropriately attentive service and an informed sommelier. Thoroughly recommended.

The service is distinguished by its warmth and professionalism. Top marks.
