This venue is permanently closed. Find other nearby venues.

The 1699 Brasserie is the in-house restaurant for the excellent Townhouse Hotel in Chester. An intimate space with just a few dozen seats, it’s a relaxing, elegant room with an equally graceful soundtrack of instrumental music. The aim is to bring relaxed fine dining to the city, something a city as storied as Chester certainly deserves.

The waiting staff are second-to-none, engaging when they need to be, and never obtrusive. If you listen hard, you can hear the kitchen staff proudly announce each creation – as well they should, the food is exquisite.

The 1699 Brasserie is the restaurant Chester deserves. This is modern British cooking fed through with a depth of knowledge and history – a cut above the average meal out.
