Restaurant 1539

Chester Race Company Limited, The Racecourse, CHESTER, CH1 2LY

1 rosettes

Part of the Chester racecourse complex, 1539 was given a cool half-million's worth of upgrade in 2014. The full-drop windows of the restaurant are still a major feature, and if your heart isn't given to equestrianism, swivel round for an ambient view into the kitchen. It produces up-to-the-minute brasserie cooking, ranging from ham hock terrine with crushed peas and bacon in mustard dressing, to mains like well-timed roast cod with a brown shrimp risotto in red wine reduction, or honey-roast breast and confit leg of duck with braised red cabbage in orange and port jus. Desserts court the popular vote with dark chocolate tart and salted caramel.
