The Cheshire outpost of the ABode hotel group occupies a shiny modern rotunda overlooking Chester racecourse. Its restaurant, the main dining option, is on the fifth floor, with stellar views over the castle and lush countryside. There's a contemporary finish to the space, with stylish fixtures and rather glam light fittings. The various menus take a classical approach with contemporary touches along the way. Roast quail comes with herb gnocchi and truffled egg yolk in tarragon jus, while main courses bring on salted cod with caramelised cauliflower and raisin vinaigrette in cumin velouté. Finish with lemon tart and confit lemon sorbet.
