The touches of racing memorabilia spotted around the hotel demonstrate how proud we are to be situated next to the oldest racecourse in Britain. The impressive racing post mural in the bar takes you back to fabulous memories of race days. The subtle tones and modern twists give The Stables Bar and Grill the opportunity to embrace their history in a smart and contemporary way. We offer an eclectic menu of food and drink in an elegant setting overlooking the Welsh Hills.

    Very small selection on the main course menu. They did not have all the food items indicated on the starter menu. Starters and main course were all delivered to the table together by 3 waiters, requiring us to send the main course back. Although there was only one other occupied table in the restaurant, the waiters mysteriously disappeared and it took an exceptionally long time to get the attention of staff for drinks and the main course. Food was unexceptional and we now understand why the place was completely empty at 2pm on a Sunday. We will not be using the place again.

    We enjoyed the Jubilee lunch on Wednesday. Good quality food and generous portions. The children loved the pasta and chocolate brownie with ice cream. The face painting, painting pebbles and crown making activities were a big hit with the children. A big thank you to the kind, helpful and thoughtful staff. The staff are your jewels in the crown.

    Not sure I want to share how good this was in case we can't get a table again. The service was great. All the staff very friendly personable and attentive. The food was lovely. The special had just come out. We had 2 courses each and 2 large glasses wine for 39.99! Great choice. Lovely setting. Will definitely go again even for Al a carte. I loved that the wine with special menu wasn't just house wine. Choice of at least 5 white or red. Excellent value service and tables. We had a booth for 2!

    We booked the Stables for a meal to celebrate my mums 60th whilst on a break in Chester. It took a while to find as Google maps was trying to send us further down the street and coming in the rear entrance of Crown Plaza wasn’t great for signage. Once we were seated however it was an amazing experience, our waitress Diane was extremely friendly chatting to us making our 7 year old daughter feel special by talking to her about her day. The food on offer was amazing with good sized portions, unfortunately the lamb and salted caramel torte wasn’t available however the alternative pork cutlet and sticky toffee pudding were more than an ample replacement, they were divine. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

    Staff were very pleasant and attentive. We chose from the specials menu, 2 meals and a drink for £39. I had pate' and sea bass, both of which were full of taste and flavour, excellent highly recommend.

    We waited 30 minutes before we were asked if we wanted a drink and then we had to wait a further 20 minutes to receive it. We were given them complimentary due to the inconvenience. Food was overpriced for the quality.

    Rib eye steak was the worst I have ever had - it was as tough as old boots - ruined the whole meal - so don’t eat it. Wouldn’t trust any replacement - if a chef was willing to serve that then he/she cannot be relied upon. It is a hotel restaurant - not identified as such in the Opentable listing - so no one seemed to be able to deal with the fact that such a bad meal had been served. It looked to me like someone had bought really cheap meat instead of the proper stuff - I don’t think you could do anything with the grade of meat used other than boil / casserole it.

    Lovely venue for my wife’s 50th birthday food was excellent and staff very polite and professional, only thing I would complain about lack of service on drinks, waited 40 minutes for our first drinks and then an average 20 minutes on further drinks. If the service was better on the drinks it would of been better. Will go back

    Really sad to write this - had great reviews and we were glad to get it. Maybe it was first day out of lockdown? Food coming was really slow and acknowledged by several staff to us. Ordered steaks which were quite pricey but looked worth it. Steaks overcooked, lots of gristle on and probably not worth half of what we paid. Another one of us ordered a burger - the bun was hard the burger was dry, I don't usually complain (and we never) but £24 for steak and £18 for burger you expect a decent meal. Cocktails were very good, staff nice. Won't be going back
