Michael Caines dining lies at the heart of ABode Chester, our brand new hotel developed on the site of the former Cheshire Constabulary headquarters and located at the gateway to Chester.
ABode Chester (now open) is our first new-build property. As such, it enables us to define literally from the ground floor up our fullest and most all-encompassing concept and vision of ABode hospitality. 82 Comfortable, Desirable, Enviable bedrooms and 3 Fabulous sixth floor suites offer the best accommodation in the city, combined with Michael Caines dining concepts that will really set Chester alight.
The Michael Caines Restaurant offers Michael's award winning modern British cuisine in a stylish setting with fantastic views over Chester and the surrounding Welsh hills. The Restaurant has seating for 76 with a further 26 covers available on the outside terrace. In addition to the à la carte and tasting menus, the Restaurant features "grazing menus", whereby smaller portions of dishes from the à la carte menu can be enjoyed in either the Restaurant or more informally in the Champagne Bar. The MC Café Bar & Grill, located on the ground floor, offers informal and delicious food and drink throughout the day and evening, from coffee and homebaked pastries, to full à la carte dining. In the evenings, the ABarMC is a late night lounge bar that is certain to become one of Chester's favoured venues.
Chester is an historic city located on the site of a Roman fort founded in 79AD and later fortified by the Saxons. The walled city retains a number of important medieval buildings as well as heritage from the Industrial Revolution which led to the city's substantial development, expansion and prosperity. With its distinctive black-and-white architecture and features such as its two-level medieval Rows (considered amongst the oldest shop fronts in the country), Chester remains one of the most welcoming and atmospheric small cities in England. Chester Racecourse, directly opposite ABode Chester, hosts regular race meetings starting with its famous May Festival.
