It can be a little overbearing at times but the food generally is outstanding. Some dishes don't work for me but most are good and clearly a lot of effort is made. It's expensive but not super expensive for what it is.

I don't think jeans appropriate probably trousers and long sleeve shirt you could always call them and ask for their advice

Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor, has held a Michelin star for nineteen years running ��� surely a record outside of London. Under the direction of Executive Chef Simon Radley the exceptional modern British menu changes seasonally and uses only the finest ingredients. The cellar is also renowned, having one thousand bins and a sommelier of prodigious knowledge. The dining room itself is as dashing as you would expect with comfy chairs, oriental carpets, fine woods, original artwork, ebony pillars and many-layered tones of gold and taupe. The service is distinguished by its warmth and professionalism. Top marks.
