Chester is a favourite day-trip destination which allows visitors to admire the sites and catch up on plenty of shopping.
From horse racing to guided tours, Chester has a lot to offer the day-tripper – in fact, probably too much for one day, so you may need to check out the sites beforehand and choose your route for the day!
To help in your choice, try checking out the info at the official tourist information website.
There are plenty of options for moving between destinations if you haven’t arrived by car, for example Chester taxis (see http://www.chestertaxiservice.co.uk/). For your lunchtime break, the following is a list of the ten best budget places to eat in this historic city.
An authentic US barbecue restaurant situated on the banks of the river Dee. The décor is nothing to write home about but the food is great, with a large range of sandwiches before 5 pm.
A stunning warehouse conversion on the banks of the Shropshire Union Canal. The daytime menu is good value and served until 3.30 pm. Weather permitting, there is outdoor seating along the edge of the canal.
If fiery Mexican food is your taste then this is the place for you. Great meals for about £7.
This restaurant serves traditional fish and chips in a modern venue. You can either eat in or take away.
La P’tite France
A typical, small French bistro offering a limited but affordable menu.
The Old Harkers Arms
Another canal-bank venue that is fashioned as an Edwardian pub. Its feature is its freshly cooked food and it serves a good range of traditional ales.
Kash Tap Rooms
More bizarre décor, this time from the 1970s. However, the range of food from burgers to burritos is delicious and affordable, as is the beer.
An Indian restaurant that serves southern Indian food at reasonable prices.
Only 10 minutes from the railway station, Deli Vert sells a range of homemade items produced throughout Cheshire. Lots of delicious food and a great place to pick up all the ingredients you need for a picnic.
Situated in Hoole, from noon to 5pm this pub serves a limited lunch menu of a meal and drink for just £7.95.
Enjoy your day out in Chester!
