About The Moorings

As a warm family home since 1841, The Moorings is a true institution of central Chester and certainly where you need to be heading for true British cooking served in a true British way. Much like the history of the building itself, The Moorings menu is proud, no-nonsense and packed with honesty on every page. Breakfast is served until midday, afterwhich the main menu consists of classics like homemade cottage pie and freshly battered haddock fillet. Produce at The Moorings is sourced from a master Chester butcher, a Cheshire dairy farm, a bakery on the Wirral and a family-run green grocers. You’ll find this absolute British gem on The Groves – reserve a table now.
