Whatever the event you have in mind, the 1539 Restaurant & Bar at Chester Racecourse represent great value for money and is an ideal facility for smaller groups .

On Family Fun Day Sunday 2nd August, a traditional four course Sunday Luncheon will be served instead of the Five Course A la Carte Menu.
