The Chester Fields is a stunning Country Pub & Restaurant near Chester set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. We’re famous for our use of local produce, amazing views & bizarrely, the Austrian ski lodge plonked in the middle of Cheshire. Just outside the hustle and bustle of Chester, The Chester Fields isn’t your usual pub and restaurant. You see, we like to do things differently, have a bit of fun & perhaps break some of the rules. Our welcoming converted barn is the perfect setting for any occassion. From cosy couple dining to bespoke weddings and big blow out celebrations. We even boast glorious gardens for Al Fresco dining {as long as the Great British weather plays ball of course!} & our private ski-style huts for drinking ice cold beer are the ideal escape from reality. With great real ales and authentic Austrian Schnapps, there’s no better place to kick back, relax and enjoy the company of friends, family & Nuno of course.
