See title - only breakfast now served here. It is not operating as a restaurant so this should be removed from Trip Adviser as the reviews on here are about the hotel and are confusing.

Wanting somewhere local within walking distance we decided to try the newly refurbished Dene restaurant within the hotel. The bar is about to be refurbished, but there is an excellent selection of unusual bottled beers available as well as the usual gassed beers and lagers....More

Situated in the Dene Hotel in the historic Roman city of Chester, Castra takes its name from the Latin for fortress, serving a strong selection of smart, modern brasserie classics. The bright and airy restaurant has a cosy, uncluttered feel, with sturdy contemporary furniture and a period beamed ceiling. Local ingredients feature heavily on the menu and the blackboard specials, with dishes such as grilled swordfish with avocado and lime salsa or rack of Welsh lamb with a rosemary jus.
