Chester Restaurant Joins Forces with Roman Tours

With a firm belief in field to fork gastronomy, The Forge in Chester has earned a reputation for taking a traditional approach to modern British cooking. With a dedication to sustainability and homegrown produce, its first-class chefs source ingredients from the rich bounty offered by the English countryside and use century old methods to prepare and cook them.

With a passion for the past, its perhaps unsurprising that each Wednesday the Forge partners with Chester Roman Tours. The weekly offering is called “Roman Tours of Chester and Lunch at the Forge” and offers diners a chance to work up an appetite with an informative and engaging walk around the city with a difference.

Those who indulge in the original dining event will be transported back to the days when Chester was one of the biggest Roman fortresses in England. The tour is led by a knowledgeable guide dressed authentically as a Roman Soldier, who will share Chester’s celebrated Roman heritage with fun facts along the way.

After the 90-minute-long tour, all taking part can sit down for a well-earned rest at The Forge, with a sumptuous three-course meal to replenish their energy. The restaurant’s set lunch menu is loaded with choice including Chicken Supreme, Blythburgh farm pork chop and BBQ Cod loin as mains, and tasty desserts like date sponge and lavender and thyme Crème Bruleé.

The Forge is located on Grosvenor Park Road in Chester, but the tour begins at Chester Town Hall at 12 pm.
