Where to Eat Sustainably Around Chester

In recent years, Chester has earned a reputation for its attitude towards sustainability. In 2019, it became the first ever “Sustainable Palm Oil City in the World”, and those seeking to dine out with an eco-conscious approach won’t be disappointed either.

Based in the heart of Chester, The Forge Restaurant is recognised as one of the best eateries in the city, supplying unrivalled service and sumptuous food. However, there is more to the menu than meets the eye. All dishes listed have been carefully crafted and infused with their creator’s passion for sustainable and wild ingredients from Britain.

Led by Dan Regan, Head chef at The Forge, a young team of vibrant chefs work the kitchen. They combine sustainable fresh ingredients from both sea and land to make truly memorable eating experiences. The team’s firm focus on British ingredients means produce is sourced from Chester and its surrounds whenever possible.

For instance, the venison cooked over charcoal fires is harvested from the herds of nearby estates, where they are dedicated to improving biodiversity and promoting deer health through a process referred to as “Farming the Wild”.

Seafood served is always British, like hand-dived scallops, Menai oysters and Cornish brill caught on the line. To support its stance on sustainability, The Forge only uses farm produce from suppliers who can prove the highest welfare standards are followed.

From resident Cestrians to those visiting the historic Roman city, anyone looking to eat sustainably in Chester can enjoy simply cooked sustainable dishes at The Forge, which can be found on Grosvenor Park Road.
