Since the day we opened our doors 18 years ago, we have been overwhelmedby the support and warmth
you have shown us especially during the time we have been closed.


Our wonderful team have always shown so much dedication & truly poured their heart and souls into making
Upstairs at the Grill one of the longest standing restaurants in Chester. Over the years we have been a part of
countless special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries and took great pleasure in looking after so many of you.


The question on everyone’s lips – when will we be making a return? You may have noticed some building work
taking place over the last couple of months…we are beyond excited and thrilled to finally announce that we will
be back in the new year & we can’t wait to welcome you in to our new and improved restaurant!


We have some exciting plans to transform our iconic home in the Olde Custom House Building whilst preserving
Upstairs at the Grill’s key features so ensure your return is nostalgic. Our team of chefs and bartenders are already
hard at work behind the scenes developing an exciting new food and drink menu that we can’t wait to share with you
… don’t worry your old favourites will still feature!


Keep an eye out for more updates and sneak previews of what’s to come on our Facebook & Instagram pages!


We cannot wait to welcome you all back & we promise it will be worth the wait! 
With much love from all at Upstairs At The Grill.


P.S. We will also be opening on some select dates this December for Christmas parties,
