A Chester city centre restaurant has unveiled its new look.

The Coach House Inn on Northgate Street has seen many changes since the original pub was built in the 19th century – although records show there has been a pub on the site since 1644 – and its latest refurbishment has been completed.

The current owners took over the restaurant in 2007, when it was fully refurbished to create a huge dining area, and the kitchen was moved to the old stable block from the building’s coaching inn days.

They also renovated the upstairs of the property, creating nine luxury bedrooms.

The latest refurbishment came courtesy of The Trustland Group, the owners of the business, and guests and staff have expressed delight with the new look.

Elisher Dean, general manager of the Coach House Inn, said: “At The Coach House, we are very proud of our heritage and the history of the building, and this refurbishment does a great job of creating a modern bar and restaurant, while maintaining a strong link to the traditions of the past.”

The new look was unveiled to VIP guests at a special launch, where guests sampled food The Coach House head chef James Cooke provides.
