A Greek restaurant which puts a modern twist on good old-fashioned classics in thoroughly instagramable surroundings is the latest dining establishment to fling open its doors in Chester city centre.

Launching for business in the former home of Moules A Go-Go on historic Watergate Row on Wednesday (July 6), the Olive Tree Brasserie is unrecognisable from its predecessor with its rustic but contemporary interior, new layout and bona fide olive tree standing proudly in the centre of the 164-cover restaurant.

It boasts two bars, booth-style seating and private dining areas.

Director Dean Wilson said: “The Olive Tree is a relaxed, stylish dining environment which serves a modern twist on Greek and Mediterranean food.

“Attention to detail has been paramount for the restaurant since the start of the project and we hope the stunning new look will provide the perfect backdrop for our Greek and Mediterranean menu.

“We have enjoyed recruiting locally and training the new team alongside some of our experienced team members from our Preston and Lytham St Annes restaurants."

The Chester branch is the third in the Olive Tree Brasserie fold, with popular venues already in Preston and Lytham St Annes.

Dean explained that Chester ‘felt like the right location’ for the next site.

“I love Chester, it’s a really nice city and has a great community feel.

“We’ve had lots of happy customers so far, and are looking forward to getting into a routine.”

Introductory offers will run July 10 to August 14, and the official opening night – featuring live music and VIP guests like soap stars Ryan and Adam Thomas – will be held on July 21.
