Parent company Mitchells and Butlers has applied for planning consent for signage at its Chester steak house. And a premises licence application seeks opening hours of 7am until 12.30am Monday to Sunday and the sale of alcohol and playing of recorded music between 10am and midnight.

The Chester outlet will complement existing eating and drinking facilities at Abode hotel and The Architect and may help HQ function better as a building.

Miller & Carter says it serves the finest 30 day aged steak, using both wet and dry ageing techniques, ‘to provide the optimum succulence and flavour’. There are 12 steak cuts to choose from; including a 30oz Longbone Tomahawk, Fillet-on-the-bone, and an award-winning Sirloin steak. Each is individually hand cut by in-house butchers before being ‘grilled to perfection’ by specially-trained chefs.

The menu features a number of non-steak cuisine, such as BBQ dishes, burgers and fish, as well as vegetarian options.
