Review of The Brasserie - CLOSED

The Brasserie
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Just outside of Chester in the attractive village of Beeston, The Wild Boar hotel is a popular spot for dining outside of the city. The Brasserie, with its chilled out Parisian vibe, feels entirely cosmopolitan despite its location within the walls of a Tudor-style building complete with low beams and provincial outlook. Comfortable leather banquettes and huge floral prints are joined by monochrome photography on the walls and huge windows letting light flood in to the room. With ingredients sourced entirely from British suppliers Chef Nathan Watts the menu is a classy modern take on homely favourites with an international flavour.

Starters.....Confit boneless chicken wings..........where were they? The portion was so small it became a joke, literally three small mouthfuls for almost £7. The warm tartlet was much better value and nice. The burger was massive so this made up for the chicken wings, very tasty, a huge pile of chips enough to feed an army!! Maybe a look at portion control would be a good idea as the starter was ridiculously small and the main was far too big. Overall a decent meal in nice surrounds at a reasonable price. Staff very friendly, looked overworked.

Not the cheapest but the most expensive. Not too large a choice of menu items which is disappointing. The setting was stunning, very clean and well laid out. Service was excellent, staff very attentive. Good size portions. Shame about the cost of the deserts which are over priced.

We were staying at the Wild Boar & decided to dine in The Brasserie on our second night. There was a limited choice menu not the full menu advertised on the website or in the information folder in our room. This appeared to be down to the fact that it was August Bank Holiday Monday - perhaps staff were limited that day?
That said there were dishes that we liked the sound of & indeed enjoyed immensely. Smoked salmon for me & tagliaitelle for my husband. We both opted for the "catch of the day" for main - halibut on this occasion, which was beautifully cooked & accompanied by crushed potatoes & samphire. We had also ordered a side of steamed vegetables, but just before our mains arrived the waitress informed us that the only veg available was samphire & peas, the chef didn't have anything else! Rather surprising to say the least & something that we felt the waiting staff should have been told by the kitchen to pass on at the time if ordering. Even so how a hotel kitchen can run out of basic veg escapes me. We ordered a cheeseboard to share but the panicked look of the waitress left is fearing that they had run out of this as well. Thankfully not - it was worry that chef had left for the night, lucky for us she just caught him and the cheeseboard was great - ample for two. The little hiccups aside it was a delicious meal & prices are good.
