The Chester City Club

Founded in 1806 as The Commercial Reading Rooms. The Chester City Club is one of only a few surviving traditional clubs still located in their original premises.

In fact, there are only twelve clubs in existence in this country (excluding Scotland) whose foundation dates back earlier than the Chester City Club. Situated in the secluded St Peter’s Church Yard, opposite the stunningly refurbished and highly recommended Commercial Hotel, The Club offers a quiet oasis in the city for members to dine and relax.

Club Opening Times

Monday and Friday – 9am until 9pm

Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday – 9am until 10pm

The Club

The Club provides lunchtime dining in The Harrison Room for members, their guests and members of other clubs with reciprocal arrangements. There is no need to book but if a few people were planning on attending it would be better to let us know in advance.

The menu is a traditional luncheon comprising a selection of hot meals, omelettes, salads and also sandwiches. The menu changes regularly to accommodate seasonal produce and there is also a Friday fish special which is proving very popular.

Lunches are served from 12.30pm until 1.45pm

The club also provides a unique venue for members to have their own private functions. Having been recently renovated, the atmosphere is fabulous and menus can be individually tailored to the functions own needs. Private functions can take many forms from private dining, buffets and also business events.
