Dine Out

A foodies’ paradise is just a few steps away from the door of The Chester Residence. From classic dishes to experimental cookery, no matter your favourite cuisine there’s something nearby that is guaranteed to delight and surprise.

For the best steaks in the city, there’s only one choice: the magnificent Kyloe, led by award-winning head chef John Rutter; for elegant brasserie dining using the finest local produce, it has to be Otro; or for something a little different – with a menu that features lots of locally foraged fare – try Forage & Chatter.

If you’re willing to travel a little further, try a decadent afternoon tea at The Dome or the famed Indian-inspired breakfast at Dishoom. For Michelin-starred excellence, you can’t go wrong in Leith at the divine Restaurant Martin Wishart or the celebrated The Kitchin.

Raise a Glass

Whether you’re after a cosy pub to while away a few hours or somewhere to spend the night sipping creative cocktails, Edinburgh’s West End is the place for you.

For stunning cocktails like no other, the modern speakeasy Panda & Sons should be your number one destination; while fans of craft beer and cask ale should most definitely make a beeline for the charming Teuchters Bar.

Gin lovers should make sure to stop by Heads & Tales to sample some of their incredible cocktails – as well as seeing the home of Edinburgh Gin – and those interested in whisky simply must visit Usquabae, a sleek and stylish basement tavern.

Cheeky Night In

Want to make the most of the sumptuous surroundings of The Chester Residence? Then you need never leave your apartment! If you feel in the mood to try out our contemporary kitchens for yourselves, we can have every ingredient you require delivered to your door. Or if you’d rather put your feet up and let someone else do the hard work, there are plenty of fabulous restaurants in the nearby area who deliver via Deliveroo (and our own continental breakfasts are available every day of the week for the morning after).

If you’re not quite feeling up to a full meal, but still find yourself rather peckish, be sure to check out our food and drink packages featuring the finest artisan snacks and drinks, available to book before you arrive or during your stay.
