The Moorings

A warm family home since the early 19th century, first owned by the Dodds, a family of boat builders with a side business selling smoked hams and bacon. From one boat builder to another, Capner bought the home and the business towards the end of the 19th century and transformed their front room into the café that the people of Chester have known and loved ever since.

Everything on the menu is exactly the way you would expect it to be, with no hidden surprises and no trendy flourishes. They’re English dishes served in a uniquely English way.

The Moorings know how great their menu is and they know how rich the history of their building and their surroundings is, so how could they possibly communicate with their customers in anything but a confident, proud and straight talking, yet still grounded manner?

They are proud of their history – everything that they are, and everything that they've been in the past. The team hope that you enjoy your visit.
