The Alchemist Chester


The Alchemist on St. John Street in Chester is a place of pure theatre, consequently a stone's throw away from the ruins of the famous roman amphitheatre. 

Head inside for a truly unique drink menu which is guaranteed to wow and surprise. One of the favourites of the infamous Alchemist cocktails is the 'Bath Bomb' where you can drop a punchy strawberry flavoured concoction into the drink and watch it fizz away in this delicious gin and peach based cocktail.  The 'Bubblebath' cocktail is equally bedazzling, as you watch your drink grow in size with a fragrant bubble explosion.

The venue boasts an all day dining menu of classic favourites with an Alchemist twist. Try the 'Alchemy Fish & Chips' with striking black charcoal batter or the guest favourite 'Sizzling Fajitas' which will certainly hit the spot. Or enjoy a delicious weekend brunch before heading into the city centre. The menu boasts a wide range of world inspired cuisines with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. 

So, step into the Alchemist copper cased wonderland and experience their world of "theatre served".

Why not try their Le Freak disco brunch? Every weekend from 10am-2pm, enjoy three cocktails and any brunch dish for £25. Make it bottomless to keep the drinks flowing for £10 extra.

You can also take part in the molecular madness with masterclass packages, setting the scene for the perfect party. What's more, they have launched their 'Wizard's Apprentice' masterclass for children. Excite your youngsters with a touch of science and wonder. Ideal for a get together, let the kids loose in conjuring mock-tail potions full of magic and mystery. For £20 per child, their Alchemists will walk the group, step by step through creating concoctions guaranteed to charm and entertain. Delicious kid's bento boxes will be served to satisfy their growing appetites!
