Gastro Pub Chester

The Royal Oak at Kelsall is already one of the best gastro pubs in Chester. But now it has an Italian restaurant and pizzeria too.

So now there are more choices of what to eat from the Oak Restaurant menu or a Chicago-style pizzeria called Colosimo’s. And there are private dining facilities for both.

It’s named after Chicago’s original mobster ‘Big Jim’ Colosimo. But this is no ordinary gastro pub food and pizza restaurant. Stand by for some of the best and most original pizzas you have ever experienced – and that includes being a rare gluten-free pizza restaurant for Chester too.

As Big Jim would have said “It’s Italian food to die for.” And he should know. Colosimo, once Al Capone’s boss, had his own Italian restaurant in Chicago - along with a few other (ahem) establishments that no-way were gastro pubs!

But our regular customers needn’t worry. If Colosimo’s Italian food is an offer you can refuse, then we’re still running our Oak Restaurant operation at the front of the building … the usual great menu at the same great prices … but no gangsters. Just a wider choice of gastro pub food that now includes the most imaginative gourmet pizzas, the most original pizzeria and themed Italian restaurant you will ever have visited … and private dining too. And want us to be a gluten-free pizza restaurant? Just ask.

So that means the Royal Oak just got even better by giving Chester a new pizza restaurant. Opening and food service times stay the same – but the quirky Royal Oak atmosphere for meeting friends, eating some of the best gastro pub food, private dining, sampling real ales, fine spirits and world wines, just got a whole lot quirkier.

That’s why the Royal Oak is not just among the best gastro pubs around Chester. It’s now the county’s most outstanding Italian food service
