The Chester Hotel in Aberdeen has announced its festive experiences for this year -  a wooden Alpine Glühwein chalet from which it will serve a range of seasonal treats and a 'seasons eatings' dining experience.

The Alpine Glühwein chalet will open on 26 November from 12 noon to 10pm, through to Sunday 3 January, closing only for Christmas Day.

The chalet will serve  a range of hearty bratwurst, steak sandwiches, chicken burgers, freshly made crepes and warm cookies along with hot Glühwein, mulled cider and beer from steins.

As well as this, the Chester Hotel team has created a ‘naughty and nice’ drinks menu which includes hot chocolates for the younger guests with the option to add something stronger for parents and adults.

The hotel is also introducing a ‘seasons eatings’ dining experience in The Granite Suite with festive lunches and themed dinner events from Saturday 28 November.

The fixed menus include a glass of fizz on arrival and a glass of paired wine with each course. Lunches are £55 per person with children’s options from £10 for under 5s, and dinner is £80.

Speaking of the festive line-up, owner of The Chester Hotel, Graham Wood said: “We’ve got an ‘adventful’ season full of Christmas spirit lined up for 2020. Everyone needs a festive lift this year especially.

"We’re excited about bringing an Alpine après-ski vibe to the West End with the Glühwein Chalet.

“Our fine dining events lined up in The Granite Suite offer a rare opportunity in 2020 to glam up.

"Sadly, regulations prevent us having background music to add to the atmosphere and we’ve had to furlough Santa for the pre-Christmas period, but we aim to make things as merry and bright as we possibly can.”

The hotel will abide by all rules, regulations and legislation so opening times and start times for dinner may be subject to change.

The Chester Hotel added two luxury marquees and dining domes to their dining offering this summer.
