The Dining Experience at Chartwell Colonel Belcher in Calgary
At Chartwell Colonel Belcher, we want your dining experience to be delicious, nutritious, and enjoyed along with friends. Whether you’re sitting down to a tasty meal in our dining room or gathered around the table in our private dining room for a catered meal with your family, you’ll benefit from flavourful dining options prepared by our award-winning chef. Similarly, if you’re having a casual conversation in our bistro with a freshly-prepared snack or enjoying pub food in “The Mad Trapper” during big sports games, our food service team always strives to deliver an experience that leaves you feeling content.
In addition to delicious daily features incorporating seasonal fresh ingredients—often locally sources by our fresh-food supplier—you can select from standard crowd-pleasing favourites on our à la carte menu, should you wish to enjoy something different. Aside from our wholesome entrée options, you can expect a choice of daily, made-from-scratch soups, salads, a selection of fruit, and homemade desserts to complete your dining experience.
Service is just as important to us as the quality of our meals at Chartwell Colonel Belcher.
