Came here for afternoon tea on Saturday. Couldn't fault anything from start to finish it was all amazing. From being greeted and sat a busy but controlled restaurant, I couldn't have felt more comfortable. The menu was explained from page to page and was even told that I could have coffee if I didn't like to selection of tea. I...

Went with friends for a special birthday celebration, the occasion wasn't recognised by the staff not even a birthday wish. The afternoon tea was disappointing, we had heard good reviews, but the finger sandwiches were dry, and lacked filling, the cakes weren't nice. The scones were delicious. China cups would have been nice, tea tastes better in China cups however...

Friends had previously been to Oddfellows for a delicious cream tea. Unfortunately when we arrived, neither the staff in front or behind the scenes were concerned whether they served good food or good service. We were seated in the restaurant rather than in the lounge bar, which was not conducive for a cream tea. We had pre-booked, so they were...

We have just got back from a stay at Oddfellows for my husband's 40th birthday, and had a lovely time. The reception staff were always helpful and friendly, as was the barman who greeted us in a warm and professional manner, making us a lovely cocktail each. He even offered to make something which wasn't on the cocktail menu if...

Stayed for week on business and was really looked after! Rooms were really lovely and clean with AMAZING lampshades! Looks like they have just been refurbished. I stayed in a classic room so I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised! Hannah on Reception was very helpful, especially when I asked for assistance printing some documents. I wanted to check...

We visited Oddfellows and booked last minute as a holiday abroad had been cancelled (due to air traffic control strikes) and booked the suite located in the loft space with the 2 bath tubs. We were meant to be having a romantic break in Barcelona to celebrate out engagement and whilst I understand that Chester is a huge compromise, I...

I love quirky as long as it has the modern slant! As a result, a birthday afternoon tea at Oddfellows was perfect! We were certainly a demanding bunch- one on a high protein and no carbs diet, one vegetarian, one child and two 'normal eaters'! They pleased all of us! All the staff were eager to please and I enjoyed...
