We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon Tea at The Grosvenor Chester, and would recommend it to anyone who has a ‘Special Occasion’ to celebrate. First Class

a very nice afternoon tea with excellent service, this was bought as a gift for us and as such was thoroughly enjoyed , however I consider it pricey for what we received.

We had an absolutely perfect afternoon. There was no sense of being hurried through; everything was relaxed and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The service was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive (and we were a party of 8). The food was excellent and we appreciated extra portions being offered, although this was just us being appreciative as the portions were already generous. Once again, it was superb.

A delightful ending to our stay was the delicious afternoon tea served within the relaxing atmosphere of The Arkle Bar & Lounge where attentive members of staff provided excellent personal service. We shall return soon with American friends so that they may enjoy this enjoyable experience.

I came with my sister and brother-in-law to celebrate my sister's birthday. We had the Afternoon tea, and it was superb. The ladies and gents waiting on were very attentive and polite, even down to the candle on a cake. We will definitely come back again. Thank you so much for making her day feel special.

Slow, inattentive service in a stuffy, old-fashioned atmosphere. Service was truly terrible.

Lovely afternoon tea experience. Plenty of very delicious food (and more if wanted!) and the service was excellent. The only small issue we had was that, although the coffee was served in very nice antique pots, it did not keep the heat, so by the time we wanted a second cup, it was already cold. Having said this, the staff we all too willing to replace as often as we wanted.

We really appreciated that you could accommodate us with our young baby in an area separate from other diners. It meant we could bring him along as we celebrated our anniversary without worrying about him disturbing other guests. All the staff we met during our stay were impressive in the quality of service they delivered and Antonio in particular went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you for the ‘Happy Anniversary’ chocolates on the cake plate, they were a lovely thought.

What a fabulous afternoon we had. Where do you get your staff ? They were amazing. Especially the young girl who took us to our table. Outstanding service. Delicious patisserie. Sandwiches were lovely and fresh and although the fillings were tasty and classic I would have liked something a little different. Overall a real treat
