Myself and two friends have been indulging in all the Afternoon Tea’s in Chester, and I have to say, Marmalade has taken the cake. Brilliant sandwiches- a mixture of egg, salmon, ham, cream cheese and tuna. Lovely loose leaf teas. The scones were huge, and...More

I’ve been here a couple times now and it’s a delight to have good service and nice food... cannot take these for granted these days, particularly the service, you know- greeting, eye contact, you know you’re in good hands, confident and cheerful.
