This always used to be one of my favourite places in Chester, but over the past 6/12 months , the quality has deteriorated - it is still a great place to go & have a drink in the gardens on a sunny day (although be prepared to pay for the privilege - drinks are quite dear!)
The service & quality of food here is not what it used to be: I have had 2 disappointing experiences lately that I will mention
(A) afternoon tea - don't bother!! It is bulky bridge rolls (every filling smothered in mayo), and rock hard scones & brownies - there are other venues who offer much better quality
(B) lunch - whilst there appeared to actually be more staff than diners, it was difficult to get anyone's attention, the food was mediocre & the main was served on cold plates, with dessert served on warm plates - go figure!!
I will be back to drink wine in the beautiful gardens but will not be eating here again, too many better places in Chester & the sooner the venue realise that, hopefully, the better!
