October 2013 I spent a couple of days in one of my favourite cities - Chester. We decided to totally relax so rather than head for the excellent shops we returned to Oddfellows for lunch. Its a number of years since I last dined here but again I loved it ! A surprisingly warm day, we ate in the walled garden kept warm by a patio heater in one of their quirky 'sheds'. Food was excellent as was our choice of wine and service by a young waitress and waiter was perfect. This is a fabulous quirky place and,after speaking to our waiter learnt it is now part of the Chester Grosvenor. We took up the offer of touring their recent bedroom extension. The rooms arent huge but very stylish and again a touch quirky. The charming manager pointed us in the direction of their super offer in January - needless to say I have booked a short stay.!!!!!
