Good service from the staff, polite and patient. Food was pretty good, not mind blowing but certainly acceptable, the restaurant is pleasant enough. Only real sting in the tail was being charged £8 for 2 bottles of WATER for the table, especially on a £100+ meal. Oh well.

Great venue, staff knowledgeable and friendly and the manager was very welcoming and accommodating which set a very pleasant tone. The only negative comment was that the luch time menu is very limited, particularly the puddings, but all the food we had was delicious.

Venue and atmosphere great although somewhat let down by the service and organisation of staff. Overall my party enjoyed the afternoon tea. Please review your resources against bookings, they didn't seem to have enough capacity to deal with everyone on a timely basis.

Felt a little rushed, dishes whipped away as soon as put cutlery down. Would have liked someone to go through menu with us properly. All in all food great, service a little amateur!

I felt the savoury part of the afternoon tea was too small at three fingers each person. My son had a smaller childrens afternoon tea and he had 4 fingers of sandwich plus cakes. The adult cakes were lovely and there were plenty.

Stunning atmosphere with great bar staff and food. Once seated the service was a little slow and we had to ask for our food and drinks a couple of times after placing each order. However we were not disappointed when it all came - a trip to Chester should definitely include drinks and/or food at Oddfellows!

We had an amazing 'Let them eat cake' experience - the sandwiches and cakes were to die for! The staff were very attentive and polite. The setting is a delight!!

Meagre portions and uninspiring fillings of sandwiches (at odds with the decor) only 3 finger style each. Usually have 4 when had afternoon tea elsewhere. Not the best I've had but service was very good and pleasant surroundings and drinks were refilled

Had a fabulous afternoon yesterday in The Garden celebrating my daughter-in-law's 40th birthday. Our two waiters Jack and Louis were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and both were friendly and efficient.

We are consistently thrilled and delighted with Oddfellows, and are regular visitors. We would also like to highlight the courteous and highly professional service we always receive from Jack in the bar and restaurant. He always helps with our requests and is very keen to assist. Thank you very much.
