We visited here twice during our trip to Chester. Once for lunch and once for afternoon tea. Both experiences were excellent. The food is delicious and well worth the money. The service is brilliant, staff are very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I recently visited Chester for our wedding anniversary. We reserved a table for afternoon tea; it was beautiful room, lovely atmosphere with the piano being played, friendly and helpful staff and the food was delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful afternoon tea and cake with live piano player in a cool large historic room. Staff friendly. Not the cheapest place but worth it.

We booked an afternoon tea for our family of four, to treat our young visiting Italian student. It's definitely 'treat' territory, because it's not cheap. Saying that, you DEFINITELY get your monies worth. The Booth Mansion is a gorgeous historical building, you have tea in...More
