We stopped off here for a cuppa after walking the walls - great café with extras. We had cake and chips which was naughty but everything looked good and tasted good. Staff were very friendly

We have visited Little Roodee several times and when we visit Chester we make a point of having a meal at Little Roodee. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent.

As I am Scottish the owner thought it ok to make a comment about me "coming down to spend my money whilst I could - saying that he didn't mind it and would accept it" - I... More

My friend and I visited this café whilst visiting Chester on a coach trip. The place was spotlessly clean, they were playing christmas music and the staff couldn't do enough for us. My friend (who is a wheelchair user) was given personal assistance. Moving chairs etc. They answered our questions about where to go and when we asked a question... More
