During a day of shopping in Chester I had afternoon tea at The Chester Grosvenor.  This was a real treat that I had been hoping to do for some time and it did not disappoint one little bit.  We were seated at our table in a quite relaxing lounge with comfy chairs and elegant coffee tables.  We were quickly served with our choice of tea in the most beautiful silver tea service.
