After walking the length of Chester city Wall, we found Marmalade for a much needed Cuppa and cake. Being a coeliac, I was in Paradise! Everything on the menu was Gluten Free! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Very highly recommended, for everyone, especially Coeliacs!

Lovely coffee, relaxed ambience, super friendly and efficient staff and seriously decadent cakes. Would love to go back for soup and a sandwich as they looked pretty impressive too, might even enjoy a glass of wine next time.

Called in after reading reviews on trip advisor. We had a delicious lunch of homemade soup and sandwich - impressed - lots of filling in sandwiches and soup was great too especially when only extra 70p on price of sandwich! Good service as well. Recommend it!!

We visited Marmalade on Monday afternoon after seeing it recommended on a Coeliac site. I had a gluten free afternoon tea with a lovely selection of home made cakes, sandwiches & cream scone, tea or coffee & a glass of prosecco, for £15.95, all excellent quality. Lovely place with friendly staff, a must visit for Coeliacs

Visited here on our last day in Chester for Breakfast. Upon arriving it was really quiet with it being quite early. However, as soon as we sat down it got pretty busy. We were served really quickly and ordered the full English, it was lovely and plenty big enough. The food and service was good. Would definitely recommend and return.... More

Food, service,atmosphere and price all wonderful. The staff were all pleasant and really nice and accommodating. We only went in for a drink but seeing food come out that others ordered, we decided to have something ourselves and so glad we did. Looks quite small from outside but plenty of seating upstairs. Definitely recommend

Just had tea, coffee and cakes, you have to go upstairs here, they have a bakery downstairs and the cakes were really nice. It's only a small place upstairs, where they also have arrange of toasties and cakes.

Having had to begin a gluten free diet, I thought I would struggle to find somewhere to have lunch in Chester. Having googled for lunch options, I found a newspaper article pointing me to Marmalade for fantastic gluten free food. On arrival, we could not have had a warmer, friendlier welcome. One of the ladies working there also offered to... More
