It's Easter Monday evening as I type. I had a few days out of London in sunny Chester with friends which I enjoyed a lot. We've had quite good weather over the holiday season (and I have caught the sun), which always helps.
I know that the Chester Tourist Board will probably not pay me, but I will plug the following places:
Telfords, which is a nightclub/restaurant/bar down by the River Dee. Good booze and music (young peoples' happening stuff AND the sort of stuff I can sing along to). Bit of a dancefloor as well, although you may end up a bit deaf next day;
Chez Jules which is a very good French restaurant and not hideously expensive; &
The Albion, which is an old-style Victorian pub. When tourists from abroad say they want to see a typical English pub, this is the sort of place to take them. The Albion is a self-proclaimed "Family Hostile" pub, so it's "adults only" really.
