We’re big on warmth, low on fussiness: stripped wood floors, high bar stools, painted brickwork and comfy leather banquettes. Sup your pint beside our polished-oak bar or tuck yourself away in the Snug behind the frosted glass partition. You can hear yourself talk, concentrate on the crossword or nod off quietly in the corner.

To help keep everyone safe, our teams will continue to wear face masks and we'd love you to do the same when nentering and moving around the pub and dining room.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you.

Busy night as we had booked without realising it was Ladies Day at the nearby race course. Meant it was a bit noisy inside and out. Food was excellent.

Very helpful, particularly as I'd accidentally booked for 2 instead of 4. Saved the day by fitting us in on the fly, can't say enough about how good they were.

Great starters of potted shrimp and fresh local crab on toast, not a piece of shell in sight. But the star of the show was the lamb pie for 2 that came with minted jersey royals, carrot/swede mash and peas/spinach in cream, just superb. Always a winner in this restaurant.

Great atmosphere and service, nice Sunday roast but more outside seating and/or better aircon and/or some open windows would have been nice

Ambience marked down due to it being far too warm + windows not opening + no air conditioning.
Otherwise everything was great!

I think the problem with the heat - certainly not the fault of the pub - was that it might have been alleviated had the doors, which long ago allowed access to the upstairs storage, had been opened. In fairness, I didn’t ask about it. It only occurred to me sometime later.

The people serving us were excellent I only gave 4* because we had to wait quite a while for food-it was very busy so that’s probably why. Won’t stop us returning

Because of the pandemic we haven't really been out of the house much to enjoy restaurant meals. However it was my Father's 85th birthday so we too my parents out for Sunday lunch. We've been to The Broad Chare several times before and never been disappointed. We were met at the door and taken to our table upstairs. The food was delicious and there were several choices in each art of the menu. Service was excellent and cleanliness was second-to-none. Fantastic value for money and delicious food. Thank you. My Father really enjoyed his first time dining here and will definately be back again - as will we. Thanks to all at The Broad Chare.

It was my first time at the Broad Chare but I'd definitely go back. The staff were excellent - friendly without being instrusive. The menu was varied and the food was very good. It is expensive but good value for money as a special treat.
