The Chequers is a beautifully restored gastropub that serves high quality home cooked food, in a friendly pub atmosphere.

The menu compromises of refined, beautifully presented modern British fare, but The Chequers stays true to its roots by also offering a classics menu. The Sunday roast is legendary and won the Bath Good Food Award for best Sunday lunch in Bath. Add to that a great wine list and a selection of well kept local ciders and ales and you have The Chequers.

We're located just a short walk from some of Bath's most famous landmarks – the Circus and the Royal Crescent. So whether you live or work locally, or are a visitor to Bath, you're equally welcome and we look forward to seeing you.

Nice to find traditional Sunday English main course
That was all we needed. BUT I wouldn’t put Yorkshire pudding with anything other than with Beef . It was served up with lamb for me and there should be a suet pudding instead as you are trying to be traditional on Sundays !

Shared roast platter was delicious. Good wine selection. Service just right. Sticky toffee pud was nice enough but might have been a bit less cake like. Overall, a really good meal.

Amazing Sunday roasts!

Was recommended this place by a friend from Bath and oh what a great shout! The roasts were amazing and exactly what we were craving! Service was spot on and as this was a birthday celebration they even presented a candle and free desserts- totally unexpected but greatly appreciated!

Great value for money and of course happy to pay full! Recommending this to friends/family visiting Bath.

Food really great but I was so disappointed with the service and that totally ruined the experience. I was expecting better service at a place like this. The staff were friendly but seemed uninterested in the guests, and serving them. The place is so charming and food great so I would recommend it, but I would warn people to not expect outstanding service.

The portion could be bigger, but definitely the best roast beef in Bath! Pity they only serve roast on a Sunday, otherwise we would be there more often.

We had an excellent Roast (beef). The meat was delicious and very well cooked. Very refined dessert. We could go with our dog who was warmed welcome by the staff. Overall a very good experience. I would definitively recommended to a friend.

We had a friends and family get together over Sunday lunch and it was excellent - to quote my 10 year old Godson ‘that was the best roast dinner in all my life!’

Food was good although maybe a little overpriced. When we were there the outside door was propped open which meant that we were sitting in a draught and didn’t do much for the atmosphere

Wonderful food in a lovely period pub with a very friendly welcome. Just round the corner from The Royal Crescent and The Circus but an oasis of calm. Will definitely be going again.

Service, setting, offering all absolutely fantastic. The cooking of the food was brilliant. The only thing that let the meal down was the quality of the meat.
It would be interesting to know who your butcher is. Other than that, absolutely brilliant.

From the moment we walked in the staff were happy and friendly which gave us a good feeling. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were incredibly helpful and efficient. It is a little bit more expensive that some other places but it’s completely worth it for the quality of food and drink that you get. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Outstanding roast beef with all the trimmings. Take a healthy appetite. Starter not needed if you are planning on pudding - delicious crumble and custard. A most relaxing and enjoyable Sunday lunch.

The restaurant has a warm, relaxed atmosphere. High end, but not pretentious. One of us tried the renowned fish and chip dish and loved it. Another one tried the Skrey Cod, a third one picked meat as the main course. We were all very happy with our choices. The dark chocolate terrine at the end was outstanding. The service was friendly. Good value for money.

I used the chequers to feed myself when at a loose end. The menu is mostly gastro but I just wanted fish and chips. The fish looked very unprepossessing but it ate very well. Good ice cream. Not great beer for a gastropub. Would go again

Our lunch here was so delightful and relaxing. The service, food, and wine were all excellent (we raved about the roast skirt, the homemade pork rillettes, and some of the best fries we've ever had) and they played great music at a nice level that didn't drown out conversation. The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed and comfortable. Lunch here was also a much better deal than a pizzeria we'd tried the night before, perhaps partly because it's slightly off the beaten track, just outside the center of Bath. We had such a great time and would definitely recommend the Chequers.

Great lunch venue with personal care. I rang in advance to check some dietary needs and was impressed by care taken and on arrival this phone call had been logged and acted upon. Lovely bar area to eat in and food was excellent. Unrushed and chilled atmosphere that we all loved. Will definitely return and try supper next.
