The Chequers - Bath
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.
The food is. extremely good and as a group of 6 all the plates returned empty and we enjoyed. Only issue was a drinks order never arrived but the team addressed the matter to our satisfaction.
The street level bar could do with a freshen up , bit tatty , but this did not detract from good food and service
Lovely restaurant in quiet area of scenic Bath. Staff very friendly and helpful on arrival and throughout the evening. Food of a very high standard and presented beautifully. Wide range of drinks. Lovely quiet ambience. Toilet facilities extremely clean. Exceptional value for what we had with 10 percent off with Bath reward card. Would definitely recommend
The food was tasty although choices were limited. Portions were average - would need to order other sides if you were hungry. Service was pleasant enough
Three lamb was overcooked, it was 15:15, last booking of the day and they should really have taken it off the menu. The beef still looked good but if rather have been told that the lamb was of the menu than served with something past its best
We have observed over previous meals the the proportion size has reduced a little. Otherwise excellent
We are fairly regular lunch clients here. The food is good and reliable and value for money. More recently, the lunch menu has seemed to offer less choice and not especially balanced. It may be different for dinner.
On this occasion, we had difficulty in initially finding any staff. It appears that they were all upstairs with a big party, although we saw nothing of this. Once someone had appeared to man the bar things proceeded smoothly.
Everything we ate was perfect .
Lots of menu options
We had the lamb sharing roast and it was amazing
A rocky start from a service perspective but the food and wine was all excellent. The roast chicken and lamb dishes we ate were really very good. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the decor simple yet effective and I'd definitely recommend.
Great friendly service
Lovely sunday lunch with great choice of roasts available. The staff were very attentive and helpful throughout. We would return upon our next stay in bath.
Overall great food and good value. Had a fairly noisy/boozy table near us but in fairness, the staff did apologise for this. Rice pudding dessert was a bit weird and undercooked.
Had a great late lunch, food was really good, the Sirlon of beef was perfect, all of it was pink and very moist, the belly of pork was very fatty, but what meat there was was really good. What we liked was we were not rushed. Highly recomend it..
Enjoyable evening with friends. Good food and friendly attentive service. Thankyou.
We were disappointed with the promised ‘seafood weekend’ the oysters were excellent but the Hake main course very poor. Small portion of very dry fish, virtually no sauce and hard to eat vegetable .
Our guests are stringy squid and a tasteless seafood soagetti- 2 prawns and a couple of mussels do not constitute a seafood pasta dish.
The noise level was uncomfortable and whilst the service was Ok it was very amateur. We declined a pudding due to poor quality of main course and the noise.
We have always loved the Chequers and jumped at a chance to book a table for their British Oyster and Shellfish weekend. Sadly it was far from what we had imagined, The seafood platter consisted of 4 shelled Thai prawns, 8 cooked mussels, a small dish of white crabmeat, a spoonful of cockles and an oyster, all this for nearly £30 ! Very disappointing indeed. We were expecting a big round plate of ice topped with fresh prawns, whelks, clams and either a whole crab or whole lobster..... Too much to hope for. I must say the rest of the time we have always eaten very well at the Chequers, but the Shellfish weekend might need a rethink.
This was our first visit and we will definitely go back. Great atmosphere quite intimate but still a nice buzz going on. The food and service was exceptional and also really great value. Would highly recommend thank you!
Best pub roast I've had... the beef was incredible!
Delicious food. Well presented. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Service was good. A bit expensive but my husband and I had Artisan bread, mains , deserts and drinks so we could have cut back if we wanted. However, it was my birthday treat and I am worth it !
Good value good, pleasant and friendly staff. Good dining experience
We ate here on the hottest night of the year. The food was very good as always, although the tomato starter dish seemed rather ordinary and under seasoned.
The whole plaice was excellent, ditto the burger and wood pigeon. We had not finished our wine, but the staff very kindly wrapped cling film around it to allow us to take it away.
A very enjoyable evening.
Lovely! Attentive staff, nice food! Good value. Thank you!
We have been several times and will be back
The champagne to start went down very well but, more important, the food was excellent. We had been there two days before and everything was just as good.
Very attentive service, however food was pretty standard.
Great food, excellent roast. Service efficient and welcoming
Good food, and very good service. Only slight issue might be that the toilets are down steep stairs.
Brilliant dinner. Inventive menu and beautifully cooked. Not cheap but worth it
We chose here for lunch when we traveled to Bath. The food was absolutely great and the service is friendly and nice, too!
Service was amazing! The staff were very friendly. Food and drinks were great.
Keep going back to Chequers in Bath. Always consistently good. Well run and team always happy and as a customer keep recognising the same staff faces even though only in town once or twice a year. Food fab as ever
A nice Sunday lunch but not outstanding. The upstairs dining room had a good ambiance and was buzzy, and I liked the window to the kitchen.
The stairs leading up from the ground floor were really slippy, perhaps there had been an oil spillage, but it gave a bit of a grubby feel as we took our seats. Our waiters were attentive and helpful. Overall a good lunch - somewhere I would try again for an evening meal.
We had a lovely meal to celebrate our anniversary at The Chequers - it's a friendly local in close walking distance of Bath city centre, serving delicious food with generous portions. It was Sunday night so fairly quiet but I presume it'll be much busier on a Friday or Saturday so would recommend booking!
A cute pub with friendly service. The Sunday roast was excellent. I would definitely come again.
Excellent lunch thank
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.
Great spot for a casual Sunday lunch. Service friendly and efficient. Really enjoyed the sharing roast.
