Very underwhelmed by the food, everything was lukewarm and it appears the roasted vegetables were prepared quite a bit earlier. Very expensive, mediocre Sunday lunch!
The food and service was absolutely fantastic. I have never quite had a sunday lunch to that standard before and as a person who doesn't love dates in sticky toffee pudding you have now converted me !! The whole experience of a perfect sunday lunch was flawless and we will certainly be coming back and recommending to all of our friends and family.
Chosen for location and convenience really but glad we did. Menu is short and looks a bit ordinary but there’s something different and creative about every dish. We both had the cod which was marvellous. Good value to at £19 for two courses. Altogether excellent and highly recommended.
We were pretty disappointed with our dinner at Chequers to be honest. We called up in advance and asked to put the table back by 30 mins as we were running a bit late which was accommodating with the caveat that we may have to wait for our food as they were very busy at that time. In truth, I doubt they were more than two thirds full.
But that's not really my issue. I take issue with the prices on the menu (which clearly I knew before booking). I think if you charge £10 for starters and £23-£25 for mains then you need to deliver really good, tasty, elegant food, backed with professional, knowledgeable, attentive service. And I don't think Chequers delivers that. I had the lamb and my wife had the steak, both of which were reasonable but not memorable or stand out.
It's ok, but it really should deliver more at that level. There are too many restaurants that pitch themselves at that price-point and fail to back it up and I'm afraid that Chequers is one of these for me. In a bigger city with more competition, I think it would get found out.
Friendly, nice atmosphere and contemporary decor in a lovely Georgian building. Food was imaginative and well priced with an good wine list and friendly, cheerful service. Had lunch on a February Friday with two old friends from out of town and both were very impressed. Good plus points - it's slightly out of the heart of the town so you can actually park quite easily (metered), will be good to try in the summer for al fresco eating. Only, minor downside- quite a lot of noisy very small kids which I guess you wouldn't get in the evening.
The waitress and waiter were extremely friendly, apparently 20 minutes is a "wait on food" but I would say that is an excellent time on food arrival.
The food was very nice. Compliments to the chef and his team.
Excellent food quality on main course. Good service with friendly waiter . Dessert menu rather limited. Very good wine list.
Really enjoyed our dinner, starter could have been larger or advised that two couldn’t share, probably wouldn’t ask for a tip at the end but other than that; delicious!!
Went on a Sunday evening for a meal after being at the spa. They had the roast menu on until the evening that day which was a very welcome surprise. The ambience was perfect. Chilled, family and friends vibe. Warm fire burning in the corner and mellow music playing on great quality speakers. The food was fab, I had the burger and chips and my partner had the chicken roast. Both very good portion sizes and very tasty. We then got a sticky toffee pud, and a peanut butter semi freddo for desert. Very nicely presented and delicious. Would highly recommend as the staff are friendly and welcoming.
Had a lovely meal Friday night. The food was perfect! Only thing that let the meal down was sitting so close the tables next to us.
Really enjoyed our meal. Ox cheek was delicious. Haddock & chips recommended too. Cheese & biscuits nice selection. Great service too.
My partner and I have decided between us that a Sunday Roast is our favourite all-round meal. After hearing that The Chequers offers one of the best roasts in Bath, we decided to go for our anniversary.
I really enjoyed the experience overall - The Chequers is warm and welcoming, as well as being unfussy and comfortable in it's atmosphere. The service is also excellent, and we were looked after attentively through all courses (though not too attentively, which is something some venues can often get wrong).
Despite this, I couldn't help but feel that the prices were a little steep for the portion size, which if I'm honest was the only drawback of the meal.
I would return to The Chequers and recommend it for any special occasion, or when you're willing to splash out a little bit more for a cosy Sunday indulgence.
Well worth a visit
Lovely, warm and friendly ... food delicious and great location.
Delicious food and elegant surroundings in a quiet street of Bath.
Never disappointed by Chequers. Imaginative food. Always recommend Chequers to my Airbnb guests and many have taken up my suggestion.
Fantastsic food - really outstanding. Would definitly go back.
We're staying at the Royal Crescent Hotel, around the corner and their restaurant is undergoing a refurbishment so they recommended a few places nearby, The Chequers being one of them. What a great meal we had! Everything was delicious, very chic, modern, high end and all in a really casual, comfortable atmosphere. Highly recommend the Salt and Pepper Squid and the Beetroot Salad as starters. My venison was delicious (if a little skimpy) and Rick's Fish and Chips were clean, fresh and terrific. Finished with a cheese plate, instead of a normal dessert, and forgot about how great this is to change things up, now and then! GO GO GO
Great place with good food and friendly staff. Being going there for years.
Nice food and wine but service nowhere near up to standard for the prices. My cod main was far too salty.
A locals treasure! Hidden off the main roads, this restaurant has all the qualities of a fantastic night out. Small and cosy, attentive waiters, and delicious food, all at affordable prices. Highly recommend this for a lovely night out.
Amazing food great service , worth travelling a little outside the city centre,.
Lovely food, excellent service, very friendly staff, good atmosphere, what more do you need?
Booked for a special family dinner and did not disappoint. Friendly atmosphere and super service from our waitress. We ordered venison and the gnocchi and both dishes were awesome. Venison cooked to perfection and the different flavours and textures in the gnocchi were so tasty and creative. Would recommend to everyone for any occasion!
The food was delicious and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. We had a lovely evening and always come to The Chequers when we are in Bath. Thank you!
Incredible food, highly recommended for foodies and foodlovers
What an amazing experience of one of the best tasting menus we have eaten, so many flavours and wine to compliment each dish, service was brilliant and very attentive by both the management and waitress. Highly recommend this place for any occasion but especially any birthdays or even date nights.
Food and service was exceptional! Our waitress Emile was very attentive and friendly and I would recommend to anyone looking for delicious and authentic food in a cosy and modern pub!
Really great value. Wonderful service, decent wine list, and well presented food.
