    Honestly, one of the most outstanding meals we have had for a while. The flavors, the presentation, the kindness of the staff. Outstanding is the perfect word. And the lemon sole was the definition of a chefs kiss!

    One of if not HE best restaurant in Bath. The manager is a gem and the staff is very attentive. The Sauces and the Entree's to die for. Well worth of the bib gourmand and perhaps a star is in their future!

    This was our 3rd visit and it’s always good. Lovely food, friendly service and apart from the price of a draught Doom Bar (£7) was excellent value for money. No automatic service charge was added which is unusual but at least 10% was a justified additional cost given the level of service.

    A busy Sunday afternoon which is a good sign. The food was excellent as ever. One of our party had the fish special & it was wonderful. The cheesy leeks are marvellous, treat yourself to some.

    Roast was piled high on the plate, not generally how I like to see a meal presented, having to unpick the layers to get to each part. Most of the plate turned out to be yorkshire pudding, and 2 very thin slices of beef seemed a little skimpy. But extra gravy was generously supplied.

    Main course was really good (sole), starter of salt baked beetroot in a beetroot and horseradish veloute was not appetising at all. Three is our group ordered it and no one liked it. It seemed to be some tiny pieces of beetroot in ketchup! The sole as my main was however delicious. This pub really needs to sort its service out. Our waitress kept barking over the top of us and interrupting a guest who had just arrived. When we asked for a couple more minutes to decide on our meals we were told we couldn’t have any more time! Definitely need to improve customer service skills. Unlikely to go here again.

    Overall we had an exceptional Sunday Lunch in the Chequers. Highly recommended, we’d definitely go again. The prime rib of beef was sublime. Cheesy leeks the best ever. Puddings were just perfect. Very friendly and helpful service. Perfect for a celebration Sunday Lunch and family gathering. Well done to The Chequers.

    Not enough veg, gravy was bland, overall dish needed seasoning and herbs. Potatoes were too hard to cut. 12.30 table, appeared food had been hanging around under the warmers. Chicken was good.

    The service was terrible and honestly one of the worst I've ever received. I don't ask for much, but a welcoming greeting, and helpful service, doesn't take much. All staff were very cold and unhelpful. The roast was of a fine standard, nothing amazing, but fine. I think it's the whole experience when you go out for food, everything adds up to your overall feeling. I've had better meals where the food was very average but had great customer service and atmosphere. Every part is important. I honestly don't know how this place is on the Michelin star guide, I wouldn't go back, and I felt extremely uncomfortable with the service I received.

    The roast was delicious and was a short walk away from the Royal Crescent! A little sad there wasn’t a cauliflower cheese as a side. One of the male staff members wasn’t very helpful when we asked about vegan options and came across a little passive aggressive, resulting in our friend finding food elsewhere. Aside from that, we really enjoyed our visit and would recommend.

    The food was excellent and the portion size very generous. However each booking only lasts 90 minutes which was only just enough time to finish one course and left us feeling rushed and like they were hurrying us out the door. There definitely wouldn't be time for a second course unless you just shovelled it in and didn't speak for the whole 90 minutes. Also we were the 1st booking and the staff member opened the door he didn't say anything just walked away which was awkward. As good as the food was I don't know if I would go back

    If you want a fast food Sunday lunch this is the place! You have one and a half hours to race your way through three courses to the finish. You will be reminded though ten minutes before time that you can either go downstairs and sit at the bar or finish off sitting outside. Bear in mind that you will need a strong set of teeth to chew your way the pre cooked/over cooked roast potatoes! We had to send ours back! Cold plates too! We were told that the info about allocated table time is on line for all too see. No thanks never again!! Maybe they should do takeaway Sunday lunch instead save anyone sitting down. What a disappointment Chequers.
