    We love Chequers and try to visit often. The staff are welcoming and friendly, the food is excellent and seasonal and the wine list is accessible. I was spoilt for choice last night. We ate three courses each and enjoyed all of them.

    Recommended to me as gourmet “pub grub,” The Chequers was every bit as good as its reputation and more. The chef owner appeared to be a one-man show as he greeted, took orders, served, and generally made everyone feel happy. My spatchcock chicken with fresh vegetables and a side of Jersey potatoes was sensational. As was my wife’s fish — moist, seasoned perfectly, and a generous portion. We had a nice bottle of (dare I say) French wine to go with our meal. If you are seeking a comfortable restaurant with excellent food and a proprietor who pays personal attention to his clients (and is a short walk from the Royal Crescent Hotel), then this is your place! Outstanding in every way.

    We thought it was lovely overall and really enjoyed our lunch. The only downside was I ordered the beef and only received 2 slices with quite a lot of fat ! Could have had a bit more meet with less fat . I felt the price for a roast dinner was rather high at £23.50 ,so next visit shall be the chicken 🐔

    First time we have had a meal at the Chequers. We enjoyed the meal which used good quality produce and was well prepared. The starters and main courses were great but we felt the deserts were a bit bland. They need to lift them a bit and it would be almost perfect !!

    A fantastic Sunday lunch, possibly one of the best we’d ever had. Ginormous Yorkshire puddings, bountiful gravy, delicious meats and veg and standout cheesy leeks. Attentive, friendly staff - all round, fabulous.

    Lovely Sunday lunch dining experience at good value and quality food. My tiny gripe was the tiny amount of gravy served and the Yorkshire whilst being enormous and tasty was cold and soggy. Lovely beef and selection of veg and pudding was gorgeous. Very welcoming staff too.

    Great meal in Bath celebrating our Silver wedding anniversary. Service was spot on, the pace of the meal was perfect and the food cooked really well. We had scallops, Dorset crab, gnocchi and the flat iron steak and then deserts. All were delicious. This was our second night in Bath and the day after our actual anniversary, but this was the meal that made the trip special.
