Hidden down the side road in Bath, Chequers is a gorgeous cosy little pub with excellent gourmet pub good. Roast was delicious. Recommended!

Great food, beautifully presented but very slow service and small portions. The beetroot starter looked beautiful. We had our starters at about 7.45pm and our main course at least an hour later!

Fantastic evening meal at The Chequers. Slightly off the beaten track, but then Bath is so small that isn’t really an issue. The interior is very relaxed and combines the feel of the old pub with that of a well thought out restaurant. Very cosy...More

This is quite local to us and we love it. The food is delicious and the service is friendly professional and attentive. Lovely Sunday lunch but could do with bigger portions. Can take the dog which is an absolute plus. Highly recommend 😁

We came here for Sunday lunch and the whole place is lovely, it’s like a posh pub. Nice light dining area and upstairs there’s a brilliant large window that lets you see the kitchen. The down side of this means you are aware of things...More
