They're doing something right at the Chequers. There's been a drinking house here, tucked a few streets behind the Royal Crescent, since 1776. Skip forward 200-odd years and it's still going strong, serving up a good selection of local ales and fine wines, and in 2012, it won the Bath Life Gastro Pub of the Year Award – no mean feat in a city not short on such establishments. The food is, unsurprisingly, well thought-out: the chalkboard menu changes regularly, reflecting what's good locally and seasonally, but expect tastebud treats such as Mushroom lasagne with fig and aubergine, Confit pork belly with haricot bean cassoulet and Roasted cornish monkfish with Bombay potato & curried lentils. Sunday lunches get busy (booking advised); as well as meat– all sourced from local farms – veggies can feast on hazelnut, mushroom and apricot roast with Yorkshires. Yum.
We're a simply furnished, atmospheric gastropub serving inventive, beautifully presented British food & bar classics. We believe in keeping it seasonal, and all produce is sourced from with 50 miles of the pub where possible. We know that it's the little personal touches that make a meal special, and we're always ready to go the extra mile to give great service and to make your time at The Chequers memorable.
January saw us achieve a second AA rosette, an accolade fully deserved by head chef Leigh Evans and his passionate and dedicated team.
