The Chequers is a beautifully appointed gastropub that’s been serving guests since 1776. Situated a short walk from The Circus and Royal Crescent, it’s a firm favourite with Bathonians and visitors to the city alike. The menu is inventive, with a nod to the pub’s heritage in the shape of well-executed classic British dishes. The Chequers holds two AA rosettes for its cooking and is featured in The Michelin Guide.

The team’s respect for produce is at the forefront of their menu. The menu changes frequently to ensure it offers plenty to intrigue and surprise even regular diners. Dishes are crafted with care, expertly cooked and thoughtfully presented using only the best regional produce. You might begin with teriyaki salmon, chervil yoghurt, avruga caviar and fennel, followed by whole roasted partridge with white beetroot fondant, candied walnuts and quince.

Desserts look almost too good to eat – you won’t be able to resist tucking into the likes of white chocolate delice with blood orange sorbet and crumble. True to its roots, The Chequers also offers a menu of classics, with more traditional pub fare such as Bath Gem ale-battered haddock and dry-aged rib-eye steak.

To accompany the tempting menu, The Chequers has an extensive list of well-kept wine, and serves local ale and cider. The staff are professional and knowledgeable, yet friendly and unpretentious. Diners can choose to sit in the character-filled bar or the elegant restaurant upstairs, which affords a view into the kitchen with its panoramic window. On warm summer nights, diners and drinkers spill out onto the canopied patio area in front of the pub.

The Chequers is also a wonderful venue for functions thanks to its private dining and meeting room, both of which are available for hire.
