Excellent food and great bar service. I have visited here on several occasions and never had a bad meal. Sunday dinner is excellent. I would highly recommend in every way. Atmosphere good, although can get a bit loud.

Never wrote a review before but thought this deserved it. We visited Chester for a night and was advised to go here. It was really busy which was great for the atmosphere but the Thing that made it was the service. Each and every staff member is polite, attentive and on the ball. One shout out goes to the companies... More

We were staying in Chester for a week and pooped into Bar Lounge on 3 occasions. There was a good choice of drinks on offer, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. The outside area worked in both the daytime and evening, and it always had a buzz.

We ate here on a Saturday lunchtime, place as you'd expect was busy but the restaurant area was a quiet oasis. The food was excellent, from the chicken skewers to start through to the rice pudding at the end, fish and chips sandwiched in the middle made it a meal to remember. Recommend to any other trip advisor users.

Booked 3 weeks in advance due to reported popularity. Dining area quite small from what I could see approx sat 30 people. This made for a charming atmosphere. Couldn't fault the food. Crab donuts, marinated Sausages, then baked cod and sirloin . Not an extensive menu but some quirky dishes ,well presented and delicious! Staff very attentive. Will happily return... More

Popped in for a swift celebratory pint after the Chester Half, the white beer is excellent and worth a visit for.

This well-established venue is popular, well-run with highly trained staff who look after you & remember your name. At weekends it's packed so booking is essential if you are eating or need a table for drinks. The outdoor terrace is a great place for meeting friends & has a vibrant atmosphere especially when a live dj presents the music. Tends... More

Had a day out in Chester with my Mum on Bank Holiday Monday. We went to Barlounge and sat in the restaurant which was beautifully decorated (need to find out where they get the moroccan stlye ceiling lights!). Mum ordered the ham hock which just melted in your mouth and I ordered the mixed grill with beer (for only £10!!!!)... More

Bar Lounge is permanently jam-packed, especially when the races are on and people watching is the order of the day - grab a table on the terrace to watch the crowds make their way to the nearby racecourse. Tables inside are at a premium so you will need to book ahead if you want to eat here, whether in the... More
