Good food and service

Couldn't actually get in on night we wanted, apparently early booking is advised. But we did get a table eventually and weren't disappointed. Cocktails were good, food was great. Busy but not too crowded. Staff very attentive. Will definitely go back.

I visited with 3 other friends for someone's birthday and we all had a great evening. It was a Monday so 3 of us had the mixed grill with a beer/wine for £10 and the other had the sea bass special. None of us were disappointed with the food, everything was delicious. A few of us then had dessert which... More

I booked a table for four of us before the races (27th June) for pre race drinks and food. Our table was outside which was fine as it was a nice day. The service was excellent considering on how busy it was. Staff was coming round looking if our glasses needed filling up and to check if bottles needed opening.... More

Had a late lunch early dinner yesterday (26th June) before ladies evening at Chester racecourse. Meal was very enjoyable. We both had steak and both were beautifully cooked with lovely peppercorn sauce which had a lovely peppery kick to it. My dessert was sticky toffee pudding and it was the best I've ever had, light and full of flavour. The... More

We just had cocktails at this place but they were absolutely amazing. We didn't eat here however we saw food going out and it looked so good so we'd definitely opt to eat if we visit again! It's not cheap but probably reasonable because they taste so good.

If you are a local to the Chester are you have to go to barlounge there is no choice. its where every one goes to see every one else and to be seen. If your visiting there are many other pubs that you should go to that offer similar decor and not so rammed a venue.

during my visit to Chester, we searched for this place as it was recommended for its espresso martini - and boy was it good. If you like good strong and robust coffee flavours...this alcoholic cocktail is for you. Recommend, Recommend, Recommend!
