Just watch out for the still water charge. Tap water poured from carafe continously without even asking if wanted it. Then charged £6 for still water. When challenged said that it was mistake and money taken off bill. Always check your bill !

I don't know how many times I've walked passed Barlounge in Chester every time I've visited Chester, but I will be going back many times in the future. Why did I keep walking past? I thought it was just another pub from the outside. My apologies to Barlounge "beauty is not skin deep". The interior is nicely decorated in the... More

Good Atmosphere as you enter venue - bartenders seemed a little robotic for my taste - giving every customer the exact same experience no really personal touch to their service. Nice cocktails though - will be back to try food.

We ate here last visit to Chester and enjoyed it so much arranged to meet family here for an evening meal. Great smell of mulled wine as you enter, which I sampled and can say it tastes as good as it smells. Staff always look happy and are very efficient. We all enjoyed our meals in this relaxed cosy atmosphere.... More

I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I live in Leeds and travel to Chester just to come here as the staff and the food are just the best. Jason,Sam and all the staff are so much fun but so professional and the food is just the best especially the Sunday lunch.

Visited on the last Saturday of November at two. Meals arrived at three, waitress had already apologised and offered free orange juice. When the meals arrived my potatoes were rock hard. Mini burgers were excellent. Ham hock was good. Neither of us were over impressed with my wife's salad. All in all it was the start of the Christmas rush.... More

Went in with a friend for a couple of glasses of wine. This is a lovely bar all decorated tastefully for Christmas. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

We ate lunch here. There's plenty of choice on the menu, whether you fancy a snack, a main meal or something in between. I chose the posh fish finger sandwich & my husband had a breakfast. Both meals were delicious & very good value. The staff are extremely friendly & made a point of calling out to us as we... More

This very busy, popular bar does a great variety of food. The prices for the special meals were excellent value. The staff, although very busy, very friendly and helpful and took time to chat. Having ordered the "Evening Special" of rump steak and red wine, we were not disappointed, the wine was very pleasant and the steaks were cooked to... More
