The chefs have created yet another imaginative menu we all ended up trying bits of each others meals it was so good. Have been coming here for some years now and the only time we've been disappointed is when we can't get a table! They have a great selection of wines and the staff really now their stuff and can...

I've been going to Barlounge for years, since it first opened, and the place just gets better and better. If you're visiting Chester and want to visit a brilliant bar with great service, a cool atmosphere and a great range of cocktails, wines, spirits and beers then look no further. With waiter service to the outdoor, but undercover and heated,... More

Visited this lovely Bar/restaurant for Sunday lunch and as the advert goes, if Carlsberg did Sunday lunch this would be it. The offer was Roast beef lunch and a Glass of wine for £11.50, When the roast arrived it was perfection, Plenty of beautiful tasty roast potatoes, beautiful creamy butternut squash with broccoli, all served with 3 good slices of...

We had a great lunch at BarLounge yesterday. It serves without question the best steak pie in Chester! MyMum had chicken Kiev & she said it was delicious too. The service is first class, the staff never make you feel rushed and are very attentive & friendly. The only minor downside is the restaurant feels a little cramped as it... More

Ate there last night and the place was very busy, but we were shown through to the restaurant area (which is small but very chic) and found that we were able to eat in comfort, but still had the atmosphere from the main bar and outside area. It is mostly a younger clientele on a Saturday. The staff were amazing... More

The cocktail menu here is amazing- something for every taste. We had the sharing board for a starter which was really filling and so fresh. For our main we had the Joe Blake steak- which was a sharing board of steak, chunky chips, prawns and some veg. It was enough to feed 3 people and tasted amazing! The service was... More

We went here for the Wednesday steak deal (rump and red for £10). We didn't have enormous expectations but were absolutely blown away. We've eaten here once before and one of us wasn't impressed with their food. This visit, however, was amazing. The decor in the restaurant area is really cool and relaxed. You could just chill out there for... More
