First visit to Chester having spent a weekend in a country hotel. We will definitely be returning for a night out and the BarLounge will definitely be on our hit list. The staff were so friendly from the guy that met us in the bar to the waitress that served us. They cam across as really sincere and happy to... More

Third visit to this Bar / Lounge. Well positioned at the bottom of Watergate Street in Chester. Really friendly staff - Simon greeted us and after sampling the only two real ales available (bit of a disappointment compared to previous visits) we settled on the 'Devatown' ale. A bit pricey for a schooner (not quite a pint) but after several... More

Having battled through the very busy outdoor drinking area, we came to a very lovely and relaxing restaurant area. We were very quickly greeted by a smiley waitress who offered us drinks and gave us menus. We spent a while looking through the drinks menu as the cocktail list is massive! We thought the waitress constantly topping up your water... More

The guy behind the bar I was watching make drinks whilst my date went to the toilet was massively under-pouring it was a complete joke. I should have really said something at the time. We were outside and ordered another drink. It took 10mins to come but was the wrong drink so she took it to get it changed. After... More

We visited late afternoon and so were able to get seats quite quickly. The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful and the drinks were served promptly. The only downside was that the latest drinks menu is harder to choose from because, rather than have lists e.g gin based cocktails, rum based etc, as previously, you now have to trawl through...

My wife and i popped in for a few drinks on a sunny Saturday afternoon while shopping, we found a table outside in the terrace garden area. There are a number of tables and areas were you can sit and watch the world go round while sampling the very good atmosphere and drinks. They do a large number of cocktails... More

Up market wine bar/restaurant ideally located within city walls. Best time to go is afternoon for lunch or early dinner as the bar got quite busy late on. Not sure about children as we did not see any but i am sure there will be no problems. Staff really helpful and meal arrived promptly. Great selection of bar or dinner... More
