“Great find, great burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Ate in the bar lounge today with my gf, have to Say I'm glad we did. The service was great, the burgers even better.
They are all home made with
Lots of variations I opted for the blue cheese and bacon burger cooked rare. My gf had a platter which consisted of chilli and nachos, cheese garlic beard and goats cheese and beetroot salad. My burger came perfectly cooked juicy with a side of skin on fries & red cabbage coleslaw neatly presented on a wooden chopping board. It was great with a good bill
Of only 23 pounds exactly, I will certainly go again if I'm in Chester.

“Top notch service, top notch grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Booked to eat here whilst in Chester celebrating my girlfriends birthday as the reviews were decent and the photo's looked good too. We arrived a bit early (had booked online a few days prior) so asked the friendly barman if our table was ready, which it was. So he served us our drinks, which were added to our food bill rather than paying for them at the bar, and we were shown to our table. The area we ate in looked like an extension to the original building, I could be mistaken, and it was clean, tidy, and well decorated. The waitress came across to our table with the menu and also some complimentary water. Whilst deciding what to order she came over once again with a small plant pot (funky touch) full of crisps. I was alone in ordering a starter so the waitress asked my girlfriend if she'd like more crisps, which was nice. The starter came out, homemade sausage rolls, and it was delicious! Not long after that out mains arrived. Mine the blue cheese and bacon burger, and my girlfriends the cesear burger. The food was served on a slab of wood, and the chips were in an old tin (bakebeans perhaps?!), which we both thought was very cool. The presentation was lovely, and the taste just as good. Neither of us had any desserts as we were both full from the mains (and crisps!). After paying we headed back to the bar area for more drinks. Overall the service was excellent, the food was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable. Cannot fault.

“Not one complaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

First time in Chester and decided to book here due to the great reviews i had read on here, and i was far from disappointed and couldn't agree more with all the great reviews that have been written . The staff was nothing but welcoming and attentive constantly topping up our glasses. Not even one complaint about the food it was perfectly cooked and tasted very fresh, overall was a really enjoyable evening at Bar Lounge and will definitely be making a trip back.

“Cosmopolitan with a warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Incredible service, genuine staff, fab cocktail menu, gorgeous surroundings!

The staff were so friendly, they told the restaurant next door that we were there, so our table would not be given away, they walked us over and even gave us a round on the house on account of my birthday. Needless to say, we went back after dining and stayed all night!
