“Legendary Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Went here for a meal on my Stag Do and ended up staying for most of the night, in short, brilliant staff, food and service combined with a great atmosphere. Highly recommended for any occasion if you are ever in Chester

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

I love this bar ... The staff are professional and polite at all times even when the bar is packed. I went in for a glass of wine between shopping and lunch and the staff can't do enough for you. The atmosphere is great too.

“2 spot on visits...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

I've walked and driven past Barlounge for years, admiring its gorgeous outdoor space covered in fairy lights but for some reason never actually gone in! However a couple of weeks back we decided to go for Sunday lunch and were left very impressed! The £10 lunch offer includes a wine or beer or soft drink and the roast beef was some of the best i've had, the roasts were lovely and garlicky and the veg selection was perfect as was the Yorkshire. We were also impressed with the level of service- to the point where when my family were in town and looking for a quick bite one Wednesday evening i suggested we all went to Barlounge for their Rump and Red offer.
Whilst the food had been excellent on the Sunday, i have to admit i thought that for £10 including a glass of wine, the steak was unlikely to be 'all that'- how wrong i was! The steak was large and good quality and a mountain of tasty chips and the usual trimmings were also well presented- our whole party of 6 were very impressed- we'll be back!

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Me and my partner booked a table here on a Saturday night at around 7pm. The bar was really busy and we were shown a table in a small restaurant area. The seating area wasn't comfortable but I could see there wasn't much choice. We were given a menu & were told she would be back to take our drinks order, 25 mins later a different waitress arrives and asks us if we are ready to order food, so we order both drinks and food.
Nearly an hr later we finally get our drinks, baring in mind we were sat watching people in the bar drink or to better put it they were watching us due to the horrible restaurant layout and glass panel.
Over 1 hr and 3 waitresses later the food arrives. Mine was delicious and plentiful (hamhock) my partners (steak) was dry and unappealing and not worth the money paid.
This is a great bar for drinks but I definitely wouldn't recommend eating here. It might be better in the day or mid week but the experience for us was both awkward and fustrating.
