We came here last night for dinner with no reservation, but we were sorted out with a decent table in the bar area. I had the roast dinner Sunday deal - you might not expect it from a bar but the roast beef is one of the nicest I've had! The meat is full of flavour, portion is big but... More

Went to Bar Lounge for lunch for my daughters' Hen Do this weekend at Chester Races following a personal recommendation. Nice table and calm atmosphere at the rear of the restaurant despite it being very crowded outside with racegoers. Good service and good food, a leisurely lunch which was enjoyed by all at a good price. An excellent start to... More

We are here for two nights. The first night we had their Wednesday evening offer - steak chips and a glass of wine for £10 - delicious. Great service and atmosphere.

Went for dinner on a Friday evening with friends. Busy bar area but the restaurant was spacious with a nice atmosphere. We all enjoyed our food, great burgers and staff were friendly and efficient. A first visit for food and will certainly return, maybe for one of their midweek offers.

We have been going to Bar Lounge for almost 15 years and the place never changes. They are able to get and retain staff that are in a different league to anywhere else (either in Chester or pretty much anywhere else in the UK). True service philosophy, always very pleasant whilst still able to serve a drinks order at the... More

Lovely place and setting with a great selection of drinks and snacks. The food is of a good quality. It's just unfortunate that to enjoy the outdoor area I must endure it all being a smokers area. Would recommend the place for anyone to enjoy a smart casual drink and meal though

Barlounge is by far the best bar in Chester. The food is good, service is good and there is always a buzzing atmosphere.

When Barlounge throw a party prepare yourself for a hangover. Last night was, without doubt, spectacular. The resident mixologist were on top form launching their new bespoke cocktail menu. For those that love a quality cocktail this is the destination venue. Last nights launch featured a dancer in a 10 feet tall cocktail glass, specialist gins, stunning canopies, ice sculptures...
