We have been to Chequers & Marlborough Tav many times and had amazing food but tonight was pretty disappointing. As it was a special occasion we were really excited to eat there but found the place wasn't nearly as good as previous visits. The vegetarian main course was £16 and was no bigger than a starter portion which seems strange... More

We share your feelings of disappointment over your last experience of The Chequers, your review has come at a time where we're enjoying such fantastic guest feedback and complaints are scarce so we would be really grateful if you would consider returning to us for another meal, we can do so much better! The gnocchi dish is so popular with... More

Managed to get my wife to try Rabbit after years of reluctance and she agreed that the Chequers dish was excellent. All staff were pleasant and attentive with relaxed atmosphere. Top Marks.

We were recommended this pub by Robert at Gainsborough, it took my mum and me a while to find (we are terrible at map reading) but it's set out in the backstreet of Bath which is so peaceful. We were welcomed with smiles & our waitress who had recently joined the team was wonderful. All around a great place to... More

This was our 5th visit to Bath and our 4th back to The Chequers. We absolutely love this place and this visit did not disappoint us. We had 3 courses and a bottle of wine. Although it was a bit pricy it is well worth the money. The service was excellent and we had a truly wonderful evening. The online... More

Went with a friend for my retirement treat. What a treat it was - did the tasting menu with accompanying wine flight. The whole thing was absolutely delicious and highly recommended for a special occasion.

Thanks chrispres! We love being able to provide these tasting menu's. We all take a lot of pride in our wine pairings, making sure they are interesting but also creating a sense of entertainment and mystery. We purposefully don't advertise what we run for our wine/drink flight. Giving the staff a chance to add their own input to the pairings.... More

But with an up-to-date menu. Delicious homemade gnocchi, and a perfectly cooked steak were two of our choices. The room is pretty and the service was very good. It was a great choice for a visit to Bath, conveniently located near the Circus and the Assembly Rooms.

My favourite place in Bath for special occasions. The menu choices makes it tricky to choose. Have also had amazing Sunday lunches, the sharing is epic! The atmosphere is always relaxed yet special. Have brought friends and family (some who are rather fussy!) who all loved it. Thanks Chequers, we will see you soon

Last night my husband and I found ourselves child-free. This is a once in a blue moon occurrence so we decided to go out somewhere nice for dinner. We always struggle to decide on where to eat. I work as a chef and love exploring new flavours and textures with food, whereas my husband can be a little more conservative... More
