I went in Bar Lounge one busy lunchtime in June and met a friend there. We had sandwiches...Pulled pork and piccalilli and a club sandwich...both sandwiches came with lovely crisp chips and were tasty and plentiful. We ordered a bottle of the Shiraz wine which was really nice but a bit pricey - but that's my only negative. The staff couldn't have been more attentive and friendly but professional. The bar was very busy as it was Chester Races weekend, but the staff took this in their stride and were pleasant and professional at all times.
We will definitely be visiting this bar again as it was well run and managed and all the staff were helpful and friendly.

We stopped here for a mid shopping / sightseeing drink on a wednesday afternoon. We chose this bar as its a place the other couple we were with had eaten at before and they highly recommended it! It was fab - we sat outside in the gardens which were beautiful and after studying the extensive cocktail menu decided on 4 different ones - (one of the other couple had had a cocktail last time that was no longer on the menu and after asking after it the bar staff said it was no trouble for them to make him one)!

would definatly return!

Wine on a school night?? Yes please!
Table booked for 2 at 6.30 using a gift voucher we had.

Having only been once before for drinks I had no idea what the food was like.
Pleasantly surprised, fab trio of starters served by the 'lovely Lottie'

The steak was lovely but u fortunately mine was cold half way through as it had been sliced before it was served.
Not a nice touch!!!

The food was good, apart from that.
I was quite disgusted at the smell inside the bar (not restaurant) as it smelt of dirty mops and stale beer and body odour!
This got worse up the stairs to the ladies loo, im sure a new carpet is in need!

But I would go back, lovely staff, good team!!

Great bar to visit for a drink. Extensive cocktail list with many different ones to try. Recommend 'made in Chester' and 'Barlounge sangria'. Large, covered, heated out door area, so work in any weather. Busy with a mixed crowd.
Smart little restaurant where the service was great and the food really tasty. They serve food in bar area too and if anything like the restaurant it will be good (though we didn't try it).
If ever back in Chester (which hopefully we will be as it's a really lovely city) we will be back at Barlounge. Thanks to friend Stephanie (much younger age group than me!) for recommending we try here.

Came again to this amazing bar/restaurant and popped in for a few cocktails. They may have changed the menu but when I requested one from the old menu they were more than willing to make it. Drinks. Bob on. Hit the spot. Amazing selection. Would highly recommend visiting even if it is just for a drink. Staff so so friendly. Will be coming every time we visit the area!!!
