A lovely little Georgian pub tucked away close to the Circus, the Assembly Rooms and Royal Crescent. The ground floor bar and first floor dining room both have fresh flowers, parquet flooring, chic metro tiles and cushioned pew benches. A carefully curated wine list awaits at the bar, as do fine spirits, local ales and lagers. Do try a 'Chequers Classic' of salt and pepper squid then duck breast and confit leg, followed by chocolate fondant – this is five star fare served in a relaxed pub setting. Sunday lunch is not to be missed, but book ahead as locals know and love it here. The tasting menu is irresistible - seven courses of the chef team's finest seasonal dishes. Add happy, knowledgeable staff into the mix and you have a bone fide Bath gem.
