A beautifully appointed gastro-pub that’s been serving customers since sedan-chair carriers first quenched their thirst here in 1776. A short walk from The Circus and the Royal Crescent, The Chequers’ reputation for excellent ales and great food has made it a firm favourite with city locals and visitors alike; booking is advisable. The upstairs restaurant has the look and feel of the ground floor rooms; a large window into the kitchen introduces an air of modern theatricality to the enjoyment of such dishes as ham hock terrine with pickled vegetables or pheasant pie with chips.
