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 duck breast, confit leg, heart, apricot, radicchio and spinach.
