A piece of good news from The Chequers in Bath.
Joe Cussens (owner of The Chequers): "I'm delighted to announce that following a visit from an AA restaurant inspector earlier this week, we've been awarded a 2nd rosette for food. In their own words, the AA only award these to "excellent restaurants that aim for and achieve higher standards and better consistency."
Only three gastro pubs in Bath have been awarded AA rosettes: The Hare & Hounds has one and The Chequers now joins The Marlborough Tavern with two. In fact, there are very few restaurants in Bath that have achieved rosette standard at all, so it's a great achievement and richly deserved recognition for our head chef, Leigh Evans and his team.

The Chequers is also a Gastropub of the Year finalist!
In what's turned out to be a good week for the pub, we were delighted to learn that we've been shortlisted as a finalist in the gastropub category in this year's Bath Life Awards. The awards take place next month - fingers crossed...
