Perfectly placed in the heart of Bath, you’ll never be far from the action when you eat at The Orange Artichoke.

Floor to ceiling windows and a Scandi design make it an ultra-chic place to eat, and the modern vibe runs into the bar, which is a cool spot where you can enjoy a drink

Our bar & terrace is the place to catch up with friends, wind down after a long day in the city or pop in for after-work drinks, it's all possible with us.

Our chefs have created a variety of bespoke menus to impress even the most discerning of diners. Whether you’re in the mood for a hearty breakfast, light bar snack, dinner to share or sophisticated afternoon tea, we’ve got the dish for you.

For dinner, choose from an impressive selection of small plates and delicious mains, all inspired by great British produce. It’ll be a feast to remember and don’t forget to save room for dessert.

*Please be aware that reservations for the afternoon tea needs to be made 24 hours in advance

We stayed at the Apex hotel for two night, because of staff shortages we were over 4 hours late getting into our room. As compensation the night manager (Trish ) explained our room had been upgraded and we were given a discount on the bill, also we were given a few free drinks vouchers.
She bent over backwards to ensure our stay was enjoyable.
Many thanks Trish a credit to the Apex hotel.
I’m not not if it’s due to Covid but my evening meal was awful as a meat free person I found the choices appalling and the meal I had wasn’t enjoyable at all and except for the fries it was left on my plate.
My husband has the sausage and mash potato and enjoyed his meal.
We had two breakfast booked and the continental breakfast was very good and a lot of choices.
The first morning I had 5he omelette and that looked like it wasn’t freshly cooked and quite tasteless.
My husband had the cooked breakfast and the first day the eggs looked liked they had been cooked an hour befor he order and the bacon was completely cremated.
The second day it was a little better but definitely not freshly cooked.

Omg what can I say. We visited for a birthday cream tea treat and it was amazing. Service was excellent. We were seated on the balcony, and were able to go inside to enjoy the air con when we got to hot.

Limited menu. Setting acceptable but not particularly exiting. Menu was limited though food itself was excellent.

On arrival the concierge failed to find our booking. He was very rude and dismissive and said that we can wait to one size while he try’s to free up something but it was very lack lustre.

I would definitely not recommend any dinning in this establishment

The staff were friendly, but the restaurant had no atmosphere. The food was okay, but nothing special. All that was available was a fixed menu which did provide good value for money, but it would have been nice if the a la carte menu had been available. We ordered a bottle of champagne which turned up warm and needed to be chilled. The staff took it away and put it in a chiller, bringing it back half way through our meal.

Calm atmosphere, attentive and polite staff, particularly Euan, the manager, who went out of his way to make our meal enjoyable. Delicious food, well presented. Our second visit and will definitely return.

We went there to celebrate our anniversary. Since we arrived the staff couldn’t be any friendlier!! They accomodate us by the window in a very spacious table.
My partner has a dairy allergy and the waitress was so kind to help us to go through the menu and find something suitable for him.
Food was delicious, Especially the home smocked salmon and the pork belly with clams.
The best touch was the dessert plate with home made macaronis and “happy anniversary” write on it. Thank you so much everyone!!
Really good experience, really enjoyable food and really friendly staff.
Definitely will be back.
