Dining room very disappointing, definitely not the feel of a 5 star hotel, much more like a bistro. Dining room requires good quality linen tablecloths, very stark white paintwork needs to be ivory satin and quality curtains not Roman blinds. The food was excellent and the service was very good.

Perfect place to meet up with a very dear ex PMRAFS nurses way back over 40yrs. You could not fault the food , service and setting . We have been three times now and it never fails to please us . Food is nicely presented with love ,care ,attention to detail and above all tastes great . Great value for money . Look forward to going again .

10/10 for a wonderful lunch at remarkable value on the 2 for 1 deal (3 courses).
Probably the best lunch we've ever had in Bath.

I’v eaten at this restaurant several times and will do so again next week. It is arguably the best in Bath, the Menus are superb and the food presented beautifully . The selection of breads and butters prior to the 1st course is a great improvement on the usual basket of sliced stick.
All 3 courses were excellent , the wine list is comprehensive and house wines by the glass are available.
Overall, dining at the Gainsborough is a most enjoyable event. Mr Moon is a most imaginative Chef.

Lovely Sunday lunch and great service. The roast beef was gorgeous. The only issue was that the sticky toffee pudding was black, burnt and completely inedible and had to be sent back. We were still charged for the full amount as well. Not good enough for an establishment as good as this. Apart from that it was a great experience and I would go again.

The food was excellent and beautifully presented, from the breads with the different butters to complement them, to the coffee and chocolates. Everything we chose was tasty and perfectly cooked. The service was also friendly and efficient. The lunchtime deal was very good value too. We enjoyed it so much we booked to come on the evening of my husband’s birthday in a couple of weeks. We look forward to another lovely meal very soon.

I've been for the Dan Moon tasting on a number of occasions. Every time, until now, I had an excellent time. Unfortunately, this was far from ideal experience, with my Wife been insulted right at the start of our evening with the Waiter suggesting that she was pregnant (when she is not). This remark left us with an unenjoyable rest of our visit this time which is a great shame. The food was good, but dampened off the bat from the service.

Had a lovely drink in the bar before going to our table. We were served by a lovely Scottish waitress who had a chat with us and explained the flavours of the gins, while we had our drinks there were nibbles on the table to enjoy before we were led to our table. The menu is compact but still with many options for everyone to enjoy which we did! We had the 5 course tasting menu and one person had that with wine pairings; the food itself was gorgeous and so well presented with each dish having exquisite flavourings. After all of the courses, I was given a plate of truffles as a happy birthday gesture which was greatly appreciated!! The service was impeccable and everyone was extremely friendly

We had a 2-for-1 lunch deal with 3 courses. Waiters were attentive but not intrusive, and very pleasant. The food was beautifully served. The second cheapest bottle of red was lovely. They give you a small selection of different breads and unusual butters to go with them which, like the main event, were delicious. All in all, a lovely dining experience for my wife's birthday.

Very cost, comfortable restaurant with good choice of menus - a la carte or 5 or 7 course tasting menus with or without wine so something for everyone. We dined from the a la carte and were very pleased with our choices. The staff that served us were very friendly and set the tone for a nice break at the hotel for my husband's birthday. There was also a good cocktail menu in the bar and nice wine list to choose from.

The Dan Moon Gainsborough is the definition of "All fur coat and no Knickers". Myself and my parter were underwhelmed at the standard of the food and declined to eat two of the five course we were given. Unfortunately it was not as described neither the price reflect the quality we received.

Recommended to me by a friend, so booked for my husband’s birthday.
First class establishment, difficult to fault in any way....attentive service, delicious, well presented imaginative food served in a relaxing setting. Personally I am not keen when restaurants add 12.5% service charge as I would rather decide on gratuities myself, but just my own small preference. We will return!

We have wanted to try the restaurant for a while, so we were delighted to see that there was a 2 for 1 lunchtime offer, which made the 3 course meal very affordable. All of the staff were extremely pleasant and professional and we were made to feel very welcome. The food choice was excellent, and the food itself was outstanding, beautifully presented and delicious. We will return and recommend to friends and family.
