Enjoyed the food and good service. Issue that we had was that it was quite chilly in the restaurant which was a shame. Lady on the table next to us even had her coat over her shoulders!

The best meal I've had in Bath. Outstanding. My only disappointment is that you couldn't accommodate me later in the month because you're already fully booked up, which leaves me no alternative but to go to The Ivy, where I've dined many times before. The food there is good but not as good or special as yours is. Our waiter was a charming Polish man called Paul I(Anglisised) who was extremely helpful. The waiters were all extremely professional. An extremely satisfying and enjoyable experience. Thank you. Peter Mackriel

We wanted to treat ourselves for very belated joint birthday, couldn’t fault it, staff were amazing (with a shout out to Lesley in the bar) food and ambience superb; not a cheap meal by any means, but if you want fine dining you get what you pay for.Excellent.

Great food and service ruined by being seated next to an overtired screaming kid and fussing parents at an 8pm Saturday night sitting.

The food is absolutely amazing, they perfectly accommodated my allergy, and nothing went untouched. The only downside that I can think of, is the noise level was a little loud and the staff did speak too softly to be heard fully, this did ruin the presentation where they would describe the dish (as we were missing bits of what was said). That being said I would recommend this to anyone who wants something special rather than just a meal in Bath.

Excellent wine choice, not overpriced. Elaborate dishes, very tasty and beautifully presented. The only issue was when I asked to have my cooling half-plateful reheated and it didn't reappear for ten minutes but that could be an indication of the care taken.

No it is a very dreary environment. Almost ugly, very dull and over serious more like a corporate venue.
The staff are excellent. I had a very bad reaction to one of the ingredients and my throat swelled and I was uncomfortable for a few hours. I am gluten free no cheese and I was told that the food conformed to my diet. I did not have tongue ulcers which can happen in the worst contamination but non the less I would not eat there again and have cancelled another meal for my sons birthday in December.

My friend and I went to celebrate my birthday. From the consierge greeting us and showing us to the restaurant, pointing out the lounge en route, to the waiters and waitresses and the very knowledgeable young man who helped us select the wine the staff were outstanding.

We enjoyed a lovely meal with wonderful flavours and glorious presentation and then retired to the lounge to finish our wine and round off a great experience with hot chocolate and a truffle. Bliss!

My sister and I have been in several times during weekdays and have always enjoyed the food. I had the sirloin and it was gristly and not tender and so I had to leave most of it. My sister enjoyed the chicken and we both enjoyed the starters and deserts and of course as always the service was very very good.

Would highly recommend the 7 course tasting menu. The food was superb and seemed to get even better with each course. The staff were friendly and professional and the atmosphere was lovely. Definitely worth the money!

the chicken tea was lovely. the pate was very good. the prawn in the scallop dish was tough and in a bowl that was hard to eat out of. lamb was great. duck was way too pink and actually raw. dessert lovely. Wine recommendations good.

Opted for the 5 course taster menu ( without wines ) very nice food. Small portions sadly and some dishes way over done with sauces and toppings sadly. Ie Duck and Beef. Very Enjoyable and great service. Limited menu choices would stop you eating here more than twice unfortunately.

If this place is striving for a michelin star it has a long way to go. Refine the menu, have a look at your FOH and continuity of service and raise their knowledge and enthusiasm. The pacing of dishes is off too as it felt there was no space between courses. It was all just a little to try hard and no focus

This was an early birthday treat to a good mate who lives a long way away. It had been recommended by another friend and it certainly lived up to her high praise.
We enjoyed the atmosphere ,gentle unobtrusive music, super setting ,friendly staff but mostly the fantastically presented and delicious food. So good my friend took her other half the next day !
