    Don’t bother. When I booked for Sunday lunch I stated that the dietary requirements was for gluten free options to be available. We were seated and ordered our drinks. The wine arrived still corked. Had to ask for it to be opened. Then asked for gluten free menu. We were told to go on an app to select from. Not easy to read. Then told that these are not available on Sundays. They also said ALL Sunday roasts had gluten and the chefs weren’t willing to accommodate non gluten roasts as they are supplied from outside. We then left without ordering anything as they couldn’t accommodate dietary requirements. Would NEVER RECOMMEND this place.

    Not good - lots of things not available on a Saturday night. People next to us had a starter that was still frozen. Items missing from our meals. Staff were trying their best but there seemed to be an underlying problem somewhere.

    I wonder why bath continues to like the gentlemen club look for bars and restaurants . The menu consists of the same dishes that most restaurants produce . Not very imaginative. It was quiet and relaxed the service was good

    No one to welcome at entrance, took ages to order both a drink and then food. Fish and chips - fish was so bland and batter was soggy and didn’t taste nice, however the burgers were good and chips were good. Staff waiting were slow and a bit disinterested, one decided to move tables next to us and lay them, smashing glasses all over the table and seat, narrowly missing me. This could’ve waited until we had left as it was not busy at all. Puddings very disappointing - children’s chocolate mousse was a dollop of unset chocolate mush and ice creams were bland and pricey at £2.50 a scoop. Sticky toffee pudding I’m told was good. Sadly, not a great experience, £60 later we regretted choosing to try The Milsom, which we only did because it was fairly new and they advertised 1/3 off food - this offer ended the previous day and was only Mon-Fri. No set menu which is only offered Mon-Thurs. Disappointing all round, maybe explains lack of customers on a Saturday night.

    This was my first visit to the Milsom with a friend who was visiting from France. The manager was very welcoming and his knowledge of the building and its history was very interesting and it was refreshing to have someone who is passionate about their surroundings and also about the history of Bath. The set menu was very good value for money.

    What used to be Loch Fyne (after it was a bank) has now been thoroughly ‘done over’ into a restaurant ‘with rooms’ and vey nice it looks too. Money and imagination has been put in to make a very stylish dining place. The high level booths with banquettes were ideal for our group of 6, including 2 under 12s. The menu is very good and - at £23 for 3 courses - the set menu is good value. Starters are substantial and well presented. It was a pleasant change to see that the childrens’ menu included a (small) steak and chips rather than the usual chicken nuggets/fish fingers. The only downsides were outside staff’s control . There appeared to be only one person in the kitchen, so service was painfully slow (we arrived at 1 and left at 330) but that was understandable given that it was between Christmas and New Year. And as we were finishing the power went out as water gushed through the ceiling in the reception area, so we were (safely) ushered out in darkness as the restaurant closed.

    The food supplied for Christmas day dinner was excellent in both quantity and quality, the chef is to be commended., service was a little slow though with plenty of time between courses, understandable on that day, as who wants to work on Christmas day, so all forgiven. Worth a visit for the food.

    We chose Milsom for our office Christmas dinner, opting for the festive pre-set menu. Despite booking early to take advantage of the free welcome drink offer, we were charged for the drinks, resulting in an unexpected extra cost of £40. The overall food experience was satisfactory, with some highlights, but the vegetarian option fell short of expectations. Additionally, the desserts lacked flavour.

    The booking system had us initially worried as there appeared to be so many rules and regulations that it almost made us cancel . We mentioned this to a staff member who said we weren’t the first to point this out. However on arrival despite the impression when booking we found staff welcoming and accommodating . Food quality was good and all our party enjoyed their varied menu choices. Service started very well with very helpful and friendly, efficient waitress but tailed off after an apparent change of staff with us having to attract the attention of a staff member to ask for dessert menus, tea and coffee etc rather than being offered. This may be due to the fact staff were prepping for a Xmas party and we were also still there after our allotted time due to train delays for one party member. We will visit again as we did enjoy our meal and good quality food. I can’t recommend the Milsom yet but I’m sure I will in future if we have we have a positive visit next time .

    Had an early Christmas celebration lunch with some colleagues. The food was good but incredibly expensive, aslo prepare for a long wait. Table was booked for 12pm and our food took an 1 hour ans a half to arrive. There was no one in the restaurant at the time, so they weren't overly rushed. It was nice but I won't be going again.

    One of the first to be seated at 5pm, wasn’t offered water, had to ask, no glasses on the table so had to go to the bar to ask for some. Starter plates were not cleared before or mains came. The running manager seemed more concerned about the staff taking orders. Found the manager to be quite obnoxious and loud, if we didn’t hear him loudly explaining to each customer that there was no arancini, curry, fish and chips or sea bass we may have had an opportunity to listen to some of the music and enjoy the ambience. The food however was very tasty, lovely building, the setting is nice. The waitresses we had were very sweet. Was surprised to have the service charge included rather than the customer being able to have option to leave a tip or not.

    Lacking attention to detail. The standard tables have seats so low that you can't comfortably reach the tables. There is no where to leave coats but the shaped chairs are not suited hold coats. Asked for a cushion but the waitress forgot and had to be asked again. The sole with shrimps and samphire was a very generous size but with only 8 shrimp and no samphire. The hake was tiny and list in a sea if flavourless onion sauce. We were offered deserts but the desert menu never arrived. The waitress didn't even remember that we had asked for deserts when we gave up and got the bill. £110 for 2 mains and a bottle of wine was way too much for the mediocre service and poor decor. Will definitely not be going back.

    Set menu was disappointing particularly as one main choice wasn’t available and 2 desserts were not very good. One of us chose venison haunch off the a la carte and it had to be sent back because the venison pieces were raw. Waitress remarked ‘that’s how they serve it’ and when we replied saying that the meat was indigestible she agreed to take it back to the kitchen. When it finally arrived back it was enjoyable but it spoilt the dining experience. We wouldn’t eat there again.

    Looks lovely, though staff are uncoordinated and both of our starters and mains were completely tasteless.

    One of the busiest days of the year and only two people serving, waiting in tables and reception. Having said that both ladies were lovely and did their best under the circumstances. Food was mediocre and luke warm. Such a shame!

    It took two hour to get drinks and our main course .We gave up on desserts and coffee because we were fed up waiting. Problem was low staffing levels. Second time this has happened.

    Really disappointing experience at the Milsom. Booked a table at 8.30pm, already 3 items in the menu had sold out, and most other dinners were finishing or leaving. There was a mix up with the order, so starter at and main courses came out incorrectly and in the wrong order - twice. The cauliflower curry had gone through to the kitchen as a side of cauliflower. The main courses came out and the two cauliflower curries were actually the cauliflower side dishes so had to go back. The third main-course had obviously sat on the hot plate and was dried up and cold by the time the cauliflower curry was remade. After the table was cleared we were ignored for 45 minutes until the waitress gave us the bill and told us we needed to leave at 10.45pm as they were closing. The playlist was decent and the company was good so not a complete disaster but I would not return or recommend.

    This was our first visit to The Milsolm and it gives the appearance of being a smart venue. Entering the building the decor is slightly eclectic but sits well with the height of the rooms and the interior fittings. It was certainly comfortable surroundings and it felt warm, to many restaurants are cold to sit and eat in. The food was superb, beautifully presented, fresh, plentiful without being wasteful and very tasty. The menu is well balanced to suit all diners. Unfortunately the service let the experience down. We would have given 5 stars if the service was attentive and with a little more haste. Soup was delivered without a soup spoon that then took a lot of arm waving before the barman noticed and alerted the server. Having finished our starter we were then presented with a sweet menu. 'We haven't had our main course' we protested and a further 30 minutes elapsed before our main course arrived. Cutlery was required which again I had to remind the server. From entering the restaurant to finishing our main course was 2 hours, we couldn't face a long wait for a sweet. The Milsolm is a nice place to eat with pleasant and comfortable surroundings, but the service needs to tightened up and become more attentive. It would appear that there was insufficient experienced staff when we visited. Would we recommend The Milsolm? Yes we would with a little prewarning.

    The restaurant looks great and felt really comfortable, but the waitress was off her game and obviously having an off day (possibly her first day), so it took a while to sort a few errors in ordering our food and sorting the bill. The food on the whole was good except the fish (fish and chips) was overdone, sea bass very greasy (too much butter perhaps) and ice cream scoop rather small for the price. It wasn't great but I think we will go back in a few months to see what it's like then.
