We are a grade-II townhouse bar and restaurant located in the heart of Bath, complete with our very own characterful private dining rooms. A balance of traditional Georgian features and contemporary furnishings creates a warm and relaxing setting suitable for all occasions.
Overlooking some of the city’s finest architecture, including the Roman Baths, Pump Room and Bath Abbey, the restaurant’s central location and proximity to Bath’s main attractions makes it the perfect spot for dining. Whether it’s a morning coffee stop, a light lunch or dinner following a busy day’s shopping and sightseeing, or a special event, you can enjoy our seasonal menus, tour experiences and private dining.
The restaurant is a short walk from both Bath Spa train and bus station as well as a number of central car parks.

Service began quick and efficient. Food excellent. By the end of the evening front of house staff were nowhere to be seen. Three tables were waiting for their bill. Only one minor member of staff was helpful and explained the reason for the delay.

Lovely food, even on the set menu. Friendly and welcoming staff and good value for money. The only issue was the temperature. The air con was on and made the restaurant very cold. It was turned off when we asked but it didn't make for a very comfortable evening out.

We initially sat outside as the weather was warm, and the young guy serving us was delightful, when it turned a bit chilly we moved inside, and the service became rather lacklustre, and the place was only half full so it wasn't due to capacity. The mint tea ordered was undrinkable, and I wanted a good 10-15 mins to get it resolved, and in the end just ordered the bill. The food was just ok, wouldn't rush back, or recommend sadly :(

Excellent value, very good service, great location right opposite the baths, did the tour and walked straight across to our reserved table, no fuss or drama on a Friday night, would recommend to all as a package, also liked the option of reverting to main menu if I wanted

Nice restaurant and my Dad loved it but slightly limited menu choices and quite expensive for more of a casual type lunch. Would be good if they did some offers or added more to the menu.

Really friendly and helpful staff. Good service and we were asked if we had any allergies. Took into account my allergy and the food was excellent

Will definitely go again when we visit Bath

Food was fantastic.
Steak was better than any I’ve had at Gaucho Grill!!!
We went as part of a Twilight package at the Roman Baths. Next time we’ll skip the baths and head to the Restaurant.
Brilliant!

Booked the Roman Baths torchlit Visit & Dinner Package - A special package offering a visit to the Roman Baths, followed by a three-course dinner at the Roman Bath Kitchen restaurant, opposite the Roman Baths. What a fantastic wedding anniversary experience - booked our 3 course dinner for 7.30pm - the food was absolutely delicious, tasty and hot when it arrived. The service was prompt and friendly - our waitresses Ulla and Lydia were helpful in recommending dishes on the menu and we requested to see the chef Frank to commend him on the quality of his delicious food - we chose the butternut soup, followed by pan fried salmon and desert all freshly prepared and delicious - the best meal we’ve had on our trip to Bath so far. We would highly recommend The Roman Bath Restaurant - ambience, service, quality of food excellent and such a friendly warm team of staff led by the manager James who was a great ambassador for the restaurant. Will definitely be recommending to our friends and on TripAdvisor for the benefit of others visiting Bath.

I enjoyed a Mother’s Day treat along with my mum and sister at The Roman Baths Kitchen. We had a lovely table outside in the sunshine, the food was lovely, and I received a complimentary glass of champagne because I cancelled my peppermint tea order which took a while to arrive. Thank you.

It looks like a cafe not a restaurant. It is noisy with buskers working outside and the terrace out front is like sitting in a cage in a zoo because of the numbers of people shuffling along to the Cathedral. The web site photographs do not accurately reflect this venue.

Thank you StephenJ for your review. I'm sorry we weren't to your liking, however our website does clearly state our location within the City; 'We are located in the centre of Bath, on the iconic Abbey square overlooking some of the city’s finest architecture, including the Roman Baths, Pump Room and Bath Abbey' It is also explained that we are open daily for breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner and drinks. So again, we are sorry this wasn't what you were expecting.

The food was delicious and the staff attentive. We were early in the evening so had the restaurant to ourselves for the most part. However the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.
