We had the 8 course tasting menu and all courses were extremely delicious. The wine list was reasonable we didn’t have the wines to match each course because of driving home afterwards.
The restaurant was very quiet for a Thursday lunchtime so no atmosphere. Staff were very attentive and service was excellent.

Celebrating our Wedding anniversary we chose to dine at The Wife Of Bath in the little quaint village of Wye.
Having already eaten at the Duke William of Ickham some weeks prior and Rock Salt we decided to try another in the list of Mark Sargents restaurants.

We were not disappointed - the service the food and decor was impressive.
Casual but refined decor with subtle hints to reflect its Spanish theme.
The food was full of flavour with a wide range of wines and drinks to choose from.
Would love to come back and work our way through the menu such choice - will be back for sure.

The car park was very handy too for diners as it was a busy day in the village so parking was limited.

Quite simply could not be bettered.

The food was tasteful, imaginative and well presented. The service was top notch.

Two of our party were long established vegetarians who commented that this was one of the very best meals ever.

Thank you so much Wife of Bath, we will be back SOON!

The food is elegant and exciting. Presentation is good but not overly fussy. All the flavours shine through and you can tell that the ingredients are super fresh and of the highest quality. I have never had a disappointing meal here. The service is lovely and attentive without being intrusive. I thoroughly recommend it.

You have to love the Wife of Bath, I remember when it was pretentious and over the top,with staff standing beside you as you ate...but the new owners are wonderful, refreshing Spanish theme, exciting menus, the flavours are amazing, the staff are fun and engaging, please do not be afraid to talk to them, they are very nice people, who want you to enjoy you're experience, ask questions about the food they are very helpful. Great wine list, recommend 2016 Malbec. We will be back soon.

Unfortunately there were a number of very loud groups which I understand is difficult to manage, but my mother is partially deaf which made it very difficult for her. As always the food and staff were excellent, but I think the menu could do with a refresh as there were quite a few items I had already tried last time we visited in October 2018 still on the menu.

We have been to the Wife of Bath a few times now. Food is always superb, service exceptional. We introduced our friends who also loved it. A very relaxed Saturday lunch, a magnificent paella. Stayed 3 hours!! It has become one of our favourite places to eat. Wish it was nearer to our home.

We had a delicious birthday Sunday lunch. We have been to the restaurant twice recently and on both occasions the food was fantastic. The warm bread was delicious. It has definitely improved from when it first opened. Please keep up the good work. I want to come back again and try the Gin Mare cheesecake! D

We went there for a Valentines meal on Saturday 16th February. We were not disappointed and the service was exemplary. The food was excellent despite the slight confusion on the menu regarding the tapas starter option which is not obvious at a first glance. Main courses were superb and my wife says that her fish was cooked to perfection. We would have no hesitation recommending this establishment to our friends and colleagues and will definitely be back soon.

We had Valentine's Day lunch here and I have to admit that it was a much more pleasant experience from the last time we visited. This time there were mostly only couples eating, so no noisy tables with large groups. Service was very good, and we chose from the a la carte menu - a great scallop starter, and a fantastically tasty baked cod main for me, and rabbit and ox cheek for my husband - empty plates all around, all washed down with a nice carafe of house white. For dessert, my other half reckoned he'd had one of the best cheesecakes he'd ever eaten, and I had a decadent chocolate tart. It was a lovely afternoon and we came away well pleased that we had given The Wife of Bath another chance on this rather special day.
