Fabulous! Well worth the drive from London and will 100% be back! The open fire was perfect after the torrential rain and can't wait to visit the terrace in Summer! Thank you!

Love Sunday lunch here! Always super yummy and stunning location. Only improvement is general service is a bit slow (don’t mind waiting for the food) more regarding drinks and getting bill/ paying bill. But small niggle on a great establishment!

Amazing roast dinner - would highly recommend. A bit noisy, but understandable as it was a Sunday and very popular. Service was slightly slow when it came to ordering, but staff were lovely!

A little over priced for what it was but very tasty ...chairs very uncomfortable, suggest you take a cushion. Staff were lovely and they had an array of gins which for me is always a plus point...will definitely go again.

The booking process was easy. The receptionist answering my call to say I was going to be late was courteous. The table request was reserved. Easy to hold a meeting in privacy in the corner past the kitchen. The service was great... not rushed to take orders... brought drinks and let us get on with our business. Menu varied and good value. Food served with pizzazz, hot and tasty.
Thank you. Ideal surroundings for us. ..... plus plenty of free Parking!!!

Every Sunday, if possible, we try and go here for our roast. It is soooo delish. The roast beef is my favourite but my husband also says the nut roast is superb too. I can sincerely say I wish I had my Christmas Day lunch here instead of the Olive Tree which was a total disappointing for £165 a head.
I usually ask to be seated in the main dining room and without fail they are courteous enough to grant our request. The staff is so lovely and never have a “face on them” which can literally ruin a dining experience. If I haven’t been there for awhile I offer long for their Sunday Roast. It’s the best in Bath for sure!!! X

our reservation was double booked, and we were asked to bring it forward from 1330 to 1300 h
our table was next to a window in the conservatory - both of us felt chilly throughout our meal
the roast chicken and beef were nice enough - the chicken could, however, have been more moist
the roast potatoes weren’t crisp, and the Yorkshire puddings were too crisp
almost as good as a home-cooked roast dinner, but without the effort, time, or washing up!

10 of us(6 adults, 3 kids and 1 baby) had a great lunch and were well fed. Food took a little while to come out but to be expected on a busy Saturday, felt the staff were a little stretched. Will be back.

This was one of our favorite meals on our vacation. The food was amazing and the restaurant itself was so charming. The location is not in Bath city center but it is absolutely worth the 10-15 minute drive to get there. Excellent experience!

Lovely ambiance and views, and the service was fantastic. Unfortunately the food was a little disappointing. I had the roast pork which was listed with “crackling” but it was just a soggy trim of fat around the meat. The potatoes were quite hard and undercooked. I would still recommend this pub as the sticky toffee desert was AMAZING!

Thank you so much for leaving us a review! Thanks again for such lovely comments on our service, I'll be sure to pass them on to the team. I am very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your roast pork on the day of your visit I believe we had similar complaints and I have raised this with the kitchen team already. Please come back again for our 'amazing' sticky toffee and hopefully we can show you what our Roast Pork should look like!!

Visited for the first time on a sunday lunch. Loved the place, service was great and food nicely made. Only little downside, I've ordered the roast pork and it was supposed to have crackling served with it according to the menu, sadly it didn't. Besides the disappointment for my favourite bit of the meal missing, all the rest was perfect, I would have gave it a 5* if it wasn't for that.

The perfect place for a special occasion, the food is delicious, the service perfect (human so some tiny hiccups can happen but they are honest about it and fixed everything in half a second ! warm and really made me and my family feel special), and the view is just outstanding.
Our favourite place for a birthday celebration for many years !

Food was ok but not worth the price. I had a moving mountains veggie burger and the bread was cheap and not very nice and only came with a small amount of fries. The sticky toffee pudding was more cake like than pudding. The staff were friendly but sometimes took a while to get their attention. A shame because it had been recommended.

Lovely location with easy parking. My son enjoyed his fish and chips and my daughters shin of beef was very good. I found my beef burger a bit dry - maybe a brioche would have made a better bun?

Thanks for leaving us a review, I've passed your brioche comments on to the Head Chef is looking at brioche bun samples for the burgers in the New Year, you'll have to come back and (hopefully) we'll have improved on this! Thanks again!

We were disappointed as no Christmas lunch menu even though it was Christmas Eve . So we had fish and chips which was not great . Batter thick and oily.Then I ordered the crumble. It looked like something your granny would serve up visually but hers would have been a proper crumble not just over cooks slosh topped with a heap of crumble mixture that did not seem to have been cooked together just served together. We have had lovely lunches before on the terrace but this was not up to normal standards that we have experienced before .

We enjoyed a lovely lunch last Sunday with delicious food, great wine and a lovely ambience. The only downside is we would have preferred a table with views over the hills, as this is the reason we chose the pub. However, we will just have to go back another day and hopefully get to enjoy the views.

Had the Christmas menu which was really lovely, portions are avoid size and food really good. Started getting a bit noisy as we were leaving but we went for lunch and although it was busy service was very good. Lovely place to meet friends, very accommodating, overall great experience and would recommend. Have been there with the dog, for a birthday celebration and now Christmas meal and enjoyed every time.
