Situated just off The Circus this restaurant is a real find. The interior is comfortable and pleasant, both upstairs (ground floor) and downstairs.

The service is friendly and Spa water is served free, the Circus making a donation to charity.... More

Walking right round The Circus is a wonderful experience - loved seeing the fabulous architecture, the painted doors and peering down into the basement gardens. Very near the shops so easy to find.

The circus is great! I have always loved visiting this circus. Standing in the middle of the circus and making noise.. Eg. Clapping of whistling is fascinating.

Amazing architecture! We sat on the bench in the middle of the street, looking down Gay St, whilst eating lunch, a lovely view!

When we were on our tour bus it went past this whilst we listened to the historical information about it, it is worth seeing if you are interested in architecture.

This is quintessential Bath and is a must see for all visitors. The architecture in Bath is beautiful but the circus is exceptional.

When you consider it took 14 years to build and with only rudimentary wooden scaffolding The Circus is an outstanding architectural gem. Use the panoramic setting on you phone and get a great memory of this wonderful place.
