The food was amazing and you could tell that each dish was made to please. Although, it was a bit too quite. They don't seem to play music and you almost felt the need to speak quietly so everyone couldn't hear your conversation. But again, the food was mouth-watering good.

We visited the Circus on our way to see the Royal Crescent and it was worth a visit. The Circus (from Latin, meaning a ring, oval or circle) is of Georgian architecture and has been designated as a Grade I listed building. It is divided into three segments of equal length, the Circus is a circular space surrounded by large... More

Obviously good ingredients, beautifully put together. Anything on the menu will be great, not over fussy. Friendly and unobtrusive staff.

The Circus was our 2nd restaurant dinner of our 2 night stay in Bath. Unfortunately, it suffered by comparison with our 1st dinner at another nearby restaurant. We found the atmosphere to be cold and at least one staff member looked disinterested in her work. We had to ask our waitress to slow the pace of the meal; we had... More

Lovely architecture, nice to be able to stand in the centre and look around. Worth combining with a visit to the Royal Crescent which is very close and the museum at number 1 Royal Crescent if you fancy a few hours of all things Georgian.

Well worth a look around, some really nice buildings you can imagine parasol carrying ladies in crinolines walking around in the 18th Century, Nicer than the Royal Crescent in my opinion.

If your close it's worth walking the extra 100 meters or so but I wouldn't go out of my way any more than that to see it.

wonderful buildings oozing class and great architectual design. We walked through in day and also at night. At night they are so tempting to gaze into . some of them look beautifully decorated with elements of past grand lifestyles still remaining. What lucky people who live here. There is a restaurant called The circus very close which some of the... More

I took a friend here for a birthday lunch and we had a good time with delicious food. The tables were a bit close together for a more intimate occasion. Loos down steep stairs might be an issue for less able-bodied diners.
