Situated in a unique Grade II listed Georgian building in the heart of Bath, Gascoyne Place has enjoyed many awards and plaudits since opening in 1996. Five distinct spaces (from a traditional pub-like corner snug to elegant Georgian dining rooms) could be your setting in which to indulge in a modern British menu that only uses fresh ingredients, obtained through close links with local farms and fisheries. Located 20 metres from Bath's Theatre Royal, and overlooking Sawclose Piazza, Gascoyne Place suits pre or post theatre wining and dining marvellously, though not to be outdone, the restaurant hosts its own entertainment with live complimentary jazz sessions from 8.00 Every Sunday and live blues every Friday evening.

The dessert, a toffee cheesecake creation, was stunningly delicious. We only have two days here and we went both days for the dessert and great atmosphere. The staff went well beyond courtesy to make us feel welcome and the music was excellent. The manager, in particular, went beyond the call of duty!

We went for a meal as it's next to the Theatre Royal Bath where we had tickets for a performance. The waiters like to stand in the bar next door and you have to go searching for them if you want anything. My wife had to ask for salt and vinegar with her fish as they weren't provided automatically. So... More

Been here a few times. Food is always fabulous, staff lovely and drinks extensive. Any place that serves more than one cider is always a must! :D

The description of food makes it all sound very tempting, and it is beautifully presented, but the taste of the food itself was fairly average. I wouldn't object to going back, but it wouldn't be my first choice. We were there as a large group, the food came out all together which was good and it was all hot. The... More

We booked in advance due to great reviews and we certainly not disappointed! What great service and friendly staff. The food was plentiful and no matter how full you were, you didnt want to leave a single item on the plate

I have to be honest, I wasn't sure that we have a peaceful meal when we walked in as the bar was heaving and very loud. I also thought that it was be standard pub food. As we walked up the stairs it got quieter and as soon as the food arrived I was astounded by the presentation and taste.... More

We stumbled across this pub - wanting a nice Sunday lunch. The place is nice and the waiting staff were friendly and attentive. They also have an extensive menu - which is good for me, because I don't always want a roast on a Sunday! Ended up having calamari for starter, which was large and very tasty. Then had a... More

I booked Gascoyne Place for a team social of 35 people. Through all our discussions around our event, Marty and his team were very helpful. We pre-ordered our food, as we weren't arriving until late, and everything arrived as ordered. The Gascoyne Place team even managed to accommodate a couple of unscheduled diners with no difficulty at all. The wine... More

We went primarily for the live Jazz that they have on a Sunday evening, in our mind the food was an accompaniment. The Jazz was great but I have to admit that the food has to share the top billing as well. We had ham hock fritters and calamari for starters, the calamari was perfectly cooked and well flavoured but... More
