Description: 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.

I have to say that the food and the service from the friendly waitresses was great. However, even though we booked a family birthday meal a couple of weeks in advance, when we arrived there was no table for us, they had apparently given it to someone else, and we were forced to go upstairs and were given a table...

We ate at Gascoyne Place as recommended by a friend. The food was exceptionally well cooked and very tasty. The wine was well priced per bottle and per glass. Although the food and service were excellent, the surrounding of this pub were a bit of a let down. We would return but this would be at a Iunchtime rather than... More

Found this place by chance as we were walking through Bath. It was our honeymoon and we were looking for somewhere pleasant to eat. We were not disappointed. Food was great, there was a good selection for vegetarians. The staff were pleasant and efficient. There was a good atmosphere and the jazz band added to our enjoyment.

We did book for Monday lunchtime, although when we arrived... More

We had visited Gascoyne place on a visit to Bath a while ago and enjoyed both the food and the Sunday night jazz. So much so that it became part of our wedding plans. We had our reception there and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food,drink and atmosphere received rave reviews from the guests. The effort that Marty and his staff... More

Found this place quite by chance today and decided to give it a try as the restaurant we had intended to eat in was full. We had a superb two-course lunch from the set menu and the service was perfect. Will definitely be recommending to our friends and we look forward to more visits in the future.

Gascoyne Place is ideally situated for a pre-theatre meal as it is located almost directly opposite the Theatre Royal Bath. We were lucky to find they had space and squeezed into the last free table mid-week. Despite the busy atmosphere, we were treated with courtesy and attention. Drinks were brought fast (always important when time before the theatre curtain up... More

I have eaten here 3 times over the past 18 months. each time for pre-theatre. Service is always good, speedy without being rushed. Food is excellent, tasty and nicely presented. And location can't be beaten for the theatre as it's directly opposite.
