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.

My boyfriend and I went to Gascoyne on Valentine's day and it was everything really good. The atmosphere was romantic, all the staff service was excellent and the food was delicious. They created a different menu for Valentine's day but we ended up trying meals from the normal menu, which was a good decision.

Dropped in on the off chance last Saturday for lunch. One of the friendliest places I've visited in a long time. Great food, great service. Will return again.

Went out for a meal with 3 old uni friends and stumbled across this place beside the theatre. All of us opted for the beef after sharing some grazing boards to share. The food was sublime. My mate milo even said it was the best meal he has had in years. 20+ red and white wines on offer. We went... More

Great food, incredible service, and the jazz band was really great. Perfect sized little place and the music was just right to carry on a conversation. Definitely recommend it highly!

I came here for a Valentine's / Anniversary meal with my partner, as it had been highly recommended by many friends. On arrival, we were a little early, but will still given the option to have drinks at the bar or go straight to our table. Our waitress was a lovely young girl called EJ (guessing it is short for...
