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 free jazz sessions from 8.00 every Sunday.

we had visited this lovely and cosy pub a little over a year ago, and were pleasantly surprised at how great this place was. On our 2nd visit to Bath, we decided to re-visit Gascoyne Place- just as good as I remembered. The staff was excellent, very attentive. They recommended and served us 'Devon Red' a red apple cider, which... More

We decided to go here by chance and were all very impressed. The service was top notch, wine excellent and the food out of this world. We stuck to the 3 courses for £20 option (which included most of the a la carte menu) and sent every plate back scraped clean. The chef clearly takes a lot of pride in... More

The food was Michelin standard. The service was faultless. Menu delightful, ambiance lovely. We eat out all the time and spent three weeks eating all over Bath. This was by far the best dining experience. My two daughters had the same opinion and even went to thank the chef. It was a glorious evening and not pricy. One of the... More

we ate here our first night in bath. The food was excellent! Usually one of us will like our meals more than the other but this time we were both totally impressed. Service was a bit slow, we were in no hurry but if you had children or somewhere to be you might have been frustrated

Pre-theatre booking. Excellent wine, starter, main course and dessert. Service attentive, friendly and helpful. Chef shared his starter recipe which was exquisite.

Right opposite the Theatre Royal, well situated in the centre of Bath. Don't be put off by the outside of the building, just needs a coat of paint. Inside is where it gets good ! We decided on an early lunch in Bath before catching the train home, a good decision as the lunch was excellent the best fish, chips... More

I keep coming back here as the food is so consistently great. Last night they catered for my party of twelve brilliantly, both in terms of the excellence of cooking/presentation and efficient service. I started with a sublime goats cheese mouse paired with salt baked beetroot and candied nuts, followed by my favourite, traditional fish and chips. They use beautiful... More

Called in for a late lunch whilst visiting family in Bath. It was quiet, we sat in the window watching the world go by. Good choice on menu reasonably priced, something to suit everyone.We went for the two courses at £14.50 each, I loved the vege option, showed a bit of imagination and not the usual vege lasagne! Wonderful lemon... More

We went for dinner last night because of the live jazz. Outside it looks like an old pub that I wouldn't normally give a second glance to, but inside it was lovely. The food was excellent, both in taste and presentation. We both made changes to our chosen dish which the staff dealt with quickly without a murmer. The ambience... More
